UMP: The Untitled McDongenhagen Project, Episode 18
This is the 18th episode of a sorta weekly program co-hosted by Eric Longenhagen and Kiley McDaniel about player evaluation in all its forms. The show, which is available through the normal FanGraphs Audio feed, has a working name but barely. The show is not all prospect stuff, but there is plenty of that, as the hosts are Prospect Men.
This episode is a little about next week’s Trade Value Rankings, but is mostly about last weekend’s Futures Game and what the guys thought about each player in terms of their prospect stock moving up or down based on this look.
2:08 – Eric leads us into a discussion of the prospects on next week’s Trade Value Rankings
12:35 – They begin the Futures Game notes with the AL Hitters (first catchers, then infielders, then outfielders)
43:40 – They then move on to the NL Hitters (first catchers, then infielders, then outfielders)
1:03:29 – Then they move to pitching, starting with the AL Pitchers, going in order of appearance in the game
1:14:17 – Then they finish with the NL Pitchers, going in order of appearance as well
Audio after the jump. (Approximately 1 hour 25 min play time.)
