Being too young for Brett, White, Rojas, McRae, I have to go with

Joe Randa, Mike Sweeney and Carlos Febles

Currently:

Tony Pena Jr. and Mark Teahen are my favorites.

Brett, white, Otis and Pinella... I saw the 1st game the Royals ever played and much like my love for the Chiefs I am a loyal fan to a fault sometimes :) Favorite managers were Herzog and Howser.

I got to see Brett play for a couple seasons when I was young and he was my favorite. I liked Beltran quite a bit when he was here, Jermaine Dye was good as well. Gordon and Butler now have the star power to be KC's superstars for along time.

I wish they woulda kept Dave Cone he had a very nice career :)...I am friends with his brother Dan and we used to party at his house ( used to be Saberhagans old house ) It was sweet. As a kid he could throw a dirt clod at about 120 mph lol scary chit. Anyone else used to have dirt clod fights? seems it always ended up with rocks and ppl getting hurt. I was so pissed when they traded Cone to the Mets :( very bad move

How could I forget to add Steve Busby to the pitching staff....D'OH!

And Chico Lind definitely goes on the butthead list.
Also on the butthead list:

Doug Bird for suckage,

This is my list too so I'll add a few others for shits and grins.

Buddy Biancalana - I liked him because he had a cool name. Plus he was part of our championship team.

Dick Drago- because he had a really cool name and he was one of my first baseball cards.

Jim Sundberg- because I went to two catchers camps with him.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

Wilson and White dont get the respect they deserve. White with all his gold gloves and Wilson with the highest SB% ever, gold gloves, and a batting title.
80's was a great era. We've lost all our great players the last 10 years or so. Cant get attached to anyone before they're gone.
Lost:
Tartabull
Cone
Dye
Damon
Saberhagen
Brian McRae

Id have to say that Brett and Bo Jackson rank in my top 3, but I'd really have to say that Mike Sweeney would have to be my alltime favorite because he tried so hard on teams that were just plain horrible for many years. He was just hampered by too many injuries and you cant fault a guy for being injury prone.

Speaking of names, I always thought that Lou Piniella's name sounded cool. I was thrilled to get his autograph at a charity basketball game in my hometown one time when he was still a Royal.

After Sal left the Royals, he was a backup for the Orioles (amongst others) for a while. One time when they were playing at the K, I started heckling him from old left field GA. He obviously misunderstood that I was clowning him, because he threw me a ball. So I swore from that day forward to never speak ill of the Sal. :)

He put the short in shortstop. 3' tall and could snatch a ball 20' in th air. That's what I heard anyway.
