I have no words to describe this week. All I can do is thank the countless number of people who have gotten me here. For years, I thought today would never be possible. But… https://t.co/stD0F1d7p1

Any updates on possible draft picks? I’m hoping there are two can’t miss prospects out there.

Far and away my favorite moment of the weekend was the matchup between Burr and Hamilton. The guys on radio had some fun with that.

Good weekend any time you win a series, but the pitching's gonna screw us hard.

Any chance we move Lovelady up quick? Him, Zimmer and Kennedy wouldn't be horrible IMO.

Last year his WAR was negative, the year before it was less than 1 and the year before that it was 1.5. There is no reason he should be on this team.

A dream scenario for me is that by September Lovelady, Staumont, and Zimmer shore up the bullpen to close out games.

Granted, this would require Staumont to find the damn strikezone.

Oregon State C Adley Rutschman has separated himself as the best prospect but there is question about whether a team will take him first overall because C play less and have higher injury risk than other position players. In addition to having elite upside defensively, Rutschman has been the top college hitter this year.

Cal 1B Andrew Vaughn has emerged as my personal favorite. He has been a consistent force in college, putting up career numbers that rival/exceed those of recent college superstar bats like Kris Bryant. He has the ability to hit for a high average, with good plate discipline and OBP skills, and plus power. Hes likely limited to 1B as a pro, which might cause the Royals to pass on him.

There are several elite high school prospects jockeying for position at the top, too. Bobby Witt Jr has fallen down rankings a bit due to questions about his hit tool but is still in the mix. CJ Abrams is another name Ive seen connected to KC. Hes a speedy SS with developing power.

The Orioles have an all-new front office, so its hard to predict where they will go.

A bit cold yesterday, but sunny and no wind. Nobody at the game yesterday. Royals have new promos for $5beer and cheaper concessions, the staff practically jumps at you to help answer questions.

Sad our fans abandoned the franchise. Gotta win a WS to draw

The Royals have a spot on their 40 man roster which will likely go to Homer Bailey who is scheduled to start Wednesday's game. But, the Royals will have to move someone off the 25 man roster. I've narrowed it down to two; either Barlow or McCarthy could be optioned to Omaha. Any other possibilities?

I wish we lived closer. Wed go all the time. Win or lose, we love the ball park atmosphere. Especially, my kids. Wed probably have some sort of season package.

Don't think that is exactly fair. It's cold, early in the season and team is tanking on purpose.
