Kansas City Royals recent news:

Even though the Kansas City royals have not had a bright participation quite recently, there are several reasons to view the 2009 season with bright eyes.  Hillman has observed the team performance and based on that data gathered he is now able to tell what the areas he needs to work in order to turn things around and get the most out of the off-season.

Gil Meche and Zack Greinke have provided great contributions to the team and they add a solid foundation to the rotation and as Hillman says, it is sort of like the 1-2 combo punch of a boxer.
