Sometimes it’s a good idea to just dive in without a plan and see what happens, and that’s what we did this week. There was plenty to discuss about the Royals and we tried to get everything in from clubhouse leadership to Jeff Francoeur‘s role. We also talked about the offense’s troubles, focusing on Mike Moustakas and Eric Hosmer. We brought up questions about sending players down to make adjustments, which lead to talking about Johnny Giavotella versus Chris Getz.
Then we covered the minor leagues, checking in on some of the big name players, marveling that Adalberto Mondesi wants to be called Raul (“Doesn’t that make three Raul Mondesis?”) and wondering about Jason Adam‘s struggles in Double A. We also had to confront Bubba Starling‘s early troubles.
