Ben and Carlos talk about the college pitching heavy Royals 2018 draft class and how that group recently accomplished an impressive feat. The two then discuss the #FairBall protest over the weekend and talk a bit about the depressing state of minor league pay and whether or not pitch clocks are effective without being disruptive to the game. After that, the two talk about a recent story about Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman and his play at all costs mentality and how they might create issues before diving into an extended mailbag segment with plenty of listener questions.
