AUDIO: Interview with MLB.com’s Jonathan Mayo
It was a nice surprise to find Jonathan Mayo, the top minor league writer for MLB.com, at JetBlue Park yesterday afternoon. He was kind enough to give me about 10 minutes of his time to talk all things Red Sox minor leagues.
Jonathan had some interesting insights on Bryce Brentz, Will Middlebrooks, Jose Iglesias, and Ryan Lavarnway. We also talked about how stacked the Sox system is offensively and how the club’s pitching prospects aren’t quite as deep. You can listen to the interview in its entirety by using the embedded audio player above.
Today should be a busy day for me. I’m leaving my hotel in Ft. Myers around 11:45 a.m. and will travel about 40 minutes north to Port Charlotte to watch the 1:00 first pitch between the PawSox and the Durham Bulls (Tampa Bay). Like yesterday, I’ll be tweeting live updates and the occasional photo (where the players look like they’re about a mile away).
After the game, it’s back to Ft. Myers to watch the Red Sox 7:05 p.m. start against Toronto. It promises to be a long – but fun – day. My hope is to update the blog once I’m back at JetBlue following the PawSox game.
I’ll chat with you then.
