Royals Confidence Index - April 2010

 
Rci_medium 

Here we are at the start of another season of Royals baseball.  The team has changed a little.  For the better?  I guess we’ll see.  Is hope springing eternal?  Or is the Royals fanbase drowning in a sea of despair already?  There’s only one way to find out.  Dive into the RCI and give me your answers.

Well, this is the first RCI since May of last year.  At this point I’d usually give the most recent RCI, but I’m going to hold off on that until I compile the current RCI.  Then I’ll report them both.  I think the differences will be pretty interesting.

Katie apologizes for the delay in RCI's.

Here's the deal.  For each of these questions, give me a number from 1-10.  1 means you feel very bad/unhappy/negative about the item in question right now.  10 means you feel extremely good/happy/positive about it.  (If you want to use decimals like 6.3, feel free).

1. How do you feel about the 2010 Royals team overall?

2. How do you feel about the 2010 Royals starting pitching?

3. How do you feel about the 2010 Royals relief pitching?
