C4 FRIDAY, APRIL 6, 2001 THE SAUNA JOURNAL HOME OPBUER Fans optimistic regarding Royals' closer Hernandez, but getting to that point key T PRO FOOTBALL By DOUG TUCKER The Associated Press K ANSAS CITY, Mo. — To patient and frustrated Kansas City fans, it all sounds so very simple. The Royals blew a whopping 29 saves last year. But they still won 77 games. Now if imported bullpen ace Roberto Hernandez can only cut that total in half, Kansas City will contend for postseason action for the first time since 1985. If only things were really that simple.' The Royals, who make their home debut on today in a 1:05 p.m. start against Minnesota after being swept three games in New York, will first have to play as well in other facets of the game as they did last year "Everybody is maybe overly excited cause we've added a closer," said Tony Muser, starting his fourth full season as manager. If he is effective at all, the nine-year veteran Hernandez is certain to be an instant fan favorite in a city whose team has blown 56 saves the past two years and wasted career offensive years by several position players. Hernandez converted 32 of 40 save opportunities with Tampa last year while compiling a 4-7 record and a 3.19 ERA. "We still have to do things right everywhere else and be in position to hand Roberto the ball and the lead. "I'm not going to tell you Roberto is the last key But there is a sense of confidence that we have somebody who's been there before." Weather permitting, Brian Meadows (13-10 last year with a 5.13 ERA) will start for the Royals. Going for the "We still have to do things right everywhere else and be in position to hand Roberto the ball and the lead." Tony Muser Royals manager Royals home opener Twins at Royals, 1:05 p.m. (Fox Sports Net). Twins will be Joe Mays (7-15, 5.56). Forecasters are predicting possibly heavy thunderstorms late this afternoon. The sellout crowd will get its first look at colorful large banners hanging around the stadium's exterior featuring all 22 members of the Royals Hall of Fame. Then on all four major stadium ramps are banners featuring the current Royals. A large display noting George Brett's entry in the Hall of Fame has al> so been added. "I think the banners really look outstanding," said Herk Robinson, the Royals' executive vice president. "This is in line with what we're trying to do — to have more involvement with the fans, make them feel like they're a part of the game." The Royals are also trying to involve former players in the community and the club. An alumni association has been established, headed by former Royals broadcaster Fred White. Whether the Royals contend or not remains to be seen. But coming out of spring training, the Royals seemed to have greater confidence. "Players in their early years, I don't care what kind of ability t^iey have or where they were drafted, they have to prove to themselves that they belong in the major leagues," Robinson said. "It's when they reach that fourth, fifth or sixth year when they know they can compete and they expect to be successful. "We have a lot of players who are in that position." Beuerlein visits with Chiefs Former Panther latest in parade of QBs KG has had an interest in By DOUG TUCKER The Associated Press KANSAS CITY, Mo. — As the only team in the NFL with a "vacancy" sign at quarterback, the Kansas Cit:^ Chiefs are trying with all their might to keep from getting frustrated. It's tough. Steve Beuerlein, the latest BEUERLEIN ^ parade of possibilities the Chiefs have talked to or been spurned by couldn't do much but go to dinner when he visited this week. Coming off shoulder and elbow surgery, Beuerlein won't be able to play at full bore for at least a month. "It's going to take a little more time before I can start throwing and show them what I can do," said Beuerlein, who threw 36 touchdown passes for Carolina in 1999, his finest season in a 14-year careen J'But I feel great." At least Beuerlein gave Kansas City the courtesy of a visit. Shortly after Elvis Grbac threw the Chiefs for a big surprise and opted to become a free agent, Doug Flutie and Rob Johnson signed with other teams after promising to talk to the Chiefs. "If you let it be frustrating, it is," said offensive coordinator Al Saunders. "But it really is not in that as a coach, you have the mentality that you work with what you have." Until Grbac decided to leave and eventually sign with Balti- T HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETICS Chiefs sign cornerback Crockett By The Associated Press KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Cornerback Ray Crockett, a free agent who spent the last seven seasons with the Denver Broncos, has agreed to a six-year contract with the Kansas City Chiefs, president and general manager Carl Peterson announced Thursday. With the Chiefs having dropped the veteran cornerback James Hasty in a salary cap move, Crockett will bolster an inexperienced secondary and reduce the need for Kansas City to look for a quarterback in this year's draft. Hasty, 35, a two-time Pro Bowl choice, had been with Kansas City since 1995. Crockett, 34, is entering his 13th NFL season. He played at Baylor and spent five years with the Detroit Lions before joining the Broncos as a free agent in 1994. "Ray is a very talented, experienced competitor who will provide valuable guidance to the young cornerbacks on our roster," Peterson said. Greg Robinson, the Chiefs' new defensive coordinator, came to the job after holding the same position with the Broncos. Crockett has shown big-play potential, returning three interceptions and two fumble recoveries for touchdowns. One of those was a 50-yard return against the Chiefs on a fumble recovery in 1995. For his career he has 813 tackles, 656 of them solos, and 33 interceptions. Last season he appeared in 13 games for the Broncos, starting 11, with 32 tackles and four interceptions. He was a member of the Denver teams that won two straight Super Bowls and while with the Broncos was named AFC defensive player of the week three times. more, the Chiefs seemed set at quarterback. The lanky 30- year-old appeared to be rounding into maturity as an NFL passer. He threw for a team- record 504 yards against Oakland during last season's 7-9 campaign. But he skipped, and the Chiefs have been scrambling ever since. Mark Brunell looked like a good possibility before he re-signed with Jacksonville, once more sending the Chiefs back to square one. There has also been speculation the Chiefs might take a look at Denver free agent Brian Griese and former Dallas starter Troy Aikman. Trent Green, Kurt Warner's backup with the St. Louis Rams, could eventually be the man. Saunders and new Chiefs head coach Dick Vermeil had Green ticketed to be their starter until he went down with an injury just before the 1999 season and have always been impressed with his talents. The Rams have reportedly demanded the Chiefs' first- round draft pick in any deal for Green, but the Chiefs have balked. Something could be worked out before the NFL draft in two weeks. In the meantime, the quest goes on. "The mentality of this organization is to look at everybody who might be available," said Saunders. "We might bring in some guys from the XFL, the Arena League, the USFL, the Canadian League. Wherever we can find them." They might also go with Todd Collins, a former starter with Buffalo who spent the past two seasons carrying a clipboard around Arrowhead Stadium as the Chiefs' No. 3. "He's an experienced guy,";'^' Saunders said. "Todd's been«^ working real hard on the field" and in the classroom. If you let those things that are out of,,, your control affect you, then you're worried about everything every day." ' ^ Beuerlein, who worked out' with the Chiefs in 1993 before they traded for Joe Montana,^" would love to take that vacancy sign off the quarterback spot. But, dogged by injuries and a„_ weak running game last year,*"; he was sacked a league-high 62™ .times and released after thre&i; years with Carolina. "I think they're very interested in me," Beuerlein said Thursday "They know I'm very i interested in being a part of this organization. Whether it all unfolds that way, we'll see. I ' hope it does."
