This guy is the best Royals player we have had since we dumped the last batch fo All-Stars (Damon, Beltran, Dye). This kid is carrying this team on his shoulders. Bat him 1st or 3rd, play him in LF, CF or RF, move runners, get on base, cross the plate make great defensive plays...this kid does it all and without complaining and puts up the #'s game in and out. Yes he is having a career year. I really like atching this guy play ball and I hope the Royals don't **** up and trade him.

Props to DD for a great weekend of ball.

Jose Guillen!

Kansas City fans are again booing Jose Guillen for not running hard to first or after fly balls in the outfield.


Guillen said they do not know he is playing hurt.


“Some of the fans are yelling at me, ‘Why you not hustle? Why you not hustle?’ Sometimes that gets to your head,” Guillen said. “They can’t see the big (pointing to the wrap around his left thigh). They don’t know how I’m hurting. I’m just trying to help the team.”


Guillen said he re-injured his groin on a fifth inning run-producing single on Saturday against the Rays.

“It was on one swing, a base hit to right, when I was coming out of the box,” Guillen said. “I should have gotten out of the game. I was thinking about winning and I wanted to stay in. Unfortunately it didn’t work out.”


In the seventh, Guillen grounded into a double play with runners on the corners. In the eight, he failed to reach B.J. Upton’s fly ball to shallow right that dropped for a double.


“Losing the game like that, it’s a tough one.” Guillen said of the 5-3 defeat to the Rays. “If I take myself out maybe a lot of you guys (media) ask questions. Either way there is going to be a lot of questions.”


Guillen did not see action in the Royals’ 6-1 victory Sunday over the Rays because of the sore groin.


“I don’t want to try to be a superhero,” Guillen said.

i think people booing Guillen gives you a look at Kansas City being kind of fairweather. something bad happened, they want to boo, maybe they wanted to boo anyway. they just pick him for supposedly not running hard, when he's had nagging leg problems all season that he's playing through.

the fans boo the guy for playing through pain. it's incredible.

The average fan expects you to atleast run out a ball. Even before he was "hurt" He would walk sometimes WALK from right field all the way into the duggout. I know it was frustrating to see a guy who makes that much not even attempt to jog in. I told people around me after the last game it was because he was hurt and one guy said "well then he shouldn't be playing!" it is a catch-22 then because they will call him a wuss for sitting out games. I think overall. One of the things I think over the years is that the SS, 2nd base, 3rd basemen have stayed the same or gotten more athletic where the other places on the field especially where power is at a premium, the speed and quickness of the players has went down. This isn't really directed at guillen, but anyway the average fan sees people getting gunned down in the hole and up the middle because there are alot of players out there clogging up the paths more than in the 80's.

I, for one, don't think an outfielder who has hurt legs should play. Basically the only thing he can do to help is hit a homerun... he has to jog to first... and he can't get to balls in the outfield...

more of a liability... sit out and get healed. There is no shame in that.

they don't know much about the team, or they would know that the team's highest paid player has been hurt all season long.

A fairweather fan is a fan that roots for teams that are playing well.

Being a fairweather or band wagon jumper fan is more popular than being loyal to one team.

alright, dr. dictionary. i mean they are not knowledgeable fans.

sort of like the people who, when a routine fly ball is hit, will make a bunch of noise and jump to their feet thinking it's a home run.

you can tell they don't know much about the game.

I was watching part of the Red Sox/Yankees game the other day and when ManRam was up to bat they mentioned that he stopped running out ground balls 5 years ago. Wow....

If you can MASH, the fans will forgive alot of little things.

Id argue you get alot of those types of fans at almost any ballpark in America.

Baseball by its nature (slow paced) is a very casual, social summertime activity.

He is a good ****ing ball player that we need on this team. What are you going to trade him for and what do you have to put in his place? Was tops in runs scored last year, leads the league with Avg. with RISP. We always cry we need offense and so far him and Guillen are pretty much it save Butler's late splurge.

I'd have to ask if you were going to trade to DeJesus what you are smoking?

Of course if you really think we should you will probably bitch about it if we do after you see how much we lost. I am not calling him a 5-tool player but he is a starter in the OF on any team in this league.

Take a deep breath and step away from the Planet.

