WHB is reporting that Ken Harvey did not make the 2005 Royals. Calvin Pickering will make the team as DH/1B. WHB is also announcing that Emil Brown will make the team as the right fielder and that Kyle Snyder will be sent to Omaha to begin work learning to be a reliever.
Harvey was the Royals' only All Star last year after hitting for a bloated average in early 2004. He then regressed and had a terrible second half, and apparently the Royals have finally seen his warts.
This is in keeping with the old baseball axiom... If the fat kid can hit, put him at first base.
