Exclusive: The text conversation between Eric Hosmer and Ned Yost

We get to the truth

MLB: Arizona Diamondbacks at Kansas City Royals Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

Eric Hosmer has signed with the Padres, but not without a little bit of controversy. Royals fans were a bit miffed when Royals manager Ned Yost asserted that Hosmer never contacted him this winter, not even when Yost was on his “death bed” following his accident where he broke his hip over the winter. Hosmer disputes that notion, asserting he texted Yost several times.

“Well, first of all, I’ll question his ability to use a cell phone, because he said I hadn’t reached out to him, and I’ve got the text messages on my phone that have conversations with us,” Hosmer said with a chuckle.

It was a “he-said, he-said” situation, until now. Here at Royals Review we have exclusively obtained the text conversation between Eric Hosmer and Ned Yost, and after consulting our lawyers (which are just bits and pieces of legal advice given by our readers), we have decided to publish those texts for the public. Read the texts yourself and decide how you feel about Eric Hosmer.
