Royalman Report 10/23/2011: Character Issues


The Royalman Report, LIVE Sundays at 7 pm CST

There was quite a bit to discuss this week on the Royalman Report, and to help us cover everything, we welcomed Clint Scoles of Pinetar Press back as our guest in the third segment.

Clint had been down in Arizona observing Royals prospects in the instructional league as well as Arizona Fall League play. We discussed Christian Colon, Wil Myers, Yem Prades, Bubba Starling and more.

We also touched on a discussion about how much a player’s character might matter in scouting and drafting, as well as how age might play into such a discussion. We also talked about Johnny Giavotella‘s hip surgery and what it means down the line, what if the Royals made the World Series, what kind of moves might go on in Major League Baseball – in short, we talked about a little bit of everything.

Also there was a new Fake Ned Minute as well as an appearance by iPhone’s Siri. Sort of.

Next week, we have a special guest as Bob Kendrick, president of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, will join us to discuss the approaching celebration of Buck O’Neil’s 100th birthday.
