This week, we talked about the blockbuster Danny Valencia deal, the Royals weekend success and a look at the playoff picture, and also brought up some trade targets and the likelihood of the Royals making a move.
We also answered your questions – questions about life, baseball, the Royals. Topics included Soda vs. Pop, backup catchers, team meetings, Twitter, and Sal Perez switching agents.
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.
