Jason Kendall can add eavesdropping to his intangibles: Yesterday, Nick Wright of Radio 610 was interviewing top prospect Mike Moustakas.

Jason Kendall, apparently eavesdropping on the interview, went off on Wright. Will McDonald heard about it, and went off on Kendall and his brand of leadership: “Go oil your mitt somewhere and work on posting an OBP over .300 in your soul-crushing and needless final year with the Royals.” [RoyalsReview.com]
