In what will become a weekly show, Dayton Moore will speak with 610 Radio about the upcoming season. Tonight’s show starts at 6:00 pm CST. (Considering it was eight degrees below when I woke up this morning, a hot stove sounds just perfect right now.)
The show is available for your listening pleasure on MLB.com. It’s something any Royals fan should be interested in. There are many questions about the Royals roster going into 2011 that need answered, from their infield starters to the makeup of the outfield and the everyday lineup. That’s to say nothing of the starting rotation which still needs a fifth member one way or another. Right now the only certainties are Billy Butler and Joakim Soria.
It’s been a tumultuous offseason to say the least. After the chaos, it’s time to start piecing things back together and seeing who’s going to stick around for when these guys actually start getting good.
On a side note, I wrote a bit last week about the Royals increasing attention to the online community of Royals fans, culminating with the Digital Digest next Thursday before the season ticket holders’ preview of FanFest. I’m happy to say that I was invited to participate along with eight others. Dayton Moore, Ned Yost, Billy Butler and Jeff Francoeur will be answering our questions, so if you have anything you want to know from any of them, post them in the comments and I’ll see what I can do to bring them up.
