Hey guys, as you can tell I haven't been posting about each individual spring training game this year and there is a reason for that. We all know that wins and losses in spring training doesn't really mean jack once the season starts, so instead I'm just going to make posts about how players themselves are performing and such. Once the regular season starts I should have a post on almost every game. So for now you will just get tidbits on what's going on around Surprise Stadium.
There has been much speculation that 2009 could be the year that Alex Gordon and Billy Butler break out and start producing the kind of numbers that the Royals expected when they drafted them. So far it appears Gordon could be starting to show signs of doing just that.
Gordon paced the Royals with a no-doubt monster grand slam on Tuesday, and followed that up on Wednesday with his second homer in as many days. Of course, we are talking about him hitting a pair of meaningless spring training homers, but could it be flashes of the year to come?
