Best Royals Player 

Alex Gordon

Alex Gordon made a bold comment at the end of the 2010 season. "I'm going to dominate next year," he told a reporter. Royals fans laughed through their tears when they read the statement. The second pick in the 2005 amateur draft, Gordon had struggled to hold down a job at the major league level, much less perform like an All-Star. He was such a disappointment, in fact, that he spent a portion of the 2010 season in the minor leagues, learning a new position and rebuilding his confidence. Written off by many fans before this season began, Gordon surprised everyone but himself by becoming the Royals' most valuable player in 2011. The Nebraska native might even be the best left fielder in the American League. If that's not domination, it's close enough.
