  • 2008 Royals - Spring Training

    I figured we could just put all the 2008 Royals news in one thread to keep it simple:

    The Associated Press reports Kansas City Royals general manager Dayton Moore said the team is likely done making roster moves until spring training begins in mid-February. "As spring training evolves, I'm sure there will be more things that we try to do," Moore said. "But right now I look for us to be pretty much set as we go into spring training."

          Crap! We never catch a break on opening day.

          Couldn't we get Tampa Bay or Texas? Just once?

            No, we never can, because Tampa Bay and Texas get to play teams like the Red Sox and Rockies on opening day.

            The Royals suffer similar fates, sadly....

                    At Detroit?

                    Nope. Now I feel worse.

                    Thanks, ASM. You're a real pal. ;-)

                    On a more positive note, the Royals caravan is in Hutch today. I'm thinking I may take the family and give Billy Butler some encouragement!

                      HAHAH Im going to try and make a Tigers game this year mainly because that lineup is so stacked.

                      Im actually peeved Butler and some guys were at Heroes from 7-8 on Friday night and I was not able to make it.

                        I think they're stopping at Heroes in Wichita today too. Around 7pm.

                            We made it to the caravan at 5pm and the line was LONG! They were only supposed to be there until 5:30 but they said they would stick around until everyone made it through. My son got autographs from Joey Gathright, David DeJesus, Billy Butler, Dennis Leonard, Al Fitzmoris and some guy named Steve Spencer (broadcaster???).

                            I jokingly asked Dayton Moore, "Hey, do you have a contract ready with Bartolo's name on it?" He smiled and shook his head and asked me if I thought signing him would be a good thing and how many innings I thought Colon would pitch this year. I said "200 would be good!". That got a laugh out of DeJesus and Butler.

                            A moment later Moore came over and talked to me a little about it (DM is a friendly guy!). He didn't think BC would command a high dollar but he sounded very concerned about BC's health and weight (278 lbs!!!). I got the distinct impression DM didn't think Colon would stay healthy.

                            So I think it's safe to say that Bartolo Colon will not be a Royal in 2008.

                              I have wondered why we haven't gone after Kyle Lohse. He is young and a good pitcher. The only thing I can think is b/c he is a righty and he have enough righties, but we keep signing them.
