Wish I had checked out the time stamps so I would know I’d be wasting my time with nearly 20 minutes of avisail garcia talk. I had to give up after the next man up got a yelich comparison. Looking forward to next week! Still love the podcast, I just can’t believe that avi Garcia is anything other than hot right now. I wish most of the guys discussed weren’t playing well enough to get air time because they are boring!

Thanks for listening, Scott! Yeah we got a little carried away with Avisail–I’ll have to do a better job of keeping things moving along next time. He is a pretty fascinating player though. Appreciate the feedback.


Any chance you guys might touch on guys who already peaked this year but might be coming down to earth? I’m thinking along the lines of Pete Alonso and Paul DeJong.

Asking for a friend!
