Wow that list is great, I remember so many of them. But 1985 was "The Thrill Of It All" no? I have an old VCR tape of the Royals 85 title and it was titled that. What is that all about?

2004 was not Together We Can. It was latinized: "Nosotros Creemos". 1998's "This...is Hardball" generated more jokes than I'd care to repeat here.

I'm pretty convinced you get get average to above-average 4/5 starter innings out of him for about half a season. Maybe longer, if you limit him to 5-6 IP and never ask him to stretch too much.

What he gave them as a starter last year was above average (3.61 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, 15 starts). If he can give them 12 starts of 3.75/1.25, I think you take it and run... and drop in someone else.

My favorite Royals radio jingle comes from the mid-2000s. "Kansas City Royals basebaaaaal... sit where ever you'd liiike!"

I'm not second guessing the decision to move quickly as well, since as you stated above, but I honestly thought the pitching market would have been insane.

I'm beginning to wonder that the teams are getting into the habit of not interested in giving up their first round pick for a "suspect" pitcher on the market. If the Royals didn't give Santana the QO (Qualifying Offer), more than likely Santana would have been off the market. So the QO is a great tactic for the team.

If my memory serves me right, the Royals gave the QO to Santana of $14 million. At this rate, I would imagine that it's looking more and more likely that Santana could end up having few suitors coming into spring training, and be forced to negotiate a team friendly contract with the Royals, possibly less than $14 million.

I wonder if Santana is kicking himself for turning down that QO.....

While we have a relatively educated fan base, we don't get paid 7 figures to make these judgments. If GMDM made a bad call on the market, that goes in the loss column from a performance standpoint.

It amazes me how much smarter of a fan base we have for the Royals as opposed to the Chiefs.

Injury concern? Productivity? Valid reasons. Financial? Bunk.
Agreed, other than the owner is a greedy, penny pinching, no good SOB.

Yost says this will probably be his lineup, and he doubts he'll be tinkering with it.

1. Aoki
2. Infante
3. Hosmer
4. Butler
5. Gordon
6. Perez
7. Moustakas
8. Cain
9. Escobar

So, L, R, L, R, L, R, L, R, R

I predict that "no tinkering" BS will last until AT LEAST the 5th game of the season.

That simpleton just can't help himself.

Lineup is great as long as Infante puts together a solid .330ish OBP. If he starts falling below that, you're not using an optimal lineup for run production.

I'd still go:

Aoki
Gordon
Butler
Hosmer
Perez
Infante
Moustakas
Cain
Escobar

But that's not a BIG deal.
