Bob Osgood (@BobOsgood15) and Shelly Verougstraete (@shellyv_643) are here to discuss the 2021 MLB Draft and what a crazy draft it was. In the last episode, we had "our guys" that we wanted the Red Sox to pick at #4 but as luck would have it, our overall number one player was still available at number 4. We still cannot believe we were able to draft Marcelo Mayer at four! The Sox were able to snag some really great talent throughout the draft and we discuss some players to keep your eyes on.

Not to bury the lede but Jaren Duran was set to make his debut against the New York Yankees before a COVID outbreak canceled the Thursday night game. It was not only Duran that was making he way back to Fenway. Tanner Houck is set to begin his season in the bullpen before transitioning to a starter's role going forward.

Also, Chris Sale and Connor Seabold made rehab starts; their first starts since their injuries. Whew, so much has happened in one week.
