has changed everything for me. Before its release DRA on Wednesday, I lived in a run-down house with two filthy roommates, my car was a rusty mess with a broken driver-side mirror, and I was a senior in college set to graduate into a weak job market with nothing but a journalism degree.

The Baseball Prospectus Prospect Team is proud to announce the launch of a new prospect-themed podcast. Raw Projection will be a lively, spirited debate on all aspects of the prospect landscape to be broadcast weekly alongside the current line of BP podcasts. This new endeavor will include two teams of hosts, alternating weeks to give listeners a fresh perspective in each episode. The first team will include
Tucker Blair, Mauricio Rubio, Jr., and CJ Wittmann and the second team will include Chris Mellen and Jeff Moore. Each team will offer a unique sound and feel while keeping you up to speed on the prospect world, discussing reports, topics and events from around the minors, and generally causing trouble. Episodes will also include guest appearances from the rest of the prospect team as well as guests from within the baseball world.
This will truly be a group effort, highlighting our strength as a team covering the prospect world and keeping you entertained in the process.

There Is No Offseason is a podcast that focuses exclusively on dynasty and long-term keeper formats. We talk major leagues, minor leagues and we never miss an opportunity to take a jab at Craig. The Nationals did something amazing two nights ago. Matt Williams already had a better story to tell, though.
The Nationals’ comeback against the Braves Tuesday night will be remembered as a turning point in their season, if their season ends up being worth remembering. They entered the night at 7-13, and with their ace sidelined by a thumb injury, they asked rookie
to begin the process of turning things around. Cole got shelled, surrendering nine hits and nine runs in two innings of work, a mess that got worse than it needed to be because of Cole’s own error in the field. Atlanta led 9-1 after two innings and 10-2 after four. The Nationals stormed back. A fielding error opened the door to a four-run fifth inning, and ultimately, Washington chased Braves ace A.J. Cole with two outs in the sixth inning, down by the more manageable score of 10-7. The Braves led 12-10 after eight, but Julio Teheran —facing the team who pays the bulk of his salary, the team who cut him outright last summer—came up with a second huge hit (a three-run homer), and Dan Uggla bravely held off Atlanta in the bottom of the ninth.
