The Royals may make the leap over .500 and into contention.
10. Kansas City Royals — A talented, athletic group of young, core players is coming together. They finally have a bona fide No. 1 starter in James Shields. You can’t be completely sold on the rotation, but on paper it’s better than it has been in years. The bullpen has some outstanding arms. The Royals may make the leap over .500 and into contention.”
After my note championing Dwight Evans for the Hall of Fame last Sunday, Bill Chuck came up with this: Alfonso Soriano is a career .273 hitter with 372 homers; Evans hit .272, with 385 homers. Granted, Evans had 1,384 RBIs compared with Soriano’s 1,035, but Evans played in 2,606 games compared with Alfonso’s 1,757.
9. One kid you don’t hear about too often is righty Rubby De La Rosa, who was acquired by Boston in the Dodgers deal. Interesting to watch his path with the Sox.
