Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus on a Special Royalman Report


Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus was generous enough to spend an hour with us discussing the Royals farm system, the impact of the new CBA, Jeff Francoeur and the development of prospects and how to judge them.

We also covered Mike Montgomery‘s chances of success, why Joakim Soria won’t be a starter, Clint Robinson‘s ominous fate, Cheslor Cuthbert, Yeonis Cespedes, Latin American scouting – basically, we cover a lot in the hour.

It’s a different format than usual, as we tried out a new studio and cut out the breaks. What you get is an hour of uninterrupted discussion with one of the best-known baseball writers around. Follow him at @Kevin_Goldstein on Twitter.
