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.

    I agree with your concept. The Royals need a breakout season from someone, so at least one if not two of your starters need to be someone with more upside. As of now too many places with downside lurking and no more upside – including GMDM and Yost.

    Another worthy effort David. I am more excited for 2015 and beyond for the pitching staff (even though it will not include Shields). In Manea, Zimmer and Ventura you have three guys that can legitimately fill the 1-3 spots (according to projections and we all know how accurate those can be…cough…Monty, Lamb, Dwyer) and then a solid 4 in Duffy. I understand the downside of pitcher development, especially in the Royals organization, but sometimes all you have is hope…as a Royals fan.

    I don’t look for 2014 to be anythig more special than an 80-84 win season, but things could really get shaking if the pitching develops. Here’s hoping that they use Duffy and Ventura a lot this year, Zimmer comes up in August after a stellar AA/AAA showing and that Manea proves everyoe right regarding his potential.
