Podcast: Back to the Future

January 26th, 2022

With Tuesday's announcement of David Ortiz being voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, Jim Callis, Jason Ratliff and Jonathan Mayo look back at what Ortiz was like as a prospect and young player. Nationals senior advisor Dave Jauss, who was a Red Sox advance scout and advocated for Boston to sign Ortiz after the Twins released him, joins the conversation to provide valuable insight.

After a stroll down memory lane and exploring Big Papi's beginnings, the trio went back to looking at the future -- taking an in-depth look at prospects we'll be talking about in 2024 as well as the top hitter and pitcher for the 2023 Draft class who will be playing in the PDP League this summer.

The conversation concludes with the gang answering listener questions in an extended mailbag segment.
