Royals Review Radio: The surprisingly active trade deadline episode

We have a deal! Two, in fact!

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Our sources say Max Rieper, Matthew LaMar, and Shaun Newkirk will be discussing what the Royals did and did not do at the trade deadline. Plus we discuss how long the Royals will let Adalberto Mondesi struggle. Among the topics we discuss:

What did the Royals get in Edward Oliveras and how does the future outfield look?

Why did Brett Phillips never get more of a shot?

What will Lucius Fox’s role be with the organization?

How long will the Royals ride with Adalberto Mondesi?

Should the Royals have tried to trade Whit Merrifield?

Why was the trade deadline so busy?

Here are links to some of the things we discussed
