We’re at the halfway point of the Minor League Baseball season. Who’s been your biggest surprise? Who’s been the biggest disappointment? Can Kris Bryant keep up his torrid pace in Iowa? If you’re a Cubs fan, you’ve got to be excited about the future. What about the Astros and their Minor League talent? The Cardinals? Lots of great first half story lines so far in 2014. Now on to the show!

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

The gang recounts some of the best bench-clearing Minor League brawls they have seen over the years. Mike gives his eyewitness play-by play of the most recent melee in Minor League Baseball between Altoona and New Hampshire.

Also, as we approach the half way mark of the season, teams have started to shuffle players to the next level while other organizations stand pat. How would you operate if you were in control of player development? Would you keep guys at at a level to mature? Or would you push them to the next phase and run the risk of failure?

Minor League Baseball All-Star games are abound and the guys discuss what kind of hard work is required for the front office staff’s that host these events. The planning, man power and effort are more than you might realize.
