Underrated: Podsednik, Callaspo top list 

April, 8, 2010
It would be easy to paint Kansas City Royals players with one sad brush, assuming that from a fantasy baseball sense, few of them can help us. But that's just not the case. Let's see, we have ace Zack Greinke, closer Joakim Soria and first baseman Billy Butler ... is that really it?

Looking at ownership percentages in ESPN standard mixed leagues, only four Royals are owned in more than 10 percent of leagues, including third baseman Alex Gordon (29.3), but he's rapidly being dropped because of his thumb injury. Hey, even for the Royals, this is kind of hard to believe. Certainly in deeper formats there are interesting helpers here. It's sad, but one of the top 10 most-owned Royals is a relief pitcher who happens to share his name with a top-5 overall fantasy pick -- in another organization (an obvious mistake). Anyway, my goal is to spread the knowledge of those other Royals to consider, to fight the good fight!
