Soon after completing the 2017 MLB draft, White Sox scouting director Nick Hostetler came on the podcast with Chuck Garfien and Ryan McGuffey to talk about what went on behind the scenes with the White Sox draft. Hostetler goes in-depth about his initial meeting with first round pick Jake Burger, he explains why 7th round pick Evan Skoug wants to get revenge against every team that passed him up, and he shares the character trait they went searching for in every pick. Hostetler also reveals what movie he saw the night before the draft to get him in the right frame of mind for the draft, if scouts actually lie to reporters when giving information about players, why the White Sox drafted Larry King's son and a whole lot more.
