EP4: John Ely (Great Falls Voyagers Pitching Coach)

For the fourth episode of The Great Chicago Rebuild Podcast, Logan and Alex are joined by former third-round pick of the Chicago White Sox (2007), member of the Los Angeles Dodgers for a few years and current Great Falls Voyagers Pitching Coach, John Ely (interview begins at the 12:45 mark).

We discuss:

  • What the draft process is like
  • The organization’s approach to pitching development
  • Sleeper prospects in the Sox organization
  • Why John thinks Rick Renteria is the right manager for the rebuild
  • Why ex-teammates of his like Matt Kemp and Mookie Betts are thriving
  • How it felt when he gave up a home run to Bronson Arroyo

Plus:

  • Whether SI is right in thinking the Bears will go 4-12
  • NBA Finals/LeBron talk (sorry)
