What Spring Training Is For

Spring training is around to help us realize that hey maybe Kyle Farnsworth wouldn't be a good idea as a starter. You've got to admire the Royals organization for always trying to keep the faith with players that never have shown that much promise. (Back side is cutting ties with guys like Matt Diaz and J.P. Howell). So yeah Kyle gave up 5 runs in 1.2 innings today, but it was a great outing for Bannister.

Tough news yesterday though for Alex Gordon he'll miss at least a month but hey at least he did make the majors. Which is more then Colt Griffin, Chris Lubanski*, and Mike Stoldoka did. The real winner in the Alex injury saga is Josh Fields, who should now get a chance to be the Opening Day third baseman, which in a way is kind of a win for the Royals because Josh has a twitter account and Alex doesn't.
But the really heart breaking injury was of top prospect Jeff Bianchi who will require reconstructive elbow surgery and miss all of this season. It is just such a sad story since Jeff had finally last year put together a great season and seemed poised to make a run at a 2010 MLB debut.

But hey at least Kyle's day was better then Jason Kendall's who as TMZ pointed out, is in court fighting to bring his kids to Kc. Oh and his estranged wife Chantel:

has suggested in legal papers that Jason is overusing Adderall, which he says he's taking for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

Thank God for warm weather and Spring Training that winter was really really getting old.
