Somebody stop me. I'm starting to get an optimimstic feeling in my heart about the Kansas City Royals. I'm starting to get that "every year at this time because it's spring training and anything is possible" feeling. Can it be? From whence comes my hope?
Mike Jacobs, Coco Crisp added to the lineup.
A solid rotation of Meche, Greinke, Bannister, Hochevar, and Davies - not spectacular but strong.
Joakim Soria shutting them down from the bullpen.
I can't help but think Alex Gordon and Billy Butler are going to be better this year with a season more experience behind them.
That adds up to this nagging sense of hope that I just can't seem to shake! Am I setting myself up for a fall? Is this bubble going to be burst at some point over the next six months? I've been a fan so long, I've come to expect disappointment, so as not to be disappointed by it when it comes.
But maybe this year ...
I can't even finish that sentence!!!
