The Ballad of Rey Sanchez


Theres not much going on in the world of Royals baseball right now, or, as we are prone to say now, the Royals Nation (why not a confederacy?). Sure, theres the stadium funding fight, which really never seems to ever get anywhere. Its also inherently difficult to write about a situation in which a) you never know what the actual truth is and b) you need a PhD in Kansas AND Missouri political science as well as a JD or at least an MBA and c) one finds themself actually appreciating the K more with each additional demand that a 100,000 seat retractable dome by built.

Theres the Emil Brown arb hearing I guess, and we could always speculate on Buddisimo's possible lineups, rotation choices and who gets the scarlet C closer label out of the 'pen. Still, it seems tough to do these things when Affeldt hasn't even suffered his first blister yet.

Anyone else feeling the same way?

I would give anything to see Allard actually acquire Austin Kearns or Kevin Mench, just because I've now spent the better part of three years reading about these deals.
