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.

    thanks a ton Clint. I liked reading this a lot. Reading you and others I knew most of these names but it is nice to read something so honest about what they probably are capable of doing. Not sure why I have never heard of Pedro Fernandez but will be looking out for him now! The Royals need to be signing as many of those Latin kids as they can, they strike gold at a pretty good rate.
