While my introductory statement was clearly in jest, the Royals are indeed tied for 1st place in the AL Central. They are coming off a three-game series with the sadder-sack Chicago White Sox, and are 2-1. The Twins will be making a quick stop in Kansas City for two contests at the beginning of their first road trip of the season. The Royals are in the midst of a rebuild, coming off a 104-loss season (and maybe headed toward another). Furthermore, they traded away their 2nd-best player, Mike Moustakas, in July of last year. Their best player, All-Star catcher Salvador Perez, was lost to Tommy John surgery this spring, and he will miss the whole year. They offset these losses by adding journeyman catcher Martin Maldonado and speedy (but that’s about all) outfielder Billy Hamilton. One player to keep an eye on, though, is speedy second baseman Whit Merrifield. He is a slick defender and no slouch at the plate. Their pitching staff is similarly in flux, as top starter Danny Duffy will be out until the end of April. The four-man rotation they are rolling with right now is largely unproven, and their bullpen (after losing Kelvin Herrera to free agency) is nothing to write home about either. Without further ado Justin Bour Jersey , here is the roster:KC RosterPositionNamePositionNameAll in all, I think the Twins should be able to build on their strong first series. Cleveland’s lineup was very unimpressive, but don’t take too much credit away from the strong pitching performances that were put out. Kansas City’s lineup is no more impressive than Cleveland’s, and their pitching is certainly worse. Jose Berrios is taking the mound in game one, and if he picks up where he left off on Opening Day, the Twins will be able to grab an early lead in the division.

There has been a decline , yes, but I do understand what I’m capable of doing.McCutchen hit .255 with 20 homers and 65 RBIs in 155 games this year for San Francisco and the New York Yankees. His average was a career-low and his homers and RBIs were his fewest since 2010. He spent his first nine years in Pittsburgh and was the 2013 NL Most Valuable Player.“I know I can be better, and that’s what I’ve been doing all offseason: preparing and working, and that’s not going to stop,” he said. “I’m looking forward to being even better than I’ve been. I’m never satisfied, and I don’t settle with what I’ve done. That’s just the person I am.”Phillies manager Gabe Kapler gave up his No. 22 and presented McCutchen with his first red pinstriped jersey. He said McCutchen will bat anywhere from first through fifth and will play a corner outfield spot.“He’s a guy who consistently puts up 600 plate appearances,” said Kapler, who will wear No. 19. “He’s been extremely durable, and he wants to play for us every day.”The 32-year-old McCutchen was an All-Star each season from 2011-15, topping .300 in batting average from 2012-14. He has 223 homers, a .287 average and 790 RBIs in 10 major league seasons. His on-base percentage (.378) is higher than anyone else on Philadelphia’s current roster and his slugging percentage (.481) is second only to Rhys Hoskins (.525).“I’ve never played an entire season in a hitter’s park. I’m looking forward to that,” McCutchen said of hitter-friendly Citizens Bank Park.Hoskins came out to see McCutchen and talked about the team’s offseason moves. The Phillies acquired shortstop Jean Segura from Seattle and are pursuing free agents Manny Machado and Bryce Harper.“I think we’ve (added) some pretty good baseball players so far, really exciting,” Hoskins said. “A couple of more veteran guys in Segura and Cutch, which I really think will add to the clubhouse presence and just kind of overall environment Nick Wittgren Jersey , especially when we get late in the year. These guys have been through that. And it will be nice for the bulk of us to be able to lean on them and kind of get us through that.”Hoskins and Harper share an agent, Scott Boras, so Hoskins has talked to the 2015 NL MVP.“It’s just more of me offering any look at to what this city is like, what the organization is like, what the clubhouse is like, what Kap is like,” Hoskins said. “It’s not me offering information to him. If he wants it, and I’ve expressed this to him, that I am here for a chat if he wants it and it’d help.”McCutchen hasn’t been part of any recruiting process but is willing to do whatever it takes to help the Phillies improve. Philadelphia finished 80-82 last season after leading the NL East on Aug. 11.“I saw this team from afar and played against them, and I saw what they were able to do this season,” McCutchen said. “They fell a little short, but something I realize is that it’s there. I’m happy to be a part of it and help push this team forward to winning a championship.”
