Yahoo’s Passan Picks Royals Second in AL Central

photo__4_

Yahoo’s Jeff Passan (yes that Passan from Royals-centric BooCano fame) pinned the Royals as his 17th ranked squad heading into spring training. By process of elimination, Passan has the Royals finishing as the runner-up in the American League Central this season behind the dynamic Detroit Tigers.

Passan waxes poetic about Wil Myers and how apparently James Shields isn’t Justin Veralnder (but who is?). Passan seems to leave quite a bit of wiggle room on his Shields stance, basically saying the Royals top pitcher will be scrutinized all year long. To cap off the thoughts of the new rotation, Passan is meh on Ervin Santana, and thinks Jeremy Guthrie’s deal may not be that bad.
He also goes on to praise Alcides Escobar, but avoids saying too much about Eric Hosmer or Mike Moustakas. For the Royals to get in contention late in the summer, each are key to Kansas City success.

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.
