It's a combination of fun and serious this week. We begin with lots of prospect talk, as we walk through the Seattle Mariners Top 11 list and finish off our discussion of every team in baseball's minor league system with the final five teams. We couldn't have a show without talking about Yoenis Cespedes, so we discuss the video, what kind of player he really is, and then are joined by Dominican broadcaster Kevin Cabral, who is the voice you hear at the beginning of the show. Kevin talks about his involvement in the video, as well as some changes going on in the winter league there. From there, things get somber, as we discuss the Wilson Ramos kidnapping and are joined by pitcher Scott Drucker, a right-handed pitcher currently in Venezuela, who takes you inside the clubhouse on the night the news broke, and talks about security measure for players there. Then it's onto the goofy stuff with music, drinking and brushes with greatness. As always, we hope you enjoy.

Note: We do alert you to the presence of the occasional adult language and subject matter. Don't say we didn't warn you.
