    The Vance Honeycutt Conundrum & A Few Late Draft Risers

    The Vance Honeycutt Conundrum & A Few Late Draft Risers

    Peter and Carlos hop on the BA draft podcast to talk about the prospects to know in the college world series. How does this year’s field compare to a fantastic 2023 group and how much is there for a player like UNC’s Vance Honeycutt to gain or lose on the sport’s biggest stage? The two talk through why Honeycutt’s profile is so tricky, and think through the player development challenges that his hit tool questions create. After that the two talk through a few other CWS prospects, wonder how Braden Montgomery’s injury affects his stock (if it does at all) and talk about a pair of late-season draft risers to know—one high school shortstop and one college shortstop.

College Podcast

Great analysis and insight on college baseball. It is a must listen for college baseball fans. The one thing I would recommend is improving audio quality and not allowing the dog barking to interfere with the analysis. Great pod!

Lodiarmy ,

Great content but..

You all have great content and I love BA. Amazing shows.

One call out is sound quality, it makes some of the shoes incredibly hard to listen to and I hate missing your shoes but please, please, please work on audio quality.

Terrible content

The content lacks quality and they prolong the podcast by repeating things over and over again. Absolutely horrible analysis and they act like they know their stuff but it’s the opposite. Don’t waste your time with this one and don’t subscribe to their site because more of the same is there.

To the host and others who contribute to it: don’t waste people’s time with irrelevant content. Don’t do a podcast if you are not going to put effort into it.
