I cant wait to see the day when Gordan, Butler, Teahan, and DeJesus are all in the same lineup. Hopefully some of the pitching will pan out this time. The future is starting to look a little brighter thats for sure.

Actually, others do that as well. See: Brock, Patriot21, Kotter...

Wow, some interesting responses, but this is a very big deal. As the article mentions, there are some unbelievable names that have won this honor, and considering that Gordon is only in Wichita, he will just keep getting better.

Get on the bandwagon now I tell you. The Royals will be for real in a couple years...

Football season has started. I don't want to read about, hear about, or watch anything to do with the Royals, the World Series, or any other baseball-related thing.

That is an awesome year. I am a Birds fan, but hate to see the Royals struggle so badly year after year, the same with the Pirates, and other good baseball towns. Except for the Cubs I hope their struggle never ends.
