SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) — Mike Matheny thought highly of the Kansas City Royals when his St. Louis Cardinals faced them in their annual interleague series. Now that he’s managing the Royals, he’s equally as impressed.

“I always had a lot of respect for them,” Matheny said Friday. “It’s how you’d want an organization to be. It’s been great to see how people think about the development process, the way they’re going about trying to create a winning atmosphere.”

“It’s fun to be a part of it and you know they’ve been there and done that and building it up to be there again,” he said.
