Max Rieper, Shaun Newkirk, and Alex Duvall are all at home, social distancing, but still yearning for baseball. In this episode, we talk about some of the changes owners and players have agreed to in a shortened season, plus we try to build our dream Royals rotation. Among the issues we discuss:
How will a shortened draft affect the Royals?
When will baseball start?
Should baseball experiment with the post-season this year?
What Royals players could benefit from expanded rosters?
What should we expect from Trevor Rosenthal this year?
Here are links to some of the things we talked about:
Jeff Passan’s article on the deal between owners and players on the shortened season.
