Big announcements! RC adds some serious talent...
This is the Mavericks Stadium vantage point of RC's newest correspondent.
Folks, RC has some excellent news to share. Over the past couple days, we've added two outstanding new correspondents to our rapidly growing roster of RC contributors. The first is Jon Rosen, Director of Broadcasting for the High Desert Mavericks. Jon has offered to take over duties as our left coast correspondent, covering the High Desert Mavericks and the California League.
RC religiously listens to High Desert games over the Internet, and we first made note of Jon last summer, commenting about the excellent job he was doing as the voice of the Mavs. Indeed, RC is convinced he was the best minor league announcer we heard all last season.
Anyhow, as you can imagine, Jon is obviously in a unique position to cover the Mavericks, and he'll provide us with photos and commentary you won't see anywhere else. Here's a little preview of what you can expect from Jon all season, right here on Royals Corner:

This is the first time RC has actually seen what Angel Sanchez looks like.
Jon snapped some shots of the clubhouse jocularity and shenanigans that ensued after the Mavs clinched their division last season.
RC welcomes Jon aboard, and we cannot adequately express our excitement over his addition to our team. We can't wait to see the fascinating content he'll add to the site this season!
RC will look the other way on Kevin's unauthorized use of our logo.
Throughout his distinguished blogging career, Kevin has provided some of the finest Royals commentary anywhere, and we actually credit him with inspiring us to start Royals Corner in the first place. He's written extensively about the Royals for Most Valuable Network, All-baseball.com, and his own excellent site, Kevin's Royals Blog (which holds a permanent spot atop RC's Blogroll of Honor). For months, RC lobbied Kevin to join our team, and we're ecstatic that he's now agreed to do so. Kevin is an outstanding writer whose unique style combines excellent statistical analysis, astute logic, optimism, and a touch of humor, and he'll be a great fit at RC.
Right now, Kevin is planning to submit about a column a week, and he's also going to provide us with original Texas League and Wichita Wranglers photos throughout the season.
RC welcomes our new correspondents, and we pledge to continue searching for ways to provide you with the best Royals coverage available anywhere on the Net. This promises to be an incredible year, and we can't wait for the season to begin!
