That headline "An Exclusive Interview with Greg Holland" sounds pretty cool and if I was a Royals fan, I’d be sure to read this article. But in this case "exclusive interview" means I walked over to talk to Greg while all the other reporters were gathered around Paulo Orlando.

Royals manager Ned Yost says he still prefers a bullpen with defined roles, even as myriad injuries and a general cautiousness have resulted in a shuffling of roles for much of August. He expects to utilize more of Kansas City’s traditional bullpen gambit — Kelvin Herrera in the seventh, Wade Davis in the eighth, Greg Holland in the ninth — as the club pushes toward October.
