The Royals found a replacement for Salvador Perez and did some juggling of the pitching staff as Opening Day approaches.
After catching up on the news of the day, we made some predictions. Using Baseball Prospectus's PECOTA projections, we picked a few players and stats and guessed at if a player would surpass or fall short of the mark. It's one of our favorite shows to record every year, and this time was no exception.
Hear our thoughts on Adalberto Mondesi, Brad Keller, Whit Merrifield, Jakob Junis, and more.
And also, a programming note...at the top of the show we made the announcement that the 2019 season will be the final season of the Kansas City Baseball Vault podcast. We started this ride in March of 2011, but the time comes for everyone. We'll spend 2019 catching up with old friends and going out having a blast talking baseball. We plan on doing a few events this year to celebrate, and keep an eye on our Twitter account for information about such gatherings.
