Former Royals In Baseball

The other day, I compiled a final list of former Royals throughout baseball. If you have any information about some of the obscure players on this list (Steve Andrade? Fernando Cortez?), then feel free to send me an e-mail or comment on this site. Thanks to former site contributor Ray W, who compiled an in-depth analysis entering the 2008-9 offseason over at his blog, Royals On Radio, Etc.

In the meantime, let's check some recent Royals quick hits:

- Braves pitcher Chuck James was non-tendered on Friday. Should the Royals seek to acquire the lefty at a (questionable) discount?

- According to Peter Gammons and Steve Phillips at ESPN, the Royals are currently frontrunners in the Rafael Furcal sweepstakes. I hope to read something more substantial, soon.

- The Royals non-tendered John Bale, Joey Gathright, Jason Smith, and Jairo Cuevas. Craig Brown at Royals Authority analyzes the move.

Speaking of Craig Brown, I was obliged to meet him at "Ground Zero" for all Royals radio chatter in Kansas City, the studio (and building) of 610 Sports. I have been obliged to 'quasi-intern' for 610 Royals analyst Greg Schaum, shadowing him on his program, Baseball This Week, every week. Greg writes for the website Light Hitting Infielder. Listen to his most recent program here. (Podcasts of every program are available over at 610 Sports.com).
