Royals complete the 3 game sweep of Anaheim today. Looked VERY good at the end of that road trip, hopefully it will hold over to the extended home stand.

Allow me to guffaw.

Hilarious. All that money they spend, and the Yankees suck this year.

I'm thinking about ordering playoff tickets but I don't want to jinx them.

I think he's being EXTREMELY sarcastic.

Nice win tonight, though. 3-2 in 11 innings over the hot Seattle Mariners. More great pitching from Meche and the bullpen, and David DeJesus was hot. Two doubles, a home run, all three runs, and a line out that led to Richie Sexson leaving the game.

Think next year they finish within 10 of .500?

Hard to say. There are going to be more changes by Dayton Moore with more veterans being traded/released. Obviously Sweeney will be gone, as will Reggie Sanders and probably Emil Brown. Others who might go are Odalis Perez and Octavio Dotel. I can see this team winning 65-70 games this year and 70-75 next year. I think, right now, 2009 or 2010 could be the first bona fide chances for the Royals to contend. More starting pitching is needed, but that bullpen right now has to be among the best in baseball.

Grienke is bringing it, that's for sure. Your 75 prediction could be right on as long as management continues to loosen its pocketbooks jusssst a little bit more...some wise decisions down the line and the K could be rocking. My bet is on some serious .500 ball for the next few years. Could be worse

Think about this...the Royals are currently spending $27 million (that's over 40% of their total payroll) on five players WHO AREN'T PLAYING (Sweeney, Grudzielanek, Sanders, Brown, Elarton). Take those five off the roster, redistribute that money to two or three real players in free agency, and suddenly this is a much better team with exactly the same payroll.

Wow ... None of those guys should be around next year, except for maybe Grudzielanek.

Its nice to see some people like yourself supporting the Royals. When I lived in the area I didnt miss a game on tv,radio, or going to them. I just would like to see them play .500 ball again someday, that would be nice. And Kaufmann Stadium is going to be sweet after the renovations. Maybe that will be done in time when they become a good or great team again. We can hope,right....

Grud is worth keeping unless they can find a real solid prospect. Sweeney is only around because they'd have to pay him this year whether he's on the roster or not. I wouldn't expect to see Sanders around next year either, probably Brown as well.
