The Royals may not have a winner on the field in the big leagues, but they certainly have them in the minors. Max Rieper, Shaun Newkirk, and Alex Duvall celebrate the four championships won by Royals’ minor league teams this year, and review their seasons. Plus we talk to Clint Scoles of Royals Academy for his take on the minor league system. Among the topics we discuss:
What do we make of the minor league championships?
Who were the top performers down on the farm this year?
What is the state of the farm system?
Who are some under-the-radar prospects that improved their stock with the Royals?
Here are links to some of the things we talked about:
