8:30 AM: Fact or Fluke?—The "Would You Rather" Edition
This exciting new panel expands upon our popular Fact or Fluke format, and devotes an entire session to player groups. We ask our panel to evaluate similar surprising performances from 2017 with an eye towards which player would they prefer to roster in 2018.

10:00 AM: Keynote Address
Makeup: The Next Frontier in Player Evaluation 

Brad Kullman, a former GM and MLB front office member, will present a baseball-specific version of the material in his recent book Hardwired for Life. He details how each person is hardwired from birth to have certain tendencies and proficiencies that impact the way in which we each think, behave, and perform. Kullman reveals a new method for quantifying player "makeup" and provides state-of-the-art insight that will enable fantasy owners to compile a roster full of "winners"! 

11:00 AM: Fall Stars Scout Q&A 
Got a question about Saturday evening's Fall Stars Game or the process of scouting in general? Ask our panel, which will include Kimball Crossley (Toronto Blue Jays) among other guests.
MODERATOR: Brian Walton, Mastersball.com

11:30 AM: Open Forum Q&A 
Here's your final chance to pick the brains of all of our speakers. Toss out the names of players you'd like their opinion on. Challenge them to reveal their own secrets. No rules, no limits, just 40 minutes of hard data, coming at you fast and furious.
