    Hmm, I think a better alternative to having Kiley just being a recurring guest might be for him to just host his own podcast. I think it would suit his personality better as this episode didn’t show the best chemistry between Kiley and Carson. It lacked the classic Cistulli banter I love.

      A subdued, reined in Carson is much more tolerable.

        A subdued, reined in Cistulli is not why people listen to Fangraphs audio. ESPN has podcasts. Niches mang.

    I think that Kiley will be a great addition. I enjoyed his marginal prospects podcast. The draft one with Jim Callis was excellent.

    1)I like the concept of having more prospect as the system warrants ( so the epic Royals system could have bunch and the 2014 Angels and 2011 White Sox could have 0). But how will you separate from say #17 and #18, it seems very arbitrary

    2)I would like OFP on scouting reports, projected role, and maybe something like BP’s new “Eyewitness Scouting Reports” as a model

    3)I hope you are the next Kevin Goldstein, start wearing fedoras,talking about what you are drinking in a 2 hour podcast,bragging about talking to Scott Boras, a moving on to a big position with a big league team, not a shitty “too much travel, no pay, and shitting in a McDonalds” scouting job.

    I enjoyed the musical introduction. But it was very silly.

    Generally excellent, but wildly deficient in Raggaeton Horn.

    Finally the dominant sports bar masculinity that Fangraphs has been lacking! I especially enjoyed learning of Kiley’s flight from privilege into selective internships, and his church trip to the Dominican!
