A Fan's Notes from Royals Fan Fest (2014 Edition)

Well, I did not take notes as extensively as I did my first year on Royals Review when I was really self-conscious about posting for the first time and wanted to be sure I got everything so you...

So apparently #boyfriend is an appropriate Twitter hashtag? That's lame.

Also, apparently Mike Moustakas got married yesterday. Did I miss the registry hubbub already? Does anyone even read FanShots anymore? These are the things I wonder about.

Twitter / StevePhysioc: Matt and Harold crack me up ...

Perhaps this gets at the heart of why I haven't warmed up to Phys.

In case you were stuck for ideas of what to get me. Also, look who the trainer is! Also, I can use the 'in-town' rate, so that saves you $300 right there.

I didn't see this mentioned anywhere else, so I thought I would point out that the Royals very subtly in the lower corner of an email they sent out announced the date of fan fest. I don't know if anyone but me cares, but there it is. January 19th.

And Jirsch answers, but I'm still confused. Shouldn't he learn to play the OF first? Also, Lee gives Minda a shout-out. 'Cause she's awesome.

So, ALL-STAR WEEK. You gonna go to any of this stuff?

There has been much talk of events happening during All-Star Week. I thought I would create a thread where we could gather info of events and such and so people who might want to meet other RR-ers...

OT: Bragging on my husband and his love of Strat-O-Matic

7

This is the little write-up he sent into Strat-O-Matic along with a picture of our recently deceased cat "helping" him play and which they have featured in their "Great Moments in Strat" for February. It perfectly encompasses the best things about him - his sweetness and his overwhelming baseball nerdiness. (It's the 2nd story.)

OT: Dirk Hayhurst & Japan Disaster Relief

2

The Garfoose says he'll call you on Skype if you donate at least $50 to Mercy Corps (partnering with Peace Winds Japan on the ground) to help with disaster relief. Maybe you can ask him something for the book club? I'm too shy to do it, so I nominate one of you.

A Few More Notes From Fan Fest

Last year I took really extensive notes.  This year I didn't, but I wasn't a total slacker.  Here are few choice quotes and some observations from this year's Fan Fest.  Also, I'm kind of groggy...

Merry Christmas Royals Fans!

What do you think May is asking Santa for this year?

Royals announce minor league personnel for 2011

I remember Vance Wilson came to Spring Training, but I don't remember anything else about him. Can you help a sister out and tell me what I should know about our new Kane County coach?

It's Alive!

Didn't see this anywhere else yet: "Former outfielder Brian Anderson, who decided during Spring Training to pursue a pitching career, will make his pro debut on the mound on Sunday night. He'll pitch in the Arizona Rookie League for Surprise against the Padres' team"

AAA All-Star Voting - time to stuff the ballot box

If you haven't seen it already, here are Minda's tips for how to vote. I'm getting excited for my trip to Omaha next month to see these guys!

Denny Matthews Signing Saturday April 10th - Please Come

3

This is a total self-plug because I work here and pestered my boss to set up this signing. So please come and spend lots of money. Also sorry if anyone is offended or if I've broken a rule if this counts as advertising or something like that.

Is Bill Pecota a Hockey Fan?

5

The Missouri Mavericks had a fundraiser for one of the players whose daughter has a rare form of cancer. I was looking over the auction list and a Bill Pecota picked up two of the items - a Sirota jersey and a week-long hockey camp. So is this former Royal Bill Pecota? And also they misspelled Zack Greinke's name when auctioning off his signed photos. What the heck?

Odd Man Out by Matt McCarthy

Just curious if anyone else has read this. I just finished it and really enjoyed it. It includes some goofy Callaspo mentions as he was on the rookie team with this guy.

Saturday's Fan Fest

I tried to take some notes today - especially during Dayton's session - so I'd have some more concrete stuff for you guys.  I'll also try to have less typos and grammatical errors.  I'm friends on...

Friday's Fan Fest

I guess I'll get the ball rolling.  Sorry no pictures.  And this is my first post, so please be gentle on me.

Is it just me or is Billy looking a little leaner?
