On their 100th episode together, Jesse and Derek discuss the D-backs farm system ranking and how it has changed over the last year, a new MiLB initiative to honor the contributions of Black players in minor leagues and bring baseball to more communities, and why the Nationals needed to be the first team in baseball to open a sports book connected to their ballpark.


Derek Montilla, occasionally known as The Mayor of PHNX, has covered the Arizona Diamondbacks beat for over 10 seasons. He's a career .093 hitter as an amateur with more errors than runs scored, so everyone decided that the press box was a better fit. The Arizona native is a diehard fan of all Valley sports and can also be found roaming free ringside at local pro wrestling shows.
