All you Royals fans who doubt Ross gload, will be proven wrong. I laugh when I hear that he will be a backup to Ryan Shealy. Ryan Shealy is a joke. Ross Gload backed up Paul Konerko, Jim Thome, and Jermaine Dye for the past two years, so being a backup to Ryan Shealy would be a slap in his face. I've seen Gload get big hits for the White Sox; homers against Johan Santana and a game winning grand-slam off of Chris Ray, the hard throwing Orioles closer. If Ozzie Guillen, advanced scouts, and GM's across baseball had half a brain, Ross Gload would've been an all-star already. And mark my words, he will be the lone representative for the Royals in 2007; over Dotel, Meche, or any of the other over-rated players on the Royals roster.
