The 40 Man Gauntlet (BP Kansas City Episode 119)

The Royals took aim at locking down their 40 man roster, purchasing the contracts of three pitchers, claiming one and designating another for assignment.

As they massage the roster, they also have some arbitration offers to consider. What will be the fate of Cheslor Cuthbert, Jesse Hahn, and Brian Flynn? Is new claim Conner Greene a good pickup? Hey, who’s this Arnaldo Hernandez fella? And did you say Ross Gload? What’s he got to do with these guys?(spoiler: nothing but we got distracted for a second)

Along with those decisions, we discussed the hiring of Mike Matheny and if he’s picking out furniture for Ned Yost’s current office or not (and who the alternative Managers-in-waiting might be).
