Beating a Dead Horse, Sporting News Tabs Royals as a 2013 Surprise

For the third season in the last five years the Royals are tabbed as one of the teams that could surprise ala whatever team did it the year before. First it was the Rays, then the Nationals and now the O’s but since 2009 national publications have taken keen interest in tabbing the Royals as a lookout team.

This years version was semi obvious after the trade for James Shields as SN explains.

Trading for James Shields is one of those assurances considering he has a 3.15 ERA over the last two seasons, and he did so in the lumberyards of the AL East. For Sheilds the Royals parted with maybe the best hitter in the minors, Wil Myers, showing just how desperate the team is to be this season’s big surprise.

We’ll get to see if Shields and company fair better than the previous Royals teams to shock the world.

About The Author

I grew up on the mean gravel roads of Iowa where I started my love for baseball from the age of 2. George Brett and the voice of Denny Matthews deepened my love even more for the Royals as my father and I spent summers listening to the team on our deck or in the car on our way to or from my little league and high school games. Sports was always the common bond that my father and I enjoyed and the Royals were in the center of that.I currently live in La Vista with my wife, two sons, two dogs and a pair of gross cats where we are grinding through until we can move somewhere warm when we retire. I own Casino Cab Company and Bluffs Affordable Auto Repair in Council Bluffs trying to build my 1% empire. If you are in the area you can find me at Omaha Storm Chasers games on most nights or just follow me on twitter @ClintScoles.
