They lost 90 games for a reason. They really were not good in any area, and while I like the addition of Shields, I think their ceiling is mediocrity for 2013. Not that it's a bad thing. Mediocrity would be a big step forward for the Royals.

The Sox were second in fielding percentage, fifth in defensive efficiency and committed the fewest errors in the league. By both statistics and the eye test, they were a far superior defensive club than the Royals.
I've caught royals fever!
