Prospect Podcast #2: Bart & Ramos at the Futures Game and a second half forecast

New, comments

For the first time in a decade, the Giants have prospects people outside the fandom want to talk about.

We still don’t have a title for our farm system and prospects podcast, but please feel free to pitch one down below. In the meantime, we’re calling it UPPWR (or UP POWER). Roger is desperate to change it.

In this week’s episode, we take a look at what Bart and Ramos’s performance at the Futures Game “means” for the Giants’ system, the unique quality of the excitement surrounding Marco Luciano — and how to properly say Luciano’s name — and the recent international signings the Giants made.

There are also some thoughts on last year’s draft and the second half of the minor league season.
