Some of the best writing on deadline ever for the podcast was not done by either of its hosts but two fans of the Best Podcast in Baseball. Annalyse Crowdus and Rob Krosley delivered on the Christmas Carol challenge, and their work, 'Baby, It's Podcast Time,' warms a year-end edition of the BPIB that involves three deep dives into rankings: Prospects, Hall of Fame candidates, and Holiday Songs. St. Louis Post-Dispatch baseball writer Derrick Goold details the Cardinals' Top 10 prospects and how he ranked each of the rising talents in the system. StlToday.com and Post-Dispatch columnist Benjamin Hochman challenges how Goold works on his Hall of Fame ballot, and then it's Hochman's turn to face the heat. He and BPIB listeners rank the holiday tunes before Goold reveals his new No. 1. A special thanks to all who contributed to this episode -- and the fourth year of BPIB. Onward to 2017.
