George Bissell, Mike Gianella and Bret Sayre of Baseball Prospectus discuss the state of the position at first base. Which is more likely for Paul Goldschmidt: a rebound in home runs or stolen base regression (5:00), is Joey Votto being undervalued (9:00), Miguel Cabrera or Anthony Rizzo (15:00), the compelling case against Freddie Freeman in the second round (16:00), Edwin Encarnacion in Cleveland (21:50), a Hanley Ramirez hot take (23:00), the value of steals and realistic expectations for Wil Myers (27:30), is the best of Jose Abreu still ahead (32:00), three star options Carlos Santana, Victor Martinez, Eric Hosmer and Chris Davis (34:00), why Tommy Joseph has a realistic shot at 30 home runs (46:00), and finally potential impacts from prospects Dan Vogelbach, Josh Bell, and Cody Bellinger (51:00).
