Royals Draft Bubba Starling, Moose Gets Called Up

The Kansas City Royals didn’t have to look far to find their next potential superstar.  With the 5th pick to the 2011 MLB draft the Royals selected Bubba Starling of Gardner, KS.  The two-sport athlete now has to decide where he will be taking is talents to:  The University of Nebraska to be the big man on campus, or to KC to sign a deal and begin his journey to the Major Leagues.  It might be a hard decision for Bubba and his family, but it wouldn’t be hard for me.  There is too much risk in playing football at Nebraska where quarterbacks rarely make an impact at the professional level after their college careers.  The Huskers style of offense usually results in the QB’s taking many hits a game and Bubba cannot afford a significant injury.  Despite the risk of playing college football the Bubba Starling camp insists it’s still a viable option.  Many people believe this is just a move orchestrated by super-agent Scott Boras in order to squeeze every penny out of Dayton Moore and the Royals.  While Starling should sign a very big deal, he better be careful to not negotiate his way out of a contract with his hometown team.

For the second time this year a Royals game was trumped by a significant roster move.  After the 3-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays manager Ned Yost announced they are calling up 22 year old third baseman Mike Moustakas.  The young guns are starting to come up and the fans in Kansas City are getting excited.  It is hard to ignore this team’s potential if everything falls into place.  As long as Dayton Moore can acquire a quality pitching staff, the young bats could be enough to finally get this team back into the playoffs.  It is going to take time of course, but in a couple of years the Royals will return to the promise land!
