The Royalman Report – 8/21/11: Pots o’ Gold – Jeff Francoeur, Bubba Starling


The Royalman Report, LIVE Sundays at 7 pm CST

Between Jeff Francoeur‘s contract extension and the chaos of the draft pick signing deadline, there was plenty to discuss in this week’s Royalman Report (brought to you by Kelly’s Westport Inn).

Troy was out of the studio so I took the reins and was joined by Chris Kamler – @fakenedyost to the Twitter-inclined.

We talked about the signing deadline and the makeup of the Royals minor leagues with Clint Scoles of Pine Tar Press focusing on the lower levels and international signings.

For previous listeners, you’ll notice a slight change in format, as we’ve scrapped music during the breaks in order to revisit past interviews with personalities from the Royals organization and other baseball folks.  This week, Troy’s interview with Billy Butler at the HyVee signing last week is included as well as a segment of his interview with Omaha’s announcer Mark Nasser.
