This week on the Kansas City Baseball Vault, we jumped right into the future of Royals baseball, welcoming Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus and ESPN.com and discussing Wil Myers, Jake Odorizzi and their potential to reach the big leagues this year, Eric Hosmer‘s slumps, Mike Montgomery‘s trouble, Mike Moustakas‘s success and a few other prospects down the pipe. Goldstein and the Baseball Prospectus crew will be in Kansas City July 8 for an All-Star Weekend conference at the Negro League Baseball Museum where the KC Baseball Vault team will be co-panelists.

We also talked with former Kansas City Athletic Joe Rudi. The three time All Star and Gold Glove winner talked about coming up through the minors, dealing with Charlie Finley, and world championships.

Jeff Logan discussed upcoming events from the Kansas City Baseball Historical Society, including the monthly meeting this May 24 at the Westport Flea Market and the upcoming Kansas City A’s reunion on June 8. We also gave away Kansas City T-Bones tickets to three lucky callers in our weekly trivia contest.

We’ll be back next week with more discussion of Kansas City baseball, past, present and future on ESPN 1510 Thursday at 6 p.m. CST.
