After a tumultuous week and an awful losing skid during the road trip, the Royals bounced back with some strong pitching and a couple wins heading into a homestand.
On top of that, they made a big change to the roster, committing to Whit Merrifield full time and designating Omar Infante for assignment.
We discussed the pitching of Danny Duffy and Yordano Ventura, plus the approaches of Merrifield and Cheslor Cuthbert. Finally, we looked at the implications of the Royals stark home and road splits, as inspired by Darin Watson at BP Kansas City.
