A NEW POWER PLAYER IN THE HUNT FOR THE ROYALS

          Lamar Hunt said Sunday that he has expressed interest
     in buying the Royals, according to Joe Posnanski of the K.C.
     STAR.  Hunt: "It's very preliminary.  We've approached the
     Royals so we can see the numbers.  That's all.  We want to
     hear about it.  I'm not at all familiar with the process of
     the sale or with the Royals, so this is just a first look. 
     We'll see what happens" (K.C. STAR, 11/10).  
          GREEN DAY: Prospective local bidder Jerry Green
     "bypassed" a Friday deadline to submit a preliminary
     application to buy the Royals, according to Charles Crumpley
     of the K.C. STAR.  Green said that his unidentified partner
     "questions whether the team is worth the $75M set as the
     "minimum bid."  Green also said that he "has begun talking
     with a different group that had expressed interest" in the
     team, but that he and his original partner "still might
     bid."  The only pre-applicant publicly known is a group led
     by Bobby and George Brett (K.C. STAR, 11/8).
