Every year someone says that it’s the year for the Kansas City Royals and it’s easy to say it hasn’t been the Royals' year in a long time. If you consider their ‘year’ to come in the form of a playoff appearance, Kansas City hasn’t been there since they won the whole thing in 1985. It looks like it’s going in the right direction for the Royals, though.
Kansas City has a beautiful recently renovated ballpark and a nucleus of young talent. The AL Central, despite the Detroit Tigers making the World Series, seems to be wide open and the man that’s going to be huge in the Royals’ success is Billy Butler and the 100 plus RBIs he’ll knock in season after season for years to come.
