Naturals again welcome Royals Caravan for 2012 Annual winter caravan stopping in Springdale on January 16th SPRINGDALE, AR - Although the grass is not green and the nights are chilly, the 2012 home opener at Arvest Ballpark is less than 100 days away.  With that in mind, the Northwest Arkansas Naturals are excited to welcome the Kansas City Royals 2012 Winter Caravan as it makes its yearly stop in what has become an annual tradition of kicking off a new year of baseball in our area.

Alex Gordon Player Projection No. 100

Key Stats: When I think of Alex Gordon I think of the little engine that could. Not that Gordon is a small guy, at 6'2" and 220 the guy could break me (I'm 6'1" and 175, but probably have a higher percentage of fat).

Having the benefit of perspective, it really is astonishing to think that anyone in the organization...

Reaping What You Sow: Kansas City Royals Top 10 Prospects

Trading away Zack Greinke was a pretty good indication that the Royals were just throwing in the towel on the season, and 71 wins and 91 losses later, we knew they had basically thrown in the towel. That did not mean, however, that they did not utilize the season. Eric Hosmer hit well as a 21-year old. Mike Moustakas had his issues, but you might as well have those when the team...
