The Royals play their final Cactus League game today, with Mike Maroth making the start. Might this be the last time we see Maroth in a Royals uniform? A nation awaits.
All the Spring Training discussion, drama, and intrigue (and non-intrigue) we've had over the last month reminds me of a simple little poem by Larkin, called "Nothing to Be Said". The poem gestures towards the blankness beneath everything we do, and finally suggests a kind of stoicism.
Hours giving evidence
Or birth, advance
On death equally slowly.
And saying so to some
Means nothing; others it leaves
Nothing to be said.
This site has its most value as a place where minute Royals-related discussions and reactions can take place. Unfortunately, and as has become something of a running joke, Spring Training, 90% of the time, is meaningless. Which leaves nothing to be said...
And so, yay Mike Maroth! Lets beat those Rangers!
