In the wake of the Miguel Cabrera vs. Mike Trout debate, Jeff and Mike responded to the apparent eyes vs. numbers argument put forth by Mitch Albom. Spoiler: Neither were very pleased with Albom’s characterization of the sides of the debate. We also talked about some of the Royals recent moves, including the signing of Brandon Wood and how the former prospect might fit within the organization, as well as the trades of Tommy Hottovy and Jeremy Jeffress. Additionally, we talked about Joakim Soria and bidding wars, the Royals and player development and reclamation projects, and then brought up some trade ideas – including offering opinions on the infamous Jeffrey Loria fire sale trade between the Marlins and Blue Jays last week.
