Only a few weeks of evidence is available, but what a stretch for the Royals' rotation. With Carlos Hernandez and Daniel Lynch leading the way, they've won seven of eight and their starters are 5-0 in that run. On this episode of our daily SportsBeat KC podcast, which originated as SportsBeat Live stream Tuesday morning, beat writer Lynn Worthy and columnists Sam Mellinger and Vahe Gregorian project what this means for the future. And, speaking of next season, where will Nicky Lopez, Whit Merrifield, Adalberto Mondesi and Bobby Witt Jr. find themselves on the diamond in 2022? Plenty of flexibility there. Finally, Salvador Perez is having a career year when it seems his trajectory should be headed in a different direction.

While it may just be a bunch of sore losers venting, it sure was fun to watch UT President Jay Hartzell just get skewered at a public hearing in Texas. AD's , the commish and politicians took turns mocking the university and it's wildly underperforming football program. There was also some real news we address. Royals GM Dayton Moore says he's considering his best player, Adelberto Mondesi, to be a bench player going forward as he builds next year's team. I guess that means Bobby Witt Jr is the new starting shortstop unless Mondesi somehow is healthy and available. This is really odd. Mayor Q takes another shot at KKHI on Monday and I'm not responding back. He slept all night and was still hurt in the morning? Pretty sure we tapped into something on a typical liberal politician that can't believe somebody would criticize his policies. And Children's Mercy is taking steps to respond to fake news reports that they are overrun with Covid kids. We mentioned this first a couple weeks ago and local, liberal media still got the story wrong. No surprise.
