The Royals finally released Jose Guillen last week, ending the agony of the saber-friendly Royals fans. The same day, Zack Greinke voiced his frustration at yet another rebuilding process. I guess he liked being in 4th place with proven veterans instead. The Royals are kinda sorta going with a youth movement now, vowing to play 1B/DH Kila Ka'aihue and converted OF Alex Gordon regularly, along with nearly acquired CF Gregor Blanco. Blanco plays because he's new, but it isn't like a gamer such as Willie Bloomquist is just going to not play either. As the cliche goes, it's a great problem for Ned Yost to have.

They were 26th last week in SB Nation's Power Rankings so I suppose you could call this progress.
