WalkOff Talk: Kansas City Royals Rumors and Notes [Podcast]


We’re ten episodes into this podcasting thing now. That’s almost more playing time than Johnny Giavotella.

This week’s episode is heavy on Royals rumors and AL Central news.

Welcome to Episode 10! Ben and Audra talk AL Central news (spoiler: it’s about Jeff Francoeur). The bulk of the show, though, is discussion around Royals trade/free agent rumors. First up is Kendrys Morales, a signing that would surely be followed (or preceded) by a Billy Butler trade. Then they discuss some of the rumored interest in Ervin Santana. The rumors segment ends with some more concrete Tanaka speculation and Royals starting pitching targets.

*BONUS* Audra serenades listeners with a very special song from her youth, and all the musical break selections are early 2000s throwback pop that should leave you feeling nostalgic for high school, or college, or elementary school, depending on how old you were in the early 2000s. Enjoy.
