And just one more thing: Royals

Kevin is at it again, this time with the Royals preview. There’s some real reason for optimism in KC-land these days. Here’s an extra guy to ponder:

Tyler Chambliss, RHP: A long time ago in a galaxy
far, far away there was a guy named ChamblissTchambliss
who crushed the spirits of
baseball fans in Kansas City.
Sure, I’m dating myself on references to both Chris Chambliss and Star
Wars. But there will be another Chambliss in the Royals future and his name is Tyler. The Royals
selected the young right-hander in the 11th round of the 2006 draft and he’s
done a more than adequate job since, going 12-6 with a 3.60 ERA in 48 games (16
starts). He collected five saves last year in splitting time between Burlington and Wilmington
and figures to get more opportunities to close things out in the Texas League
this season at Northwest Arkansas. He’s no
Wookie, sorry, rookie, — and why are we talking Star Wars here anyway — at
closing out games either. He was Florida State’s closer in 2005
and collected 15 saves that season. Keep an eye on the kid, he may turn out to
be something.
