• Interesting piece, Tom. Seeing more pitches was definitely key for Alex Gordon in 2011 and hopefully it is a focus in 2012 for the Royals as a whole. Of course, with so many young hitters, that is a tough task to complete.

    The Royals are also by far the youngest team in the AL. So there is a hope that with experience and age comes a little more patience.
