OK... OK... I know that Spring Training does not amount to a hill of beans. However, I am once again excited for the season to start with another win by Kansas City today against the Colorado Rockies. Kansas City is now 3-3 in Spring Training games with another impressive scoring drive winning 11 - 5.
The Royals play tomorrow at 2:05 against San Francisco. Not even half-way through the spring training games, but again I am feeling excited about this team. I have only had a chance to listen to two of their spring training games; I hope that the run production carries on through into the the regular season. I believe I have stated this in earlier posts. However, I think back to last season and recall losing games because we do not have the run production.
Could it be that we finally get rid of Mike Sweeney and we start being productive? Mike was on the Royals team for the past twelve years and it was time to move on. Back in February, Mike struck a deal with a minor league team (see Mike Sweeney reaches minor league deal with A's). After being injury prone the past five seasons, Mike "DH" Sweeney has left the Kansas City Royals.
Maybe it is a new manager that is energetic that is helping this team to be productive. I am not sure! I do know that I am excited for the regular season to start and see how this team does this year.
