    Futures Focus - Episode 14, Rays Top 50 Prospects w/Jake Wiener & Bailey Srebnik

    Scott Greene (@Scotty_Ballgame) and Jake Berry (@berrys_baseball) are back with another episode of Prospects1500's Futures Focus. We still don't have any baseball as the COVID-19 pandemic and its restrictions have pretty much halted all sports in the United States, but we do have baseball prospects and fantasy baseball to talk about! Scott & Jake welcome Jake Wiener (@GatorSosa) and Bailey Srebnik (@FsuBailey12) to the podcast to talk all about the Tampa Bay Rays Top 50 prospects. It's definitely one of the best, if not THE best, farm systems in baseball. Then Scott & Jake touch on #ChappysProspectsChallenge, the KBO fantasy league, what a Historical Seasons Roto draft is all about, and 2020 Bowman 1st Edition baseball cards. Enjoy the episode!

    You can see the entire Chappy's Prospect Challenge draft (16 owners, 50 rounds, 800 total prospects) at this link: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/13UiP51Y3pjDiICmKjPBUssWD-dd26YmfLvsP_IyNBXc/edit?usp=sharing
