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.

    One other comment on Miguel Tejada. I do believe Ned plans to put Miggy on the roster as he believers that Tejada can back up all 3 non-1st base positions. Saves another utility spot and gives him more flexibility with pitchers. Ned does not use his bench anyway and we know how he likes to have LARGE pitching staffs.

    The Royals have already said they do not believe Abreu or Falu are adequate backups for Escobar. Means both will end up back in Omaha until Tejada follows the Yuni route.

    Good Friday Notes, David. Sorry about the website, know how frustrating it is. But we just kept checking until it came back.

    On Tejada. Still no word from Dayton Moore on the rumor that Tejada has been guaranteed a spot. Until I hear it from DM or NY, I am going to assume it is a language miscommunication or Tejada’s enthusiasm getting the better of him.

    On the number of wins for 2013, my scientific projection came up to 85 wins based on the change in starters. However, I believe Ned Yost cost the team 10 games last year with his pitching moves and thus, the team could achieve 95 if he were fired today and somewhere in between depending on how long Dayton goes before replacing Ned with Jason Kendall.

    On RF, I am totally in agreement. Royals need a platoon/backup for Frenchy and Cain in case they play like 2012 and not 2011. My votes have been to try and pry Colvin or Fowler from Colorado or Eaton or Pollack from Arizona. Stanton would be a great pickup and probably achievable but don’t believe Dayton will go that far as would have to give up some verifiable prospects like Starling, Ventura or Zimmer.
