The MLB Winter Meetings are just about to kick off in Florida.
In recent days, the Padres have been linked to Eric Hosmer. I know it sounds far-fetched and it is.
We discuss the topic, as we try to figure out what exactly the Padres are doing. The team is not built to win now, so entertaining such an expensive free agent seems really strange, especially if you factor in that he does not fit the team defensively. Who knows.
The San Diego Padres will be playing a series in Mexico this coming May. We speak briefly about the game, and Luis Urias’ brother, Ramon.
It is well-known that the Padres have one of the best farm systems in all of major league baseball. We discuss some of the other top organizations and whether or not they have the depth the Padres do. The Braves, Yankees, and White Sox systems are all discussed.
The Padres have shut down Fernando Tatis Jr. for the winter, but there is still plenty to talk in regards to winter league ball. Andres Munoz recently threw on national television and was extremely impressive. The 18-year-old hit 102 on the radar gun and has all of Padreland a buzz.
In closing, we discuss the recent Baseball Prospectus rankings of the Padres’ top 10 prospects. No huge surprises, except maybe for the addition of Hudson Potts to the top 10 and the failure to include Joey Lucchesi. You can take these rankings with a grain of salt.
Thank you for your time and let us know if there is anything we can do to improve the show. Go Padres!
