Royals are #28 in early power ranking

I was expecting something a little higher.

Alex Gordon will be the best rookie on the planet, but there's little else to care about in KC these days. Of course, the comeback attempt of Zach Greinke could be somewhat compelling. On the whole, there's no team in baseball that's a surer bet to finish in last place.

This thread was meant to get people talking about the Royals.

Thanks for being a cynical smart ass.

The optimism would bounce off him.

I think you wanted people to get angry that the Royals were ranked so low. But some people, myself included, feel the Royals are right were they deserve to be. I don't give an historically bad team any breaks. For me to be optimistic with a team that sets unprecedented losing records they better show me before I start to hope.

Nope, no one here roots for the Chiefs. Who would ever think of such a thing?

You keep saying "us" and "we" like you play for the Royals.

Signings like Gil Meche are proof that Glass is willing to spend. Did he overpay? Probably. But that's what the market called for. Moore locked onto a starter that he wanted in the rotation, and Glass handed over the money it took to bring him in.

I'm not saying one signing will put them as a legitimate franchise, but they went out and beat legitimate franchises for a pitcher by spending the necessary money to bring him in.

I think Moore knows there is little chance Meche becomes an Cy Young. I think Moore wanted an in-his-prime MLB caliber starter. KC had exactly zero on the roster when Moore arrived. The Royals had zero prospects close to KC.

KC didnt have the bargaining chips to acquire starting pitching. Ready to go, MLB caliber starting pitching. Moore needed 5. He could get a Bannister. He could get a Perez. But unless he was willing to run out Duckworth, Keppel, Bautista, Hernandez, Joe Mays-types 3 times a week, he had to get a FA.

Lets look at the choices: Zito? be real. Miguel Batista? too old and pedistrian. Ted Lilly? Ok, nothing special. Gil Meche? he is the right age, 28, should get 5 effective years out of him. He has the right "stuff". Scouts have always loved him.

It's just the matter of Meche delivering the goods.

One signing is not proof that Glass is willing to spend. Actually spending the money to put together a team that is able to compete -- that will be proof that Glass cares about making this team legitimate.

If one of the big market teams wanted Meche badly enough, they would have paid him more than we could have afforded (and, by the way, it is very common for sports fans to use pronouns like "us" and "we" when referring to their team)(do you always refer to your teams as "they"?).

I was born and raised in KC, and feel obligated to try to continue following the Royals.

Honestly, though, I'm almost to the point where I start hoping the league folds them or they leave town. Bring in the NBA or NHL and give us a different team to follow. I don't know, maybe baseball's had its day. I mean, it's not a very exciting sport to watch. It's fun to follow and track statistics ... it's fun to take the kids to a game, but then again it's fun to take the kids to the playground. Cheaper, too.
