Fox Sports on the Royals:
The notion: The Royals have a shot
Reality: For the first time in years, they do. By their standards, the Royals have had an active winter, and that's led some to speculate that they have a puncher's chance in the middling yet balanced AL Central. They've got some impressive young talent on the roster -- Zack Greinke, Joakim Soria, Alex Gordon (a breakout candidate for 2009), Billy Butler, Mike Aviles, Luke Hochevar (on a good day) -- and there's no truly great team blocking the way in the Central. This is not a team that would contend in most divisions --the back of the rotation is suspect, and there are far too many first base/DH types on the roster -- but the Royals have a shot. The Indians and Twins enter the season as the likely favorites, but KC is legitimately in the conversation.

The sad thing is that we have all heard this before.
