One of the things I love about The Bill James Handbook is its "extra" stats, most of which you won't find anywhere else. The following are a list of interesting stats and some that pertain to both the Cubs and Royals found in the book, mostly in the leaders section at the end.
In other notes, you may have noticed that I left off 20 year-old right-hander Zack Greinke from my analysis of the Royals rotation. While he is certainly the top prospect in the Royals organization (10 walks in 130 innings last year) and perhaps the top pitching prospect in baseball, he struggled a bit in Wichita last season, although I'm told his first starts were the roughest, at which point he settled down. I would expect him to start in Omaha and be called up if the trio of Snyder, Asencio, and Gobble struggle. However, if he really impresses in spring training and the others struggle, it's just possible he could break with the club but I doubt it.
