“Maybe” Promising Future… looks like you can add “FanGraphs Hates the Royals” after “Death” and “Taxes”.

It’s nothing personal, Carson, but there is a definitive trend of negativity towards the Royals on FanGraphs. I mean, someone here actually decided to take the time to write a scathing article on the Royals because they signed Pedro Feliz to a *minor* league contract. Do you think that article would have been written if he was signed by the Cubs, or Rays, or Diamondbacks?

Okay, so I just caught Michael Lee’s article this morning. I’ll back off a little bit. 🙂

I’m sorry but Daniel that is entirely unfair. I’m a big Royals fan but I know that the Royals promising future is definitely a maybe. How many prospects will succeed? Who knows. Lots and lots of top prospects fail. Will Dayton Moore do a good job of surrounding the prospects who do succeed with quality MLB talent? He hasn’t done a good job of bringing in MLB players so far, and he’ll need to add significant talent even if a bunch of prospects succeed.
