  Kansas City Royals - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 1983, the Royals were headed for a second-place finish behind the Chicago White Sox when they were rocked by a drug scandal.
Escalating salaries made it difficult for the Royals to keep their young stars, and the small-market club usually chose to trade players such as Kevin Appier, Johnny Damon and Jermaine Dye, for whatever they could get rather than lose them to free agency.
In 2005, the Royals continued their youth movement, with six of their starting position players, three of their five starting pitchers, and their setup man and closer all under age 30 and one of the smallest payrolls in the major leagues.
