Will the Upgrades Help the Royals?

By: Tim Pafford

        The Royals have now acquired Omar Infante,  AokiNorichika and kept their stellar pitching staff intact. They have also extended the contracts of Team Manager Ned Yost, General Manager Dayton More, and showed Kansas City fans that they can be a contender if they can keep their starting position players healthy. 

         We will need to see where this will take the Royals in the 2014 season:

        Many people wanted the head of the Manager Ned Yost before the All-Star break in New York.  Many blamed him for the lack of run support that plagued the starting rotation and blamed him for blown leads at the end of games even when the team had the best relief ERA in franchise history.  None of these issues were team problems that Ned had the ability to fix when the Royals saw their biggest struggles during times of injuries.

         Time will tell if these fickle fans will stand behind him.  He was at the helm the season 
the Royals saw the best record they had had seen since the early 2000's.  At least the statistics speak for themselves and Ned spoke at length about his injuries as a player and how he would not ask a player to play through them even if he were allowed to.

         The needed upgrades on the infield are being taken care of and we what other back-up options the front office will ha e for potential injuries after Spring Training starts.  
       In all hopes, we will also see Bruce Chen resigned and can still see Dyson running the bases late in games for the added excitement of these two fan favorites.
But, until Spring Training starts I will add a few games from the 2013 seaon to help up relive some of the best moments of our Kansas City team:
