With the Royals first game of the season today, here is five things to look for against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
1. How well does Albert Pujols play for his new team?
The former Cardinals slugger signed a 10 year, 240 million deal with the Los Angeles Angels back in late 2011. Albert Pujols has a lot to live up to with a contract that big. So far he is tearing up spring training hitting .383, with 7 home runs. I believe Albert Pujols will be a decisive factor in the Royals first game of the 2012 season today. Another interesting fact about Albert Pujols is that in the last year of his contract in 2021, he will be making 30 million a year!
2. Who will be the Royals closer?
Currently the biggest mystery on the Royals roster is who will be the closer. In my opinion, I think Jonathan Broxton will get the job, because of his experience as being the closer for the Dodgers. Also another reason I think he will be the closer, because he has played solid in spring training...
