6-2, Bannister pitched great yet again. Peralta and now Gobble are finishing things up.

A 4 run lead is hardly a spanking. But I'll take it...

If we can ever learn to win in April we will contend for the division

Should Brian Bannister win Rookie of the Year? I say yes.

He probably should but since he plays for the Royals he'll most likely be passed over. If they give it to a pitcher they'll give it to Dice K in Boston. :shake:

Bigger market, double the strikeouts, couple more wins. Bannister won't be 'sexy' enough despite winning 10 games with KC, of all teams, and posting an ERA (so far) nearly a half-point lower.

Shame Alex Gordern started so horribly and/or that Billy Butler didn't get a full season.

Kind of weird to have young talent that can actually do something.

The Royals have started to be a little thorn in the Tigers side the past year or so.

And they could quite possibly be a little more pained in the ass next year than they are this year....

Unfortunately, one of those thorns cost us David Price.

I really think Gordon would have been better suited if he had played the first couple of months in Omaha. None the less I'm kinda shocked that he's not doing as well as I thought he'd be doing.
I figured by now he'd at least be batting .270-.280. With around 20-25 hr's and 70-80 RBI's.

I am, however, glad they kept him on the big team (since he started here, I'm not arguing he shouldn't have started in AAA). I don't think he needed the Teahen treatment. He clearly was over his head the first two months, apparently not ready at all, but he's strong enough to have worked through it and he may well be a better player in the long run. He's experienced failure at the professional level, That can sometimes be an incredibily difficult lesson. He's had some success after, which is another valuable thing to go through.

We'll see how Butler does with his first extended slump, whenever that happens. It's a part of development.

It's nice to have guys to look forward to in the future that you don't have to convince yourself they'll be good, drink some koolade.

BTW,
It looks like Burgos might be headed for Tommy John surgery. I think Dayton got the better end of that deal.

Good trivia question tonight on the radio broadcast: Who was the only grandfather in major league history to hit a home run?

I really don't know, but I'll guess Rickey Henderson. I know he married someone he met in high school and that he has a few kids. Did those kids have kids early enough? He played in the majors until he was 44--and hit a couple of home runs in his final season.

If not, I give up (and want the answer!)
