New Royals Trey Hillman look alike

It's scary accurate

Ladies and gentleman (and rednecks) I present to you an exact replica of Trey Hillman:

Rick Ankiel

Your new center fielder. Amazing how he goes from a stud in St.Louis to the spiten' image of his new skipper.

Ps. If you want to know more about me here's an interview I did for the BBA of which I'm a proud member.

The Reson for Reasoning (Why isn't D-Train a Royal ? )

As I sat at my desk I realized something, something very grand indeed.
Spring training is among us, and as the snow began to melt here at the RoRetc compound I am just now beginning to get into this grand new team.

The new 2010 Royals that will not have a single trace of the Beltran deal, a team that will be without Olivo, Jacobs, Bale, etc.

Speaking of the Beltran deal what ever happened to Mike Wood ? He was here, then there (Texas), then gone without a trace.

Anyway in place of the aforementioned players are aging veterans Podsenik, Kendall, Ankeil, great defender Getz, and AAAA players Anderson and Fields.

But alas there is something fundamentally missing, but what is it that is missing ?
What is it that we lack ?

Think, think,what key piece that the Royals have had for many seasons is missing at the start of the 2010 season ?

An broken overpaid slugger like Juan Gonzalez ? No we still have Guillen.
An aging catcher ? Wrong again we've got powerful Jason Kendall.
(We stack up really well with the '04 Royals !!!)

Well of course what we are missing is the starting pitcher drama.
Not that Kyle Farnsworth trying to follow in John Bale's footsteps isn't exciting.

No what we lack is that guy who has a guaranteed spot for at least 10 starts with his 8.00+ ERA. That's it we're missing our Jose Lima, Scott Elarton, Brett Tomko, Sidney Ponson, Horacio Ramirez.

So I got to thinking...........
Dayton's never really let us down before, we've always had at least one clunker in the rotation who keeps getting starts. Why would he disappoint us now ?*

*(may be banking on Farnsworth)

So I've decided to make his job a little easier.

What we need: A bad pitcher
What we have and don't need: Alberto Callaspo

I love Bert but as we've all seen Trey's lineup is itchin' ta^ ink-in Chris Getz.*
(add a "T" to Chris and it becomes ChrisT Get Z the Royals a World Series. He'll be the Royals Saviour.)

Back to my original thought why not trade Callaspo for.......

Dontrelle Wayne Willis

It's perfect, a match made in.... well Royals front office heaven at least.
And that my friends is the reason for reasoning.

Oh how I can't wait for the fun and games to begin.

Thanks as always for putting up with me.

RoRetc's 2nd Annual Royals blogger/media Super Bowl Bash

Welcome and thinks for taking time to read the predictions and insight to this year's Suber Bowl from some of your favorite Royals Bloggers. I hope you have a great Super Bowl Sunday and if you are going to be traveling any be safe and don't drive drunk.

There are three questions I dared to ask:
1. Who you think will win
2.Who you want to win
3. Anything you wish to add to 1 or 2.

Enjoy and best of luck to the Saints, Colts and The Who.
(2009 Ray W Royals Prospect Blog of Year)
(1-0 in RoRetc's SBB)
1. Winner Colts 35, Saints 17
2. This is one year I don't really care who wins, if the Colts win, they deserve it, if the Saints win, what a story.
3.And, as on Sunday, I'll be wishing I was on Bourbon Street if the Saints win. I think the Saints are gonna be in "just glad to be there" mode and the Colts are gonna eat up their D. Plus the Saints offense didn't look good against the Vikings. The Colts D is no Vikings D, but I think they're only gonna need to get a few stops to secure the win. I don't think the Saints can stop Manning and his good receivers. I don't think the Colts will give NO the opportunities Minny did.

1. Colts, 31-24

2. Saints

3. As a KC sports fan (and therefore a fan with no rooting interest in a championship event), I usually root for the team/city who has gone longer without winning a title. So, Geaux Saints!

1. I think the Colts will win 38-27
2. I want the Saints to win

1.The Colts will probably win by (at least) 2 TDs, with Archie, Eli, Payton or Danny Manning as the MVP.

2.I'd RATHER the Saints win, but they've got very little chance.

3. My all-time SB fav moment... that little "wardrobe malfunction" (even with my distain with body piercings).

1. I'll take the Indianapolis Colts over the New Orleans Saints. Final score 31-23

2. I'm a big fan of both Manning and Brees.
I suppose I'd like to see Peyton get his 2nd ring just a little more, but it's hard to root against New Orleans. I'm just going to sit back, enjoy the game with my friends, and have a few beers while watching the two best QBs in the NFL lead their teams in the biggest game of the year.

(1-0 in RoRetc's SBB)
1. Saints 45-42 *(4:24 PM I just changed from Colts to Saints)
2. I'll be rooting for the Saints
3. Well my dad is a big Peyton fan and I think this will go back and forth until one of the QB's makes a mistake. I wish Vilma would pick of Peyton on the last drive but Indy is the better team.
(2008 Ray W New Royals Blog)
(0-1 in RoRetc's SBB)
1. I think the Colts will win. Manning seems always in control of the situation and never panics. If they get behind he will bring them back. I'll predict something along the lines of 31-24.

2. I want the Saints to win only for the reason that Chase Daniel will be on their sideline. My allegiance to Mizzou extends to the NFL which is why I was also pulling for Brad Smith and the Jets in the AFC Championship game.

3. The Saints at least are somebody new just like the Cardinals last year. I tire of seeing the same five or six teams win it year after year so it's easy for me to root for the newbie.
(0-1 in RoRetc's SBB)
1. Colts 38-21
2. Colts
3. I will be watching WAY too early in the morning on Monday (China's 13 hours ahead of ET). Possibly drinking way too early in the morning too... we'll see.
