I'll dig in on our Royals this week, now that football season is over. I've been nerding out about the NFL draft for the first time in a long time.

I think there are some reasons for optimism and definitely some interesting things to watch. The starting pitching still isn't going to be good enough this year to have any sort of run, but it's coming...

They should trade Whit for a top 200 prospect.

Looks like a Nordstroms. No thanks
Those architects should be fired. Would be the ugliest park ever built.

It sets up how they would do the 4 divisions in each league for the playoffs. Expansion will be coming in the near future.

The fact that there are zero fountains in that design show the architects have no idea what they're doing. I'm not 100% against a downtown ballpark but you have to keep some of the elements that make the K one of the most unique stadiums in sports, and it reflects the city. Even the people on Twitter who want to go downtown were ripping this apart. Sure it's just a design but if you want to build buzz for a new ballpark this ain't it.

That stadium is nice and all, but can we also divert that fucking Missouri River so fans can look at the river while they watch baseball?!!!!!

It's blasphemous to design a stadium for the Royals that doesn't have some prominent structure that features the crowned shield (Crown vision). It's the home field icon.

Witt Jr. really needs to hit the ground running this year. The best reports coming out from the organization were that he was a good teammate in his limited action last year. Most of the other top 10 picks advanced to A ball last year after dominating in rookie ball. Bobby Witt Jr couldn't make it past rookie ball where he hit a mere .262/.317. For comparison, CJ Abrams hit .401/.442 in rookie ball over 32 games before advancing to A ball for a 2 game stint. I don't know if it's is taking the wrong player or our development program being so piss poor, but it's highly discouraging when a highly heralded guy like Witt Jr isn't able to come in and dominate the way his draft pedigree says he should.

I'm not going to lose my shit over a small sampling after a guy was drafted but I can understand a flag going up considering the Royals player development has been pretty well horrible for quite awhile now.

Iíve read that Wittís exit velocity numbers and other advanced stats were elite. On-field results just didnít quite match.

Something to watch this year, for sure. Those advanced stat indicators need to translate to real production over a full season.

I guess a real question here is how much leash does Dayton Moore get, if the Royals in the next 2 years show no signs of improving and that farm system doesn't climb quite a bit higher, does he inch closer to being fired?

I certainly won't lose my shit, winning the super bowl still has me on cloud 9. I have a lot more patience for a while to put up with a shitty Royals team and a shitty Mizzou program.
