Are you optimistic that the Kansas City Royals will do as well this year as they did last season?

“I’d say they’re going to do at least as well with the addition of Juan Gonzalez and Matt Stairs. The sky’s the limit with them.”
“I’d be skeptical because I know there’s a lot of pressure on sophomore managers to do better, or at least as well, and sometimes it doesn’t happen.”
“I think they can, by (Monday’s) game. They were behind four and came back to win by two. The ending was spectacular.”
“At least as well because they’ve got a manager who didn’t give up on them, unlike some of the fans. A thousand people got up to leave in the seventh inning and we won it in the ninth.”
