Smoke and Mirrors (BP Kansas City Episode 56)

The Royals have hit a little better in May but Ned Yost is still working on how to jumpstart the offense.

So he went back to an old trick and put Alcides Escobar at leadoff. We talked about “Esky Magic” and why it’s silly if you’re taking it seriously.

After the break, we talked about the recent roster moves, primarily the decision to designate Christian Colon for assignment and his unique legacy with the Royals.
