The Royal's are now 8 and 6 to start the season. Not bad when compared to many years past. Our offense seems to be doing well and Bannister and Greinke are pitching lights out. There are many changes that the Royal's made during the off season, but none stand out greater than cutting the player that emulated the Royal's success, Mike Sweeeney. Mike sweeney had a couple of years, but his chronic injuries have dragged the Royal's down in performance and payroll. I'm so happy to see him gone. Maybe now I can be a fan.
