Yesterday, the Royals had a much needed off-day.  However, while the Major League club isn’t playing a game, the action does not stop in the organization.  Yesterday, there were eight games played throughout the Royals Minor League system.  I know that when the Major League team struggles, the focus can start to turn towards the Minor Leagues and for good reason.  The minors represent a brighter future and hope of a renewed organization.  For a lot of reasons, there is some excitement building around the current crop of Royals Minor Leaguers.

If you are anything like me, you spend most mornings looking at all of the minor league box scores to see how some of the younger guys like Eric Hosmer, Wil Myers and Christian Colon are faring.  However, going to individual team pages to find a box score can be a little tedious with nine different minor league teams.  Recently, I began putting together a .pdf of the previous days action around the Royals organization.  It has every box score and a quick rundown of who had a pretty good night.  It is still a work in progress, and there are some days where I am unable to put the document together.  But, recently I’ve been sending it around to some people via email and it has had a pretty good response.  So now, loyal Royals Authority readers, I offer it up to you as well.

If you would like to be added to the email list to receive this, just send an email to brokenbatsingle at gmail dot com, and ask to be added.  Keep in mind though, that it is still a work in progress so there are formatting things I need to iron out and it may come slightly sporadically.  All you will receive via email will be an email from me with the .pdf file.  You can print it out, read it on a Kindle, a laptop or any .pdf reader.  I hope you get some value out of it.  If you would like to preview todays file, click on the link below.
