It’s a special Thanksgiving episode as Jason and I take plenty of listener email and then talk about award voting and the intrigue of the Derek Jeter negotiations with the Yankees. Then we get prospect heavy with a discussion of the recently released Royals and Nationals Top 11s and a side argument on Strasburg vs. Harper. Then we stay Royals-heavy with special guest Rany Jazayerli on the future of the team and the rumors surrounding a potential Zack Greinke deal. Then, what’s a holiday without family, so my mother makes a special return to discuss Thanksgiving while doling out advice on how to cook turkey to go with an extended discussion on Jason’s social calendar. Then it’s the usual with what we are drinking, more cooking, and Jason’s mental state. Happy holidays everyone.
