After swearing off the Royals time and time again this year and as they continue breaking my heart I look at every player, coach and even the general manager to blame. I am so tired of rooting for a sub par baseball team. I am so tired of going to Kauffman Stadium ( a place named after an owner that wanted to win more than anything) and I am ridiculed by out of towners coming to watch their teams for three days. I spend more time defending my team that I don't even get to enjoy the few bright spots that we have on our team (Greinke, Soria and Butler at times). So here's to you David Glass. A man that has been called one of the richest owners in Major League Baseball. You have continually pulled the checkbook out from under general managers and have also seen your fair share of managers lose their jobs because of 100+ loss teams. But the target should be on you. Looking back at the last two off seasons of free agency where the Royals had chances to greatly help their team be more successful by acquiring players such as Torii Hunter and Orlando Hudson,The royals in turn had horrible offseasons adding players that were severely worse than those of Hunter and Hudson (examples Jose Guillen, Mike Jacobs, Coco Crisp). The mistakes have never been more apparent then seeing the All-Star teams being named with both of those players representing their leagues. Both Hunter and Hudson are thriving and moving towards gold gloves for their teams and then see the Royals badly needing positions that they have been shopping for for the last 2 seasons (middle infield and corner outfield. I am so tired of this mediocrity. I am to the point where i want to give up on the team i have loved and cried for all these years. Please do something to help the moral of a city that is so close to giving on this team for good. Quit taking advantage of fans that continually spend money and give us something to root for.

Great first post! I think its just you and me in here....along with the heckelers from other teams that come in as a show of "support" for us poor "Royals fans"! It certainly looks like a train wreck right now, but i somehow get the feeling that we could win a game or two the rest of the season! Hang in there!
