The Kansas City Royals roster is loaded with youngsters who were baptized by fire during the 71-91 campaign of 2011. Hopes were soaring high in September, as nearly every one of those pups seemed to be putting it together.
But for the team to take the next step to contention, nearly every one of those youngsters will need to improve on what he’s shown thus far (save perhaps Alex...
Kansas City Royals fans are long suffering. No Royals playoff appearances since 1985, their last winning season in 2003 and three consecutive 100 loss seasons from 2004-2006 can wear down a fan, no matter how faithful.
But the 2012 season has promise mixed with cautious optimism. With 12 rookies debuting in 2011 and only being nine games out of second place in the American League...

If you got into football a little early (shame on you) and stopped paying attention to baseball, you probably missed out on what Salvador Perez did. He got 158 plate appearances for the Royals down the stretch and hit .331/.361/.473 with three HRs.
Of course that is a slightly limited sample, he had a .362 BABIP and won’t be 22 until May – all red flags.
So, why do I, Albert...
Billy Butler might more aptly be named Billy Boring, but there’s something to be said for a player who bats .300 with moderate totals in everything else. Considering his ranks the past three seasons, never straying from the 85-92 range, it’s appropriate that we find Butler ranked a number 92 in our rankings. He’s an xBA outlier, likely due to his complete lack of speed since...
Prospect #1: OF Wil Myers
Background with Player: My eyes; industry sources.
Who: Myers was considered a top-ten prospect before the 2011 season by many national publications. He failed to live up to those lofty expectations in 2011, causing many to forget about the developmental aspects of the process and jump off the bandwagon when his prospect perfume wasn’t as sweet. Ah...
Key Stats: Hosmer made a name for himself starting in the minors. His 2010 season in AA was particularly montrous, batting .313 with 13 HRs in 50 games, enroute to a .615 SLG and a .303 ISO. Baseball America ranked him the #9 prospect in baseball. He started out 2011 in AAA and made it through 26 games batting .439 and slugging .582. The Royals called him up, experts rejoyced, fantasy...

Billy Butler was the first to admit that he isn't very experienced as a public speaker, so when the Kansas City Royals slugger strode to the podium at Safeco Field on Wednesday to accept the 47th annual Hutch Award for outstanding community service, he helped himself out with a prop.
Royals DH Billy Butler became just the fourth Royal in history to accept the Hutch Award during a ceremony on Wednesday in Seattle.
