The Tarp Talk gang is back with their weekly show. This week they are joined by the Prospect Czar and host of the Up and In Podcast, Kevin Goldstein (@Kevin_Goldstein) of Baseball Prospectus.
Before the guys talk with Kevin, they get into a recap of the Japan series. What they liked and didn’t like. Who they thought the last three cuts to the roster would be (kudos to Alan for calling it before it actually happened), who they thought would breakout this year and who they thought was over hyped.
Then Kevin comes on and the fun starts. We get a run down of some of the things he saw at Papago while the A’s were in Japan, including a story about how he was almost run over by the biggest Korean he’s ever seen. He talks about Cespedes and why he thought the contract was “brilliant.” After that it’s on to Sean Doolittle, Graham Godfrey and Tyson Ross, Michael Ynoa, and even a little video game talk.
As always, we thank you for listening!
