Yes, we know that this is taking a while!
As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team. That being said, we have existing Top 50 lists out and we always consistently look to update them when we can and based on necessity. As such, we are very happy to present our pre-2022 revision of our top 50 Kansas City Royals.
As for all of our top 50 players in baseball we look at the following:
1. Advanced Statistics.
2. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the American League.
3. Playoff accomplishments.
4. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.
The Royals did not make the 2021 Playoffs, nor did anyone crack the top 50, however there was movement among active Royals players.
As always, we present our top five.
1. George Brett
4. Kevin Appier
5. Amos Otis
You can find the entire list here.
Multi-time All-Star Catcher, Salvador Perez moved up to #10 from #13.
Second Baseman, and two-time All-Star, Whit Merrifield climbed to #24 from #27.
We welcome your input and comments and as always, we thank you for your support.
