2012 Spring Training Royals: Aaron Crow   Leave a comment

Aaron Crow 2012 Spring Training

As much as I would like Aaron Crow to be the dominant pitcher he was in the first half of last year, there just aren’t many signs of it. He hasn’t been the same since the “baulk-off” against the White Sox last year. Opening Day did not go well for him this year and if he doesn’t turn things around in his next 4-5 outings we will be seeing him pitch in Omaha.

2012 Spring Training Royals: Mike Moustakas   Leave a comment

Mike Moustakas is the pivot point for the 2012 Kansas City Royals I believe. The success of the team this years i largely resting on his shoulders. The expectations are too high on a player like Eric Hosmer for the team’s success to depend on him, he is expected to have a good year. Mike Moustakas however had terrible struggles early last year before showing glimpses of the star Kansas City fans think he can become. If he can be a presence at the plate in 2012 it greatly increases the chances of the Royals being able to compete. Even if Moustakas struggles this year, just remember, last year’s opening day starting third baseman was Mike Aviles, and 2010 was Willie Bloomquist before that.
