End of An Era (BP Kansas City Episode 89)

Well Eric Hosmer has made it official and his signing with the San Diego Padres moves the Royals into a true period of transition.

We discussed his new contract and how it works for him and how the Royals come away with pretty good compensation, too. The next rebuild is underway and 2018 becomes intriguing to see who can stick on the big league roster, as well as to see who emerges from the minor leagues. The Royals have a lot of draft picks as well. The team’s record…now that might be a little rough.

Along with softening the blow of that loss, we take a big picture view of the organization and why it shouldn’t be another 30 years until the next success. Wrapping up, Mike shared a Dayton Moore travel story.
