The Kansas City Royals have not had too much success over the past couple of years—they have not had a winning record since 2003.
But a winning season could be right around the corner.
The Royals need to rely on drafts and scouting to find quality players, and they have been doing just that.
The Royals haven't clinched a playoff spot since 1985, the only season the team has ever won the World Series.
The team is improving, though. It has been five years since the Royals finished in last place in the AL Central, and this year, they actually made the jump up to third place.
Within the next couple of years, the Royals could find themselves on the opposite side of .500, and maybe even in the playoffs.
