14 for 77 What does that mean and why that?

Why 14 for 77? The Kansas City Royals Baseball Academy created 14 major leaguers out of 77 prospects. I found that to be a pretty large number even if none of the 14 turned out to be hall of famers. I would think any scout that went 14 for 77 would have a pretty long and good career.

What is the goal of this blog? To just list my thoughts and give me a reason to attend more minor league games as opposed to sitting and watching the pro team get spanked night in and night out.

This blog is to be all about the Kansas City Royals and primarily the players in their farm system. While the Royals have been terrible since George Brett retired I believe we are entering a new age (at least I hope so). A Royal age of pitching domination with flurries of positional talent. Why do I think that? I don't know that I do but I'm hopeful for it. Some of them have to pan out, don't they?

Here are the main suspects in order of Minor league level (My Projected Level Very likely wrong)
Position Players
Omaha Royals
Jordan Parraz OF
David Lough OF
Tim Smith OF
NW Arkansas Naturals
Jeff Bianchi SS
Mike Moustakas 3b
Johnny Giavotella 2b
Derrick Robinson CF
Wilmington Blue Rocks
Eric Hosmer 1b
Burlington Bees
Wil Myers C/CF

Omaha Royals
Carlos Rosa
Chris "Disco" Hayes RH Specialist
Blake Wood "Relief"
Greg Holland Relief
Chris Nicoll Relief
NW Arkansas
Mike Montgomery Starter LH
Aaron Crow RH Starter
Dan Duffy LH Starter
Louis Coleman RH Relief
Henry Barrera RH Relief
Wilmington Blue Rocks
Chris Dwyer LH Starter
Tim Melville RH Starter
Kelvin Herrera RH Starter
Ed Cegarra RH Starter
Burlington Bees
John Lamb LH Starter
Keaton Hayenga RH Starter
Tyler Sample RH Starter
Greg Billo RH Starter

So there you have it, the Royals Wannabes and hopefuls !
