Grew up on the streets of Overland Park...played my high school ball at Shawnee Mission North before playing college ball in Riverside, CA. I graduated from an original Big 8 school and love this great city. My favorite player as a kid was Frank Tanana and I thought U.L Washington was a cool MOFO

    I appreciate it…the great thing about moving from the broadcast booth to this is that I think it allowed me the opportunity to meet a lot of baseball people. My knowledge of Myers and many of these guys goes back to before some of them were even drafted….certainly when they sign with the Royals the relationship begins. Either their family members, friends, or high school coach reached out at some point or the player does on their own.

    One thing I know is that the players enjoy our site…they like the coverage we give them so they are very good to us.

    Also, from my time with the Royals I have developed a name basis relationship with most in the front office. I talked to them often and to answer your question one of them and myself discussed Wil Myers for close to an hour earlier this week….

    They know that this would be a move that will hurt ….I think it is very much a split camp on if they should do this….so, it will be very interesting to find out if Wil Myers will be a Royal or wear the uniform of another major league club when he debuts

    Hey Greg – y’all mentioned in the Justin Trapp podcast you felt like this was the best post ever on PTP. I would have to emphatically AGREE! Some incredible insight. I love all the quotes and you got his mom! Great job! Now if you could please forward this to Dayton and let him know what exactly he would be giving up for a two-year lease on Shields or Lester… Just say no, Dayton!
