I'll be the first to admit that I'm not the worlds biggest baseball fan. Not even the biggest baseball guy in Kansas. Okay, I see baseball as a necessary evil between the end of basketball and the beginning of football. BUT, something seems different this spring. I'm actually excited to see what the Royals can do.
Dayton Moore has been given the okay to spend some money, and KC has made some good off-season acquisitions (particularly Jacobs and Crisp). I don't expect a pennant, or even an AL Central title, but I do expect this team to be close to .500 if not above it. Sure, it will take Meche, Greinke, and Soria to be really, REALLY good. It's not out of the question though. And even if I don't really look forward to the boys of summer... I'll still enjoy them since we're here.
