one of my six “Dispatches From Kansas City,” I described a scene in which Marlins outfielder Logan Morrison approached me during the All-Star media day in search of Royals legend George Brett.
I wasn’t much help and mostly just stood there stupefied, but my exchange with LoMo apparently made the cut for the second episode of Showtime’s “The Franchise,” which airs tonight at 10 p.m. ET.
So look for a befuddled dude carrying an NBC laptop bag. And catch all the other in-depth action. Here’s a preview

Former Orioles outfielder
Nolan Reimold has retired, Michael Pfaff — president of the Long Island Ducks — announced on Twitter on Sunday.
Reimold, 33, was hitting .238/.359/.397 in 78 plate appearances with the Ducks. He was coming off of a disappointing 2016 campaign as a reserve outfielder with the O’s, finishing with a .664 OPS.
Over parts of eight seasons in the majors, Reimold hit .246/.323/.422 with 56 home runs and 174 RBI.
Mike Trout sprained his left thumb and had to leave Sunday’s game against the Marlins. He underwent an X-ray, which revealed no fracture, but he is set to have an MRI on Monday for further evaluation, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.
Trout went 0-for-2 with a walk before exiting. The reigning AL MVP is batting .337/.461/.742 with 16 home runs, 36 RBI, 36 runs scored, and 10 stolen bases in 206 plate appearances this season. Needless to say, losing him for any amount of time would be a devastating loss for the Angels, who are 26-27 and tied for second place in the AL West.
