As originally described here, Rumor Royalty is an MLBTR series where I name the one journalist for each team who has done the most for us hot stove junkies. If the writer is up for it, I ask that person questions for publication on the site. You can see all of the entries in the series here.
I’d like to honor Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star as the best source for Royals hot stove buzz. Here’s a link to the paper’s Royals page. Bob was kind enough to answer four questions for MLBTR. I’ll run them separately over the next few days.
