New, 10 comments

Even without a pick in the 1st round, the Giants still had an interesting draft. Just how interesting? You'll have to listen to find out.

As this picture suggests and the draft confirms, Bryan Reynolds is now too cool for school.

Minor Lines author Roger joins us to break down the Giants' 2016 draft, especially their #1 pick, switch-hitting outfielder Bryan Reynolds. Was there an organizational philosophy at play with most of these picks, or was it simply "best available player"?

Also, what kind of pitching depth might the new draftees provide? We also take a look at some of the burgeoning stars currently in the Giants' system, especially Phil Bickford and Aldalberto Mejia. Might these be names stitched to the back of a Giants uniform in the very near future?

Bryan and Doug certainly don't know the answers, and Roger does his best to tamp down their ridiculous prognostications and hopes (mainly Bryan's), but it's an informative hour that winds its way through all the really important notes about the Giants and the farm system. We also answer some draft-related Twitter questions. Definitely check it out.
