The Royals Are Picking Up Where They Left Off Last Year
In the American League a strong bullpen will get you very far. Last year the Royals had one of the best ones in decades. After a slow first series to the season, the bullpen (sans Wade Davis) and the rest of the team seem to be back on track. When you had the ball to Greg Holland you can sit back, relax and make your dinner plans. This guy is in his prime and a master on the mound under high pressure situations. I'm also liking Alex Gordon batting behind Billy Butler. You can just see the better pitches Butler is now seeing. As the season progresses we will see if the numbers back this up. If the Royals can get the sweep today it would cap a great home start to their year.
