Default Royals are 11-0-1

On an 11-game win streak after opening the Spring with a tie

1. They're getting it out of their system.

2. They're the Royals, the other teams are sending their A and AA guys to the games.

3. They changed their name to "Blackhawks."

They must have played the Sox 11 straight times to get that record.

It's possible that the Royals are playing to win games against teams that really don't care about playing to win. It's possible that young players trying to make the team and make an impression are performing so well as a group that the manager doesn't have to play to win to generate excitement where none would otherwise exist in the KC fanbase.

If the Royals get off to a quick start, as some teams do after winning a lot of games in the spring, people will say the Grapefruit League performance was meaningful. If the Royals struggle in April, as some teams do after winning a lot of spring exhibition games, some people will point to the exhibition season as meaningless. Some Royals fans will complain that they shouldn't have wasted all their wins in the exhibition seaon that didn't count.

I think it's the same as being 0-11-1.

Default Spring Training

The only Spring Training games that mean anything is when the White Sox beat the Cubs.

Royals still havent taken over the hype yet here in KC.. Still talking Andy Reid and the Chiefs and the salary cap... and oh yes.. Jayhawks basketball...

I'm gonna be doing Royals games for CSC this season, so you know you'll have a plant for the espionage and scouting reports..
