The season is upon us, even if spring is not.

2018 MLB Draft Picks
#18
#33 - Compensation (Eric Hosmer)
#34 - Compensation (Lorenzo Cain)
#40 (Competitive Balance Round A)

018 Draft Names to Watch

RHP Kumar Rocker, N Oconnee HS, Georgia.
Spoiler!

OF Jarred Kelenic, Waukasha West HS, WI
Spoiler!

1B Triston Casas, American Heritage HS (FL).
Spoiler!

RHP Carter Stewart, Eau de Gallie HS (Ga).
Spoiler!

ANY Any, Any (Any). Any current top projected pick who slides for injury concerns. Includes current top prospect prospect SP Brady Singer, U of Florida.

Current Prospects to Watch:

OF Seuly Matias - Huge tools. Hit 2 HR in Lexington (A) season opener.

1B Nick Pratto - Top pick in 17 has advanced approach and good glove; needs to start tapping into power in first full year in minors. Also at Lexington.

OF Michael Gigliotti - Good defender in CF, good OBP skills, plus baserunner. Next mainstay in CF for KC, IMO. Advanced college bat also starting at Lexington.

OF Khalil Lee - Probably has highest upside in Royals' system. Could hit 30 HR in majors, could steal 30 bases. Plus defensive ability in RF. Nice test at Wilmington this year.

3B Emmanuel Rivera - Really nice approach and good contact skills. Power is still developing. Also getting a good test at Wilmington.

SP Foster Griffin - Made nice strides in 2017. Needs to continue to progress in 2018. Could be a lefty version of Jakob Junis (good breaking ball that he can really manipulate, OK fastball, good command).

1B Samir Duenez - Duenez still is intriguing, hoping for a step forward in his power production this year at Northwest Arkansas, which would turn him into a legit prospect.

Others to keep an eye on:
SP Gerson Garabito (Wilmington), OF Marten Gasparini (Lexington), C MJ Melendez (Lexington), RP Tyler Zuber (lexington), RP Richard Lovelady (Omaha), SP Dan Tillo (Lexington), SS Nicky Lopez (NWA), SP Scott Blewett (NWA), OF Brewer Hicklen (Idaho Falls),

In general, Lexington and Wilmington are the most interesting spots to watch. Nice depth and a lot of interesting pieces at both.

I believe we had a 19 game losing streak in 2005. It followed a sweep of the 1st place Yankees. Man that team was terrible, but better and more entertaining than this one.

At this point in 2005 the Royals were 26-51 at this point in the season, and they finished at 56-106.

If Moore really thinks we can contend by 2020 he's a bigger dummy than I thought. We caught lightning in a bottle our last run, I doubt we can repeat using the same formula.
I wouldn't expect them to be competing in 2020, but they absolutely might bring up the next wave of players that season... and pretty much all the terrible money we have on the books will be gone, except for Kennedy. Duffy and Perez will be the only guys we have left, and Soler will be in his last year unless Moore tries to extend him.

Another huge thing we have to look forward to is the new TV contract.

Thatís when I think weíll see the first of the next wave of position guys arrive.

Soler, they have four years of remaining control, so the donít need to worry about extending him.

That will be Kennedyís last year, too.

Losing 100 games is hard. Losing that many more than 100 is almost impossible. Weíll see. Typical trends would suggest theyíll have some inexplicable hot streaks that improve the pace. Same for Baltimore.

Well the Royals are 22-52. At the 74 game mark in 2005 when they finished 56-106 they were 26-51. They did have a 19 game losing streak in 2005.

Most of my life never missed a Royals game no matter how bad we sucked. Loved the 2014/15 run, but knew this season was a return to the garbage I endured for most of my life. I havenít watched one pitch this season. I read this thread, and all the Royals development news I can find, but I canít be bothered to watch a team of largely jags lose 100+ games. Iíll be back to full time fandom long before we are competitive again, but this break has been cathartic.

I saw my first live Royals game of the season sitting in a pizza place playing live trivia last night. Didnít bother to stick around for the end.

I used to be that way about the chiefs. When I was a teen I knew every player since 1989 (Iím 35) and their stats, etc. I got divorced, remarried (a year and change in some order after the Alex smith trade) and stopped following religiously (used to be way more into draft, etc)... the break from constant devotion (which honestly filled a void formerly filled by porn, the chiefs, my cat and my former life) was very good for my soul and... nothing against anyone that rates the chiefs OR royals success or failure as even more than slightly important to oneís self esteem or worth, but... itís way better on this side of the fence. Maybe itís an amazing wife and amazing daughter, but... my personal self worth doesnít hang on the fickle whims of my sometimes shitty sports teams (Mizzou, chiefs, royals, bulls)
