 SPRINGDALE, Ark. (AP) - David Glass expects the Kansas City Royals to be competitive this season and is hopeful the team can have its first winning season since 2003.
The Royals owner, who attended a stop Monday on the club's caravan near his home in northwest Arkansas, praised general manager Dayton Moore and said the offseason trades that secured pitchers James Shields and Ervin Santana were part of Kansas City's ``overall plan.''
Glass hopes the revamped pitching staff can improve on last season, when the Royals starters compiled a 5.01 ERA - fifth-worst in the big leagues.
Moore traded top prospect Wil Myers among others to Tampa Bay in order to acquire Shields and Wade Davis, a move that followed the acquisition of Santana from the Los Angeles Angels.
