    Aw, c’mon.

    Spring Training is the time to be optimistic. Especially with this team.

    Greinke is the crown jewel of this franchise. His work on the mound speaks for himself. He doesn’t owe talk radiots a lot of interviews.

    Let him rest, work on next game’s plan, and do it his way. “If it ain’t broken, don’t fix it,” an’ all that.

    I love B-Mac but he doesn’t compare to Amos Otis as the all-time best Royals centerfielder. Lifetime bating average of .277 versus .261 and he did it playing seven more seasons that B-Mac. Lifetime average with just the Royals was .280 over B-Mac’s .262 Five All-Star games for AO and I don’t think (but could be wrong) that B-Mac ever played in one. Three Gold Gloves for Otis, none for B-Mac (again, if memory serves). AO led the league in stolen bases one season and was in the top-ten five times and B-Mac ranked seventh in the AL 1994 and 6th in the NL in 1996. Otis was in the top ten for batting average four times between 1971 and 1978 and McRae, god bless him, was never in the top ten.

    I know you focused your statement about McRae as being the best “defensive” cenetrfielder, and I’ve cited a lot of offensive numbers, but if B-Mac was so good in that vast desert of a centerfield, why did Otis win three Gold Gloves and B-Mac earned zero?


    GH: Your argument is a good one. I am in the minority in picking McRae over Otis but I’m sticking with him. He was beautiful to watch patroling center field.

    I can’t stand Dayton Moore. He thinks all of us Royals’ fans are fools. Earlier this year he bragged about how thrilled he was about the awful offseason moves he made. Then, to say building a farm system is an 8-10 year deal?! Bull$hit! Teams turn it around in 1-2 years all the time. Hell, the Marlins have won TWO World Series since we’ve been to the playoffs.

    I’m sorry, but the guy is a loser with a loser’s mentality. Free agency is a failed way to build a team?! WRONG. GOOD front office people (which he would know nothing about) mix in free agents and guys from their system to be successful. Moore sucks at both.

    PS We do not have a legit starting 8. We have one of the 3 or 4 worst starting 8s in MLB.

    I’ll give you one thing, Greg, you may be in the minority, but I’ll bet Ray Fosse would join you and say that he is a bigger fan of B-Mac than he is of Amos Otis.

    Greg, email me. I don’t see yours listed here and I wanted to ask you something about Greinke.

    Petro is so full of himself sometimes he doesn’t understand how stupid he sounds. Let’s trade Greinke just because he won’t answer questions from the media. Soren all things do not revolve around you or the media. Get some perspective on life and stop making stupid comments.

    Never have I been less enthused about a Royals season, which troubles me. And Moore’s act is wearing thin … Will JoPo be back with his “Royals will win it all this year” column this year? Oh, and I loved Guillen’s comment about how he was finally coming to camp in shape this year. What a putz.

    I’m with rick. I’m the least interested in baseball and KC Royals than I can ever remember. maybe it’s a hangover from a Yankee-win world series and a Royals team that was irrelevant 4/5 (non-grienke starts) games since mid-may.

    the AL central is always the weakest of the 3 divisions in the AL, and does anyone look at the 5 teams’ rosters and think KC’s is better than any of them?

    The Royals blew it 15 years ago when they passed on moving to the NL Central.
