The Royals will not be denied.
Twice prior they've gone after a specific type of player, only to be refused.
They drafted Marino, but he didn't come. They drafted Elway, but he didn't come.
Taking Bubba Starling in the first round last year was a start, but it didn't ultimately fill that aching hole deep within their heart.
Right now, there's only one guy out there that the Royals know can be a legitimate quarterback for them. Lucky for them, he's willing to listen to any offer.
I know Michael Jordan was a bust, but basketball and baseball have nothing in common. Football and baseball might as well be the same sport.
The ability to throw a ball sixty yards, eat a shitload of Oreos, and resemble Quasimodo all translate pretty well to baseball.
And let's be honest, would you rather have Peyton Manning or Yuniesky Betancourt?
I rest my case.
Go Royals! You're the Best!
