Royals Review Radio

Co-hosts Max Rieper and Shaun Newkirk aren’t nearly fast enough to be on the Royals, but they’re back to discuss the Royals’ off-season so far. In this episode, we cover off-season moves and discuss:

  • The signing of Billy Hamilton, Terrance Gore, and Chris Owings and doubling-down on speed
  • Rule 5 acquisitions Sam McWilliams and Chris Ellis and losing Elvis Luciano
  • Who lands Bryce Harper and Manny Machado?
  • What are the Indians up to?
  • Is the trade market for second basemen soft?

Here are links to some of the things we talked about:
