Futures Game Photos - Round 2

Here is my second update of Futures Game Photos.  Got some good ones of Yordano Ventura, some more of Wil Myers (notice a trend here?), and some other top prospects you may have heard of.  Enjoy.

Futures Game Photos

For All-Star Sunday I made my way out to the Futures Game where I got to see Jake Odorizzi, Yordano Ventura, and Wil Myers all play and represent KC and the future of the Royals.  My seats were excellent and as such I was able to get a bunch of good pictures.  I got most of them of the Royals prospects but a few others sprinkled in as well.  There will be more to come.

NEW 610 Post - Kansas City is the Real All-Star

We're officially halfway through All-Star weekend and I think it's safe to say that Kansas City has done incredibly well.  As we all know, I'm a huge fan of my city and love it so it's great to see us handle the national stage so well.  So great, in fact, that I wrote a post about it this week on

NEW 610 Post - 2012 is Opportunity Time

New 610 Post - Royals Need to Adapt

The Royals have remained stagnant as an organization long enough.  They need to hold themselves accountable, step up to the plate and realize that they are not the victims of their circumstance.  They will be able to compete and need to take the proper steps to ensure that happens.

NEW 610 POST - Royals Need to Stop Making Excuses

The Royals came out this season touting something new and different that the fans could be proud of.  With the All-Star game coming to town, we had a team we could call our own that was supposed to be different that the past iterations that did things like lose 19 games in a row.  A team loaded with young talent only meant that any promise we had seen was just the tip of the iceberg.  There would be more to come.
