What the Royals need is the Cardinals way. Not just build via the draft but, develop those players so that they are ready when they reach the majors.

Teach the same thing in low A that you teach at the Big Show.

The Royals can defintely use the same approach the Cardinals have used. It's doable for the royals.
Your views are overly simplistic.

Kansas City and the Royals ****ed up when they renovated the K. A downtown stadium should have been built, period. If they had, there would be far more money for the club because of fan support.

I'm sorry, but this isn't the 1980's. People have HDTV's and the Royals have a shit TV contract. KC is so spread out that the novelty of going to 80 games a year, without public transportation, wears off quickly for people living in JoCo or Blue Springs or Liberty, etc.

People that act as if there's a better qualified candidate just hanging around somewhere to deal with the Glass family, revenue issues, the farm system and the trials and tribulations of building a team, on a small budget, are smoking opium.

The Royals are not the Cardinals. Or the Red Sox, Yankees, Dodgers or Giants.
