So Jeff and Mike winged it, talking about player development, run scoring approaches, buying or selling at the deadline, the lineage of Royals GMs, and what kind of hope might remain for 2014.
We’ve enjoyed the support of Kelly’s Westport Inn for years and we’re now also glad to partner with Baseball-Reference.com and their Play Index service for the near future. Help support the show by hopping over to Baseball-Reference.com and signing up for the Play Index by using promo code “Royals” to save $6 off the regular yearly price of $36 – it’s a great tool for detailed baseball stat research, and something we play around with every day.
If you find any great Royals stat trivia or trends using the Play Index or Baseball-Reference, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Near the end of July, we’ll give away copies of Willie Mays Aikens’ book “Safe At Home” to three listeners. I’m also adding a copy of “The Art of Scouting” to the contest.
And visit Royalspodcast.com for all the latest shows by and for Royals fans.
