Carlos and Peter hop on the show to talk through some of the early Cape Cod League standouts that Peter has seen so far this summer and break down the state of the 2024 draft class now that we’re less than two weeks from draft day. The two also talk about the chaotic nature of college baseball in the middle of transfer portal season, talk about NIL implications on the sport, talk through draft strategy ideas and then finish the show with some talk about college catching and shortstop profiles in the class.
