Ballgame - Our Final Show
Back in March of 2011, Eric Hosmer and Sal Perez hadn't even played in Omaha yet, and we started a crazy little Royals podcast. Through controversial trades, odd managerial moves, slumps, surges, winning streaks, and a couple of playoff appearances, we've been here to discuss it all, culminating in a World Series and the following rebuild.This is our final episode. All things must end, and this seems the right time. With an ownership change ahead, a new manager, and a new wave of players in the pipeline, we're stepping away leaving behind 8 years and 9 seasons. It's been an absolute joy. We've always tried to do our show our way and the things we've been able to do and people we've been able to meet ... it's been crazy. On behalf of our founder Troy Olsen, our incomparable host Jeff Herr, the kid in the back of the classroom throwing spitballs Chris Kamler, and myself: Thank you for listening. If you've been here since day one, my gosh, thanks for sticking with us. If you only just found us, I'm sorry for the rough timing...but we have plenty of past episodes online.For this episode, we invited Troy and Chris back to join us and just sat down and talked about the experience, our memories, our favorite guests and moments, and just had a lot of fun hanging out. There's not much in the way of Royals news, but we had a lot of fun and I hope you give it a listen. (ALSO: Should warn you that there is some cursing, as we just kinda let it go for this one.)If nothing else....here's the rundown of the episode if you want to bounce around:Open: Mike McCartney, the voice of Kauffman Stadium, reads a soliloquy we handed him sometime in maybe 2012.From there, it's the four of us talking about everything.At 1:30:15, a compilation of the moments we've covered during the run of the show: "Everyone's an MVP to Someone"1:35:30 - The Fake Ned Minute1:41:25 - an old Kelly's ad: "Barhopping"1:42:28 - another ad: "Spit Cup"1:44:30 - Compilation: "Royals Are The Champions:1:47:30 - Outtakes: "Kamler is summoned"1:47:49 - Outtakes: "A Great Opportunity!"1:48:15 - Outtakes: "Sponsorships"1:49:50 - The best tribute to baseball I can imagine: A.

Heading Home - 2019 Recap (Episode 148)
Every season during spring training, we make some predictions. Some are good, some are bad. Sometimes we're way off. But we always go back and check how we did at the end of the year. This year is no different.In this episode, we round third and head home as we wrap up our ninth Royals season of coverage. We have one more episode of reminiscing to do, so this is the last show where we provide share our thoughts about the 2019 Royals and what lies ahead for the team.Next week, we'll welcome back Chris Kamler (The Fake Ned) and Troy Olsen (Royalman) to get the band back together one more time, share some stories, and make a lot of inside jokes. The shenanigans will be high. The insight... maybe not as much. But we hope you join us anyway.It's been a joy to share our thoughts with you and we want to give our thanks to anyone out there who ever listened to us, downloaded a show, came out to an event, or ever sent us a message on Twitter or through email. This show has meant so much and for a bunch of talkers, it's ironically hard to find the right words to express our thanks. And as always...go Royals.Follow us!Twitter:http://twitter.com/KCBaseballVaulthttp://twitter.com/TheJeffReporthttp://twitter.com/michaelengelEmail us!KansasCityBaseballVault@gmail.com
Yosted (Episode 147)
After much speculation, Ned Yost has announced that he's retiring at the end of the season. He's been an interesting manager to follow...with some conflicting feelings. We discuss the dichotomy and Yost's legacy and impact on the current Royals, the past Royals, and most importantly, the champion Royals.He will have a special place in Royals history after two pennants and the most wins in franchise history, but he wasn't always everyone's favorite.We also brought up a few anniversaries occurring this week involving another retirement and some of the best Royals memories we have.And to wrap up, we discussed revelations from Danny Duffy about anxiety, depression, and panic attacks as detailed in Sam McDowell's story in the Kansas City Star.Follow us!Twitter:http://twitter.com/KCBaseballVaulthttp://twitter.com/TheJeffReporthttp://twitter.com/michaelengelEmail us!KansasCityBaseballVault@gmail.com
