Royals End the Season With Dignity

Well, the 2008 baseball season is over for the Royals. They won their last series 2-1 and ended the season with a respectable .680 percentage for the month of September. They spoiled the division-leading Minnesota Twins' plans for a celebration, forcing them to await the White Sox make-up game that now holds the key to the AL Central.

The Royals' percentage for the season was .463, which is nothing to crow about, but considering the September record, demonstrates the rather poor performance over the summer. I sure hope we see some better playing in 2009. It has been a long time since the 1980s when the Royals were easy to cheer for.

They need to trade for some good well-known players OR they need to sign some players who have a potential of being great sometime like by 2009.

In the 70's and early 80's George Brett was the breakout star of the team!

They need someone like that who was a good player and the fans really liked on the field. If the Royals minor league team would develop some breakout stars like George Brett, then they would have a great team. (maybe)

Now, if they could just get a manager that would be good too.

Yeah -- There are a lot of good players then -- George Brett, Frank White, Hal McRae, manager Dick Howser, Dan Quisenberry, Buddy Biancalana. There really haven't been many since that stick in my mind.
