"A Podcast To Be Named Later"

Host: Chris Mitchell @CJMitch73
Guest: Brandon C Williams

The Mets have fallen behind the Miami Marlins in the NL East while the Pirates continue to tumble in the Central. Freddie Freeman is making a case for a trade in spite of a large contract and the fact that he is the only face that franchises fans know and Brandon Belt is emerging as the power bat that believers thought was in there and it couldn't be more important for the Giants who will be without Hunter Pence (unless they can swing a deal for Ryan Braun as rumored) for a long time. We discuss all of those subjects along with Week #11's News & Notes and "Short Dog's Rant" about the in coming National League Prospects of note.  You can also find a link to this Podcast at MinorLeagueBall . com
