Royalman Report 8/5: Dog Days of Summer and Yuniesky Betancourt’s DFA


Following a sweep-saving, extra-innings win by the Royals over the Rangers witnessed by the Royalmen from a Kauffman Stadium suite, we talked about Ned Yost’s ultamatum and the DFA’ing of Yuniesky Betancourt and the firing of Doug Sisson. Seems that the entire team is fixed now, right? Might’ve been a bit of sarcasm there. Regardless, we talked about it all and caught up with the rest of the minor leagues and reset several other storylines around the team.

Don’t forget the Royalman Report is on every Sunday at 7 and catch our new show, The Kansas City Baseball Vault on ESPN 1510 AM Thursday’s at 6.
