The offseason moves the Royals made or did not make, have come under a lot of criticism. Everyone that knows me has heard that I was not a fan of the Teahen for Getz & Fields trade. While I still do not like that particular move, the other moves have paid off so far. Why do I think this? Yes, the Royals have started out a little slow with a 5-8 record. However, the new additions have played well. Below are the current stats of our top new additions and the players that are no longer on this years Kansas City Royals team.
Scott Podsednik – .457 avg 0 hr 6 rbi 7 sb
Rick Ankiel – .255 avg 3 hr 9 rbi 1 sb
Jason Kendall – .348 avg 0 hr 1 rbi
Chris Getz – .207 avg 0 hr 1 rbi 3 sb
Coco Crisp – on DL and has not played
Mike Jacobs – just released by the Mets
John Buck – .184 avg 1 hr 5 rbi
Mark Teahan – .267 avg 1 hr 4 rbi
While it is still early, imagine how the 2010 Royals would be if they did not make the roster moves above. There are a ton of reasons to be optimistic about this years team.
