The official WTF was Jose Guillen thinking on the base path thread would've been more appropriate.

I don't think it makes any difference who starts the game thread anymore. They're on the road, so they're losing whoever does it (or doesn't do it).

They'll set the franchise record in a couple hours.

Nah, it's no big deal. The Royals were on quite a streak until my game thread two months ago. pissed off a lot of Royals fans with that thread. it doesn't matter though, you're right.

They are playing fairly miserable baseball right now. It's 2-0, but they should have 4 or 5 runs.

This team makes it really hard for me to be a fan.

Kansas City acquires Minor League infielder Juan Rivera

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (June 6, 2008) -- The Kansas City Royals have traded shortstop Angel Berroa and cash to the Los Angeles Dodgers for Minor League infielder Juan Rivera.
Rivera, a 21-year-old from San Pedro de Macoris, D.R., appeared in 10 games with the Great Lakes (Mich.) Loons of the Midwest League in 2008, compiling a .241 average (7-for-29) with 3 RBIs. He signed with the Dodgers as a non-drafted free agent on July 21, 2003. Rivera owns a .248 career average with 8 home runs and 71 RBIs in five Minor League seasons. He will report to the Class A Burlington Bees.

Berroa, a 30-year-old native of Santiago, D.R., batted .291 with 10 home runs, 27 RBIs, and 34 runs in 51 games for the Omaha Royals in 2008. Los Angeles has assigned Berroa to their Triple-A affiliate, the Las Vegas 51's.

Pena in for the 8th. This ticks me off. Defensive replacements shouldn't come in until the 9th, unless the team has a huge lead. Call me crazy, but it might be nice to have Aviles batting in the top of the 9th instead of the automatic out.

The Head Coach at Nebraska isn't doing anything at the moment. Anderson was also the hitting coach with the Huskers when Gordon was there. He's mentioned that the Royals have him all messed up and unnatural at the plate.:spock:
I would tend to believe him.

I never saw much of Gordon in college. Does his approach look a lot different? I know his stance is the similar, if not the same.

Gordon always falls behind in counts as well and then battles back to ground out or strike out....

No power and the pitches he spoils probably had potential to be bombs or doubles...

He has a pretty swing, i just don't think he's adjusting accordingly at all....i have high hopes for this guy, he was as cant miss as any prospect in the game

The only time I get to see him is highlights on Baseball tonight. Lincoln and Omaha get the games. Here where I live we get the Rockies. But they were talking about him the other day on Husker sports nightly with Anderson and he was saying that the Royals hitting coach or whom ever has him looking awkward at the plate. Said he would probably have to call Alex when he had a chance to and chat. See what was up and all.
From what I can see he doesn't look the same. He should at least be hitting doubles and driving in runs like a mofo. Seems like all he's getting are singles anymore. :hmmm:

He still is. Maybe he needs to be down with Billy for a couple of weeks to get some confidence back. Baseball players can be so mental sometimes. :spock:

I agree he is still one of the best prospects around as is butler, but maybe it is the confidence...

I think many including myself expected him to be lighting up pitching and having alot of doubles

And Gordon is still the type to do what the coach tells him to do. Maybe he needs to tell the Royals hitting coach to f*ck off and do what he's used to.

DeezNutz

I've mentioned this before, but the biggest problem I see with Gordon is that he's trying to pull everything. Opposing pitchers have been pitching him outside all year, and he hasn't been content to drive the ball to the opposite field.

Some of this could be that he's trying too hard to be the #3 hitter on a team with no power. Think about how guys like A-Rod and Griffey came up. They were batting 6 and 7 for a couple of years, establishing their confidence and a consistent approach at the plate. Unfortunately, Gordon hasn't had this luxury.

Teahen's power this year emerged once he started being content taking the ball the other way and not trying to do too much. The homeruns are the result of good swings--line drives that just keep going. Gordon should be trying to do the same thing.
