Nice story about Kyle Davies from Bob Dutton, basically says he's out there thinking less. He became a legitimate #3 starter behind Meche and Grienke last season when he went 9-7 with a 4.06 ERA (including an impressive 4-1 2.27 September) and has followed that up with a dominating spring. After his four scoreless innings today he now has given up just one earned run 12.2 innings. I'm a Davies believer and I think we are going to see him put it all together this year (much like we witnessed with Greinke last season).
So while talking to my brother I mentioned how I thought the Royals would win the Central this year and he challenged me to put it in a blog post. So I did that here for Dugout Central, I'm obviously in the minority but I really don't care. I think it will be a four team race with the Sox watching from the sidelines and it will go down to the seasons final few weeks. I expect to take some ridicule but in the end I also expect to be right.
