Burk drills Fuson, Towers in Portland

Portland Beavers broadcaster Rich Burk welcomed Grady Fuson, the Padres' vice president of scouting and player development, and Kevin Towers, the general manager of San Diego, into the booth. He didn't waste that time, drilling each in turn on the current status of prospects and the big league club.

Burk has been the broadcaster in Portland since 1995 and has a tremendous beat on the state of the Padres' system. He used that insight on Saturday, asking Fuson and Towers many questions and getting some intriguing answers.
