The Royals have four players among MLB.com's Top 100 Prospects -- outfielders Bubba Starling and Wil Myers and pitchers Mike Montgomery and Jake Odorizzi -- but that doesn't make the organization unique.

It is the mantra of nearly every new pitching coach in Kansas City over the years: Trust your stuff, pound the strike zone, get ahead in the count, etc.
Once again, it will be the mantra of new Royals pitching coach Dave Eiland. And, quite frankly, it has to be.
The Royals walked more hitters (557) than any other team in the American League.
"Talk is cheap," Eiland told...

Jeff Francis signed a minor league deal with the Reds last night. I have more to say about this, but I'm really, really busy right now. I'll post more this evening.
The Reds have signed free-agent LHP Jeff Francis to a minor league deal, Jon Heyman of CBSSports reported on Twitter.
Last week, Jerry Crasnick of ESPN said the Mets, Reds, Blue Jays and Mariners had been “keeping tabs” on Francis.
Francis, 31, went 6-16 with a 4.82 ERA in 183 innings during 31 starts for the Royals last season. Although he gave up 224 hits, he allowed just...
Sports Illustrated's Joe Posnanski is in a tough spot. He's a gifted writer and by all appearances a decent guy. His decency is his defining characteristic; he grew up rooting for doomed Cleveland teams and covered the worthless Kansas City Royals, but he never gave in to the urge to be a hatchet man.
