Mellinger podcast: Chiefs’ Kelce, weird MLB rules + KC Royals pitching coach Cal Eldred

·1 min read

This may sound hyperbolic, but I don’t think we’ve ever seen an athlete transform more completely in Kansas City than Travis Kelce. The top of the show explains why.

Then we do questions on MLB’s weird plan on enforcing foreign substances, Hunter Dozier and Jorge Soler struggling, why crowds have been relatively small, and the weirdest place I’ve ever seen a fight.

The bonus section is with someone I know a lot of you have wanted to hear from: Royals pitching coach Cal Eldred.

Please listen to new episodes every Friday on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts.
