Ben and Carlos talk about the increased stolen base totals in the lower levels of the minors, and talk about whether or not rule changes incentivizing the steal would be good for the game. After that the two talk about "prospect hype" and how the notoriety of players can affect the way we think about them—whether we realize it or not. Among those prospects with no shortage of hype, they explain what's going on right now with Jasson Dominguez and discuss the draft stock of Jack Leiter and Kumar Rocker. This episode is full of interesting listener questions, including whether or not Todd Helton belongs in the Hall of Fame, what the two think about 2022 high school shortstop Termarr Johnson, how Pirates righthander Roansy Contreras has excited us so far this season, how throwing ability is evaluated and more.
