Everyone loves prospects. It's just science. Chris St. John developed a system to project them. The system is named after a prospect. Because everyone loves prospects.

On this episode of The Shift, Beyond the Box Score writer Chris St. John joins Stu and Bryan for a talk about JAVIER -- Chris's new system for prospect projections. The talk ranges from how the system is built, to the impetus for the project (he's in the image above), to some of the system's favorite prospects, like Red Sox rookie Mookie Betts and the recently-traded Taylor Lindsey. If you like projection systems, prospects, or podcasts where Bryan generally keeps his mouth shut, this is the podcast for you!
