We are playing the Ron Polk Royals way.

How much grit can we get in one image.

OK, it is fantasy baseball time and we are going to do it a little different here are Royals Review. It will be a standard 12-14 team league, but we aren't going to use the the traditional categories (well one, Wins). We are looking at the stats which show a player's GR!T level. It will be a 5x5 league with the following categories:

Batters Stat Categories: Triples (3B), Sacrifice Hits (SH), Sacrifice Flys (SF), Stolen Bases (SB), Hit By Pitch (HBP)

Pitchers Stat Categories: Pitching Appearances (APP), Wins (W), Complete Games (CG), Hit Batters (HBP), Batters Grounded Into Double Plays (GIDP)

Who cares about home runs and on base percentage right. RIGHT! We are talking about the Royals. It is all about sacrifices and running our pitchers out there until their arms fall off. Let me know if you are interested in joining our one off league (wydiyd~hotmail) for the season. In this league, Willie Bloomquist will be more valuable than Miguel Cabrera, as it should be.
