MLR Episode 67 – Gettin Shifty

With the first couple of weeks of the Minor League season over with, the guys are back and ready to discuss all the fun, interesting, and quirky things they have observed already in 2014. So the spectacle that is Opening Day may be behind us, but the fun of the season is only just underway! Thanks for your patients as well as the guys get settled into their broadcasting routines for 2014. It’s good to know that we have been missed!

Here’s what you’ll get in this episode:

A lot of observations amongst the guys so far. Sam witnessed how the Yankees new approach to infield shifts are not just taking place in the Bronx. Andrew touched on the early-season usage of the six-man rotation, while also discovering that he may (or may not) be Jay’s 31st favorite broadcaster to listen to!

With some of the Minor League’s best talent progressing towards the bigs, the never-ending debate on when to start a player’s Major League service clock has reached The Minor League Report. With the Astros calling up George Springer, does that give any indication of how highly they value fellow power hitting prospect Jonathan Singelton?

We’ll be bringing back our “Get Out of Town” segment, do you have any candidates you feel should be getting out of town?

Thank you again to everyone that participated in the Ask Sam Anything Q&A on Facebook! However, the questions don’t have to end there, as you can send questions or comments to us at ANYTIME at feedback@mlrpodcast.com!

We’re celebrating our 3rd MiLB Opening Day this week on the podcast. This podcast is awesome because the guys fill you in on life working in Minor League Baseball, not just from their perspective but they can give you a glance of what these prospects must go through when the season starts. Opening Day is upon us and we look forward to another successful season of the podcast!

Here’s what you’ll get in this episode:

The Minor League season starts this week and that means team assignments and rosters have begun to trickle out. What does the team do from arrival to the start of the season?

Media day, an opportunity to introduce the team to the media and fans, is just one of many responsibilities crammed into a short window of time.

One team has committed to going through the whole season with two Pitching Coaches.

You will find we have finalized our top ten list. Myrtle Beach gains some ground and Richmond and Charleston sneak into the back end. Here is how the list shakes out:

1. Iowa Cubs
2. Lancaster JetHawks
3. Myrtle Beach Pelicans
4. Tulsa Drillers
5. Tennessee Smokies
6. Memphis Redbirds
7. Wilmington Blue Rocks
8. Pawtucket Red Sox
9. Richmond Flying Squirrels
10. Charleston RiverDogs

We’re also hosting our very first “Ask Me Anything” on our Facebook page on Friday April 4th at 1 PM ET. Make sure you like us at The Minor League Report and post your questions to our very own Sam Sigal there. Remember, you can ask Sam ANYTHING!
