Last Friday I took in my first Omaha Royals game (also mentioned here by the fantastic Lee Warren) which means it was also my first look at some prospects. So instead of writing a post questioning Ned Yost's love for Willie Bloomquist I thought instead I'd share my thoughts on some future Kansas City Royals. So while I realize one game is too small a sample size to make any definitive conclusion I felt I did see enough to form some opinions. It was also Star Wars night and I won't deny that playing a part in deciding which Omaha game to attend. Now then, on to my amateur analysis.
Dyson is fast, really fast and he covers a ton of ground in centerfield but he reminded me Joey Gathright and as you recall he didn't pan out in KC. Dyson may be a different story but if used as a defensive replacement/pinch runner he could have some value for the Royals even if he can't hit big league pitching. However he may want to hit because I can't see them carrying him if they also have Derrick Robinson, a similar player.
Omaha lost the game 13-6 but it was still a very positive experience. I will definitely try to attend at least one game a year from here on out, providing the Royals continues to feed Omaha their top prospects.
