What a start for the Kansas City Royals. The 7-6 Royals are taking the American League Central Division by storm. Trading places with the Cleveland Indians, who are last in the division and were predicted to be at the top of the standings, they are intimidating other teams.

The main contributor so far is Mark Teahen with a .340 batting average and the new recruit Mike Jacobs bringing the power, off his 32 home run season last year, blasting four HR so far this year.

Coco Crisp is starting off slow, but the Royals are expecting a lot from Coco, especially his speed.

The main part of there winning is there pitcher Zack Greinke. He has started off phenomenally this season, with a 3-0 start with one complete game and an astonishing 0.00 ERA. They are hoping he will keep up his power.

After their astonishing season so far, the Royals are predicted now to take the American League Central. I, as a Twins fan, hope they don't, but if they do, congrat's to them.
