About the author

David Lesky

I never had a chance. I was born into a family who loved baseball and the Royals, so I accordingly love baseball and the Royals. I just so happen to love to write also, which makes writing about the Royals for this site something that makes me happy each and every day. When I first started blogging, a fairly well known baseball writer told me to only do it until I'm unhappy doing it, but I don't see that coming any time soon.

    Greg, the Boras information is good, thanks. That allows me to regenerate my prediction that Duffy is the next extension, either mid-season or even after a quality spring training. If Hoz and Moose are unsignable for something like an inflated Ryan Braun deal of 8/55 or so, then I expect the Royals to go hard after the others. David, good work, thanks.

    I don’t think it is any secret how much I care about Duffy. He did things behind the scenes that were something you would not expect out of a young man his age. He took care of teammates when they had nowhere to turn….bought a suite at Omaha last year on mother’s day for the wives and girlfriends of the team. He is just a quality, quality young man.

    I had not heard from Danny since I spent time with him in Surprise last spring and again when I visited with him before he scouted pitches during a Storm Chaser game. It was not his day to chart but he told me he took 50 bucks from Mazzaro and Suppan to take their charting days.

    This is a kid that is a fan of Wal Marts for people watching, runs to games from the team hotel and is just very engaged and curious when you talk to him. He sent me a message yesterday to let me know that he was not a Boras client and we exchanged messages with one telling me to give my son a hug for him and look forward to seeing us at the park.

    One of the many great young men in this franchise…..some make it, some become football players at Boise State, some lead outdoor extreme sports adventures…..

    Duffy has always seemed like a sincere guy to me. I don’t remember where I saw the interview, but it was just a couple of days ago…he was talking about when he took his break from the game a couple years back. He said now he wants to play until he is 45 years old and he wants every minute of it to be in a Royals uniform.
