It's December 29th and I'm tired of worrying about how horrible some of the recent transactions were. So let's wander back to seventh grade.
Who is your favorite Royal?
I know its almost a childish question, and sometimes when people ask me a variation of it, I am not only unable to really come up with an answer, I'm at a loss to even fake one. I just don't engage the game through that channel anymore. For me, the guys I tend to really root for are either A) really limited players who I actually hate or dislike as a blogger/hardcore fan but for obvious reasons can also identify with B) your standard internet/sabermetic heroes C) guys with interesting/unusual skill-sets D) players identified as destroyers of our national innocence or un-clutch by the mainstream media. There are both exceptions and overlap however, which is understandable given that its a subjective, emotional, thing. Finally, probably because of their daily presence, I've always been biased towards position players.
Current favorites, actually on the roster: Mark Teahen, Esteban German, Jimmy Gobble, David DeJesus, Mike Aviles, Mitch Maier, Shane Costa, Zach/k Greinke.
So who is your favorite?
