Mark Madness



Hello, sports fans! Thanks to the expert instruction I received at last week's Blissdom Conference, you can expect an even more enjoyable blogging experience here at RWC. One of the themes of Day 2 was the importance of interactivity. So interact with this.

In the spirit of Sh*t Nobody Says, I arbitrarily ask "Who is the greatest Mark in Royals history?"

Before you vote at the end of the post, let's quickly meet the 6 Finalists

Mark Davis (1990-1992)


Posted a 5.33 ERA and 6 saves in his first season with the Royals, after winning the NL CY Young in 1989. Lost the closer role to Jeff Montgomery. Had a sweet mullet.

Mark Grudzielanek (2006-2008)


Won a Gold Glove with the Royals in 2006. Longest last name in Royals history.

Mark Gubicza (1984-1996)


Won 20 games in 1988. 2-Time All-Star. Had a sweet mullet.

Mark Quinn (1999-2002)


Hit two home runs in his MLB debut. Placed on the DL with a broken rib after “kung fu” fighting with his brother.

Mark Redman (2006)



Royals lone All-Star in 2006. Known Vaseline-baller.

Mark Teahen (2005-2009)


Part of the Carlos Beltran trade. Mentioned 17 times in Michael Lewis's Moneyball. Might be Canadian. Known fashion enthusiast.

Now that I've refreshed your memory. Vote Now!

  3. Employing the industry standard Family Feud method, I surveyed 100 people and provided the Top 6 answers.

    It is a shame Littell didn't make the cut, because it would have been a great excuse to show this:
