    C - Mike MacFarlane - solid catcher; the team has never had a super one

    1B - Mike Sweeney - drove in more than 140 runs at his peak with a .300+ average and 20+ homers

    2B - Frank White - played with the team throughout all of its best years and performed in a variety of rles, even hitting cleanup in the 1985 World Series

    3B - George Brett - barely beats out Joe Randa and Alex Gordon

    SS - Freddie Patek - long-time Royal SS with a great glove

    LF - Willie Wilson - played in left while Amos Otis manned center field; probably the fastest man in baseball when the '80s began

    CF - Amos Otis - Carlos Beltran was better at his peak, but Beltran was at his best for only 1.5 seasons (he was traded in mid-2004) with the Royals, while Otis spent all of his best years with Kansas City

    RF - Jermaine Dye - no, he didn't play with them for a very long time, but he's the best guy of whom I can think

    DH - Hal McRae - longtime Royal leader like Brett and White who was better than White but not as good as Brett

    SP - Bret Saberhagen - won 2 Cy Youngs with the Royals, which accounts for every Cy Young that any Royal has ever won with the team, and won the 1985 World Series MVP, which accounts for every World Series MVP that any Royal has ever won

    SP - Charlie Liebrandt - big winner for the Royals in the '80s whose World Series failures (0 wins, 2 famous losses with Atlanta) have overshadowed his regular-season greatness

    SP - Dennis Leonard - 20-game winner for the Royals bak in the '70s

    SP - Paul Splittorf - ace pitcher for the first Royals playoff teams

    SP - Jose Rosado - 2-time All-Star for KC in the late '90s whose numbers looked worse than they were because of bad run support and a big offensive era

    RP - Dan Quisenberry - may even qualify for the list of best closers ever for any tea,

    RP - Jeff Montgomery - sub-2.00 ERA in 1989, several seasons with 30+ saves in the '90s; played for the Royals throughout the team's disastrous 1990s

    RP - Mark Davis - no good with the Royals, but, when they signed him, he was the reiging NL Cy Young Award-winner, and he can be a lefty specialist
