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.

    We are really close, David. A week ago I projected the 25 man roster in April barring trade or FA signing. My only differences:

    Gutierrez over Teaford. Based on his winter performance and Ned support plus he is out of options, I think it is his job to lose.

    I have the last spot up between Lough and Nady as think they will go with an outfielder just in case. Lough impressed me in his interview with you earlier but think Nady will be given every chance to succeed.

    Interesting side note here that Seratelli has been playing some outfield in winter ball to try and convince the Royals he can backup all positions. Probably won’t make a difference but give him credit for trying.

    I also agree that the utility job is Tejada’s to lose and the #5 starter spot is Hochevar’s to lose.

    The downside of this is Moscoso and Abreu must clear waivers and a whole slew of pitchers will be in AAA including Adcock, Teaford, Bueno, Coleman, and Smith..Look for another title run from Omaha.

    I prefer Coleman over them, too, but I was stating what I think will happen. Not what I want to happen.

    Only have a small issue with your roster projections, I feel like Coleman gets no respect. I’d definitely take him of Teaford and Gutierrez. Sure control has been a bit of a lingering problem with him but I think he brings more upside than the other two.
