Size Doesn't Matter
Why do I suspect that advertisers are far more excited than fans about the Royals building the biggest scoreboard in sports? Not once in the dozen games I attended in 2007 did I think, "What this team really needs is a bigger scoreboard." I longed for a lineup with better hitters instead. Watching the playoffs last night served as a unhappy reminder of the real issue in Kansas City. With the possible exception of second baseman Mark Grudzielanek, the Royals don't have a single position player that would improve the postseason prospects of more than one of the eight clubs in the playoffs.
