Salvy may have to take a hiatus from his Salvy’s Splashes this year as he will miss the entire season with a UCL injury. Our Max Rieper, Shaun Newkirk, and Matthew LaMar discuss his injury, and we also talk White Sox with Brett Ballantini of South Side Sox. Among the topics we discuss:
- Why didnt’ the White Sox land Bryce Harper or Manny Machado?
- How worried should Royals fans be about White Sox prospect Eloy Jimenez?
- Was Martin Maldonado a good signing for the Royals?
- Will Homer Bailey be in this rotation?
- Why can’t Matthew pronounce the word “milquetoast”?
- What do you expect out of Adalberto Mondesi this year?
- How could the Royals possibly be contenders?
Here are links to some of the things we talked about:
