The entire crew of The Ballgame was together to discuss or commiserate the state of the current 2013 Royals. But this was a no-grumbling zone for the hour.  We spoke with former Royals outfielder Brian McRae about his time growing up in the Royals clubhouse with his father Hal. We also talked to him about his very opinionated thoughts on what to do to fix the current Royals.  We ended the show each giving our ideas on how to take the Royals, who went from first to last – back to first again.
