Let’s see if I can come up with a post every day of the rest of the offseason. Today, there are 37 days left until Opening Day on April 1.
is the number of home runs it would take to set a new Royals record, still.
Here are some ex-Royals who have, at some point in their careers, hit 37 or more dingers.
Jose Bautista (twice)
Carlos Beltran (twice, including 2004, so some of those were WITH the Royals. Ouch.)
It’s not a long list, because hitting 37 home runs isn’t the easiest thing in the world. But is it SO hard that nobody in a franchise can do it for a quarter of a century, especially when that quarter-century contains the steroid* era?
*and other factors, obviously. I’m not a cavewoman.
Maybe this year is finally the year.
