    Sorry, but I've got to disagree. The Royals stink out loud.

    They are pretty bad.

    But who knows how bad, playing the Twins, White Sox, and Tigers that much is just absurd.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    I'd have to say the Royals are the worst organization in all of sports (I think they were actually voted that by ESPN Nation). Dayton Moore is a HUGE improvement for them.

    It only takes one man, seriously.

    Allan Baird was just able to kill their franchise.

    The franchise developed Johnny Damon and Carlos Beltran and lucked into Jermaine Dye, and Baird got guys like Neifi Perez and A.J. Hinch in return. Yikes.

    I viewed it as a backhanded swipe at the Northsiders.

    True the AL Central was pretty weak for years before 2005 (36 games vs. two of the three dogs of the AL -- Tigers/Royals)

    There's your silver lining right there.

    Somewhere along the line, Yogi Berra has probably pointed out that the grass is always greener in another division.

    From a recent Bill Simmons column at ESPN2...

    (By the way, if you were covering the White Sox, wouldn't you make it your goal to keep asking Ozzie Guillen questions that could lead him to possibly giving loony answers? For instance, if I were covering the White Sox for the Sun-Times this summer, I would have repeatedly asked Ozzie for his opinion on the following things: tennis bras, "Brokeback Mountain," vasectomies, UFOs, Barbaro, menstrual cycles, dinosaurs, blogs, Suri Cruise, decaffeinated coffee, "Scarface," Celine Dion, breast-feeding in public, Ugueth Urbina, the plight of homeless people in Chicago, hybrid cars, steroids, movie theaters that still show X-rated movies, NASCAR, pro wrestling and Viagra. I would have worn him down, day after day, and gotten his take on every one of those things. This is probably why I never made it in the newspaper business.)

    Or in the case of the White Sox, how about the 1919 Series?

    No, no they're not. At all. The Royals are by far the worst team in baseball.

    I think the Tampa Bay Devil Rays are giving that horse a good run for its money.

    Nothing screams contraction more than the D'Rays.

    The big difference is that the Rays have some legitimate young talent in Kazmir, Upton, Crawford, Baldelli, Gomes, Cantu, and Delmon Young. The Royals are paying and playing guys like Mark Grudzeilanek, Angel Berroa, and Doug Meinkecrs...Menkair...Mooncro...err...Doug.
