8 Days: Until the Cactus League Opener
41 Days: Until Opening Night
When I came up with the concept of doing profiles of players in Dayton Moore’s process it occurred to me that “The Process” needed it’s own logo. I discussed the concept with James Tyree and he came up with this logo for what many Kansas City Royals’ fans have endearingly refer to as “The Process”
From this day forward any time “The Process’ is mentioned in one of my posts. Said post will proudly display this logo.
This week I’m going to focus on a player who I believe must blossom into All-Star caliber pitcher if “The Process” is going to get the Royals into the playoffs. I don’t mean a capable middle of the rotation innings eater. I’m talking about a Zack Greinke type, takes the ball every fifth day and you know the Royals have a better than even chance to win, ace pitcher. I am talking about Mike Montgomery.
The Royals drafted Mike Montgomery out of Hart High School in Newhall, CA with the 36th Pick in 2008
