So it's spring again, which means Royals fans are counting down the days until Mike Sweeney's next slipped disc. But Buddy and the Gang have limited Mike's activity this spring quite a lot.
And in what limited playing time Mike has seen so far, we have learned one, very important thing about how his style has changed. Long gone is the gritty catcher turned stiff first baseman turned flat-assed DH.
No, Mike Sweeney has become a finesse player.
One of style.
One of grace.
One of... uh... flamboyance?
One of... JAZZ HANDS!
GO ROYALS! YOU'RE THE BEST!
