About The Author

Clint Scoles

I grew up on the mean gravel roads of Iowa where I started my love for baseball from the age of 2. George Brett and the voice of Denny Matthews deepened my love even more for the Royals as my father and I spent summers listening to the team on our deck or in the car on our way to or from my little league and high school games. Sports was always the common bond that my father and I enjoyed and the Royals were in the center of that. I currently live in La Vista with my wife, two sons, two dogs and a pair of gross cats where we are grinding through until we can move somewhere warm when we retire. I own Casino Cab Company and Bluffs Affordable Auto Repair in Council Bluffs trying to build my 1% empire. If you are in the area you can find me at Omaha Storm Chasers games on most nights or just follow me on twitter @ClintScoles.

    Suggestion for next week’s podcast…Is it time to talk about the Royals having 25 pitchers and only 15 position players on the 40 man roster. Assume it will change but what pitchers go to make room for position players if DM is truly looking for a utility infielder and outfielder? Assuming the Royals carry 13 pitchers as Ned likes, there will only be 3 position players on the 40 man roster and not on the ML roster…and none of those is Wil Myers.

    Some of my thoughts…

    The Royals really don’t need much of a bench since Ned doesn’t use his bench for situational hitting, late inning defense or resting starters anyway.

    So why waste money on a free agent who will just get frustrated and never seeing the grass during a game (think Betancourt).

    I would prefer to see Seratelli get a chance at one of the utility positions. He can play pretty much everywhere but short and might just hit decent like Abreu and Falu did. And will cost the major league minimum to play 20 games a year.

    The other utility role (besides Hayes at catcher) can go to Falu or Abreu until Colon is ready to be called up mid year.

    And Gordon and Butler can both back up 1st base.

    This means the bench only costs $1.6M for 3 players. And if Ned has a light bulb moment and decides he can live with 12 pitchers, can keep Dyson to back up the outfield until Myers arrives.

    Yes, I know there is not much power there, but who cares if they are only going to play 15 or 20 games a year.

    Anyway, thought it might be worth a discussion or two on a future podcast.
