We took some time off from podcasting, and the Royals took some time off at the trade deadline! Our Max Rieper, Shaun Newkirk and Hokius talk about what the Royals did and did not do at the trade deadline. Among the topics we discuss:
How did the Royals fare in the Jake Diekman trade?
Why weren’t the Royals more active at the trade deadline?
What do we make of Jorge Soler’s emergence as a home run threat?
Why won’t the Royals use the opener?
How are you supposed to read the names on the back of the Royals’ Players Weekend uniforms?
