Royals Review Radio: The Batflip Episode

Plus we talk about the top prospects in the system

Max Rieper, Shaun Newkirk, and Matthew LaMar get together to flip some bats and talk about grown men throwing baseballs at each other’s butts. We also talk about the rejuvenated Alex Gordon and talk Royals prospects.

Among the topics we discuss:

Was Brad Keller wrong to plunk Tim Anderson?

Are batflips here to stay and will we ever phase out intentionally hitting batters?

Could Alex Gordon be playing well enough to return next year?

Are home runs and strikeouts ruining baseball?

Who is the best prospect in the Royals’ system.

Who is a sleeper Royals prospect to keep an eye on?

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

A breakdown of the Tim Anderson/Brad Keller incident.

Matthew LaMar’s column about how intentionally hitting batters is infantile.

Shaun Newkirk’s top 20 prospect list.
