His true path in the Big Show is a starter.
How do Royal fans feel about a talented local KC kid not being drafted by the Royals?
I'd rather have Trevor Rosenthal than Bubba Starling, but that's hindsight based (also isn't like they're the same draft class).
I can't give them too much shit on Rosenthal. He was a JUCO SS who had pitched 5 or 6 innings total when the Cards' scout noticed him. Just a case of right place, right time, I think.
