As you can see, the boring old blog look has been replaced with something new. Please let me know what you think!
In other news, spring training is a month away! And Royals fans have a reason to watch this spring's World Baseball Classic. Actually, three reasons, as the Star reports, Mike Aviles, Joakim Soria and Mark Teahen will play for Puerto Rico, Mexico and Canada, respectively. And Miguel Olivo may play for the Dominican Republic. So that's cool. I'm glad none of the Royals' starting pitchers are going to be there; I worry about those guys throwing too many pitches in competitive games so early in the spring, even if there is a pitch count limit in the WBC. But it probably won't hurt Soria; he won't throw many pitches in any one outing. And playing competitive games should help Aviles and Teahen get ready for the season more than regular spring training games would.
Let's hope this next month hurries along; I'm ready for some baseball!
