BP Daily: A Royal problem in K.C.
Alex Gordon's failure to develop speaks volumes about the Royals' organization
It wasn't that long ago that Kansas City Royals third baseman Alex Gordon was the next big thing. In 2005, he won nearly every individual award handed out in college baseball, with a .372/.518/.715 (batting average/on-base percentage/slugging percentage) line during his junior year at Nebraska while showing enough athleticism to add 23 stolen bases in 26 attempts.To see what went wrong with KC's handling of Gordon, you must be an ESPN Insider.
