Ep. 60: Prospect Conflicts and Baseball Punk

The Ringer's Ben Lindbergh and Michael Baumann talk to Eric Longenhagen and Chris Mitchell from FanGraphs about the differences between the site's scouting-based and stats-based top-prospect lists and the highly ranked players who appear on the former but not the latter (02:00). Then they bring on Evan October and Justin Safely from Isotopes Punk Rock Baseball Club to discuss the band's origin story and songwriting process (27:00), baseball's punk-rock cred (34:00), and the Isotopes' new single, "Legend of George Brett," and forthcoming album, '1994 World Series Champions' (43:30).
