With the Royals ever be successful with the current system?

Postby aberry33 » Sat Apr 19, 2003 2:11 pm

It is awesome to see them doing good right now, but of course I can't get the thought out of the back of my mind when they are going to slowly fade. Here is what has been on my mind during this losing streak.

It just seems to me that it will be a neverending cycle here. We have to basically work our system and hopefully find a star every now and then in it. Well thats great and all, but right when that player gets to the point to where he can really contribute to the team he is traded away, and the cycle starts all over again looking and hopeing for that star. Yes things are going real good right now for the Royals, they have some good young players that are showing good signs of success, but what happens in two years when they are really tearing it up and contract time comes up? I really hope that if they show some promise this year that Glass will finally decide to keep our young talented players. It will be real interesting to see what happens with Beltran.

This is what needs to happen. At the all star break we need to decide what young players will be part of our future and sign them long term (ie. Hernandez, Berroa, etc.). That will save us big bucks in the long run. Heck, the A's are paying Barry Zito $900,000 this year. Not bas for a Cy Young winner.

Do you think the Royals might go and sign a player or two if they are still in contention later on in the season?

I was wondering that myself. You know who is out there that would really help us is Chuck Finley. I say sign him after May 1st and if Affeldt is still having problems with his blister and May is still struggling he could help.

Just a thought. What do you guys think?

I saw on kansascityroyals.com that Glass said he was pleased with the team play (duh) and that increased gate revenue could lead to more team spending. Seems pretty obvious, but I just don't know, I can see us drawing bigger crowds throughout the season and Glass still trading away Beltran and then dumping more salary in the offseason. Man I wish Brett would have gotten the team. Honestly I don't see them signing anyone because Glass won't be willing to fork out any cash from his millions or billions in reserves.