DDJ is a solid ML player, as I stated in my last post. There is no one on this team, however, that should be considered untouchable. This doesn't mean that the value of some players isn't a lot higher than others.

DDJ can definitely be a part of the future, but if someone came with a great offer...

I never say anyone is untouchable but you better be bringing in some super-fly hellatiously good player if you trade DD. And at this point with the stage of this team and where he is in his career why trade him? He fits on this team, he can help this team win so why not?

We agree, but I'm weary of talking about KC having a collection of decent or nice ballplayers. I'm ready for KC to have AND KEEP a legit. star. To get this, it might take trading away talent, especially if the team continues to have poor luck (skill?) drafting.

Oh, and Guillen is hurt and should probably take some time off.

HANG ON! "Decent or nice"? DD is above decent or nice. When you lead the league in runs scored on this anemic team that tells me you know how to get shit done at the plate and on the bases. When you lead the league in Avg. with RISP that tells me you are the best in the league and not choking when it matters. He makes great play after great play in the OF and can play all fields. He is not a cancer in the locker room, he is a fan favorite and he is not above the game.

You put some other players around him and he is much better than Damon if you ask me. You put him on the Yankees and he has better numbers than Damon.

Now everyone bitches cause we traded Damon and now we are talking about trading DD who is better imo?

Damon is faster, weaker arm and weaker bat. Nothing more than an over-powered Joey Gathright swing. DD makes just as many plays in the OF as Damon.

So I give up. When we have that kind of talen and people are ready to trade it away then all I can say is don't ever expect to win anything ever. We can't keep trading away our good players. Paticualrly ones we grow.

Moore was in the radio yesterday saying 60% of this team has to be guys that came up through our system. We have 7 right now. And you want to trade the best one?

DeezNutz
07-28-2008, 01:24 PM
Damon is faster, weaker arm and weaker bat.

DeJesus is in his 5th year with the Royals. Here's what Damon did in his fifth year:

.307 AVG .379 OBP .477 SLG 14 HR 77 RBI 36/42 SB

This is a very similar line to DDJ, except the stolen base numbers, which are pretty important for a lead-off batter, so to claim that Damon had a weaker bat is false.

DDJ is a good player, and that's what I mean when I say "decent" or "nice," the type of player you want on your team, but if I could parlay a good player for a great one, I would.

He does not come anywhere close to leading the league in runs scored. In fact, Gordon has scored just as many times as him this season with far worse hitters behind him. He is in a virtual dead heat with Butler for poorest base runner on the team and has zero base stealing instincts. I can't believe I'm actually agreeing with Deez ;) here but Dejesus is just a nice player. He isn't a star and if someone wants to offer a couple of good prospects we should jump at the chance.

Insane isn't it? You have the leagues best hitter with RISP and you want to trade that? Might as well see if the Twins want to trade Mauer? I mean after all 5 HR's or so a season from a catcher? Who cares if the guy is automatic? He is a catcher and should be smashing the ball.

Crazy crazy crazy.

I have a lot of faith in Hillman/Moore. They really seem to know the game.

I, for one, don't think an outfielder who has hurt legs should play. Basically the only thing he can do to help is hit a homerun... he has to jog to first... and he can't get to balls in the outfield...

more of a liability... sit out and get healed. There is no shame in that.

agreed.

Dejesus' value has never been higher. Maybe we can get a couple prospects since we aren't competing for awhile

when will you people realize that the royals will NEVER compete if they keep trading good players. was trading dye, beltran, and damon not enough for you? now they have to throw out dejesus too, since he is having a good year?

Too bad he's not tougher, like Ross Gload.

DeJesus lead in so many categories, he must have had a lot of No. 2 pencils.

He has a career OPS of 104, it's 119 this year. He's a nice player, but that's about it.

You are still wrong. He has never lead the league, or been in the top 10 of the league, in runs scored.

Yes you are right. He was at one point in the season in the tops. None the less he still plated 100+ runs as a lead off guy on a shitty team. That says a lot about him. And now this year he is knocking guys in at a better clip than anyone. Hard to trade someone like that and convince your fans you are trying to better the team.

What is DDJ improving every year? His Home Runs and RBI's, awesome. The year isn't over yet, I'd wait for his AVG. and SLG. and everything else to slow down. If not, sue me. And talk about competing..who else are we supposed to trade to get talent? What am I talking about, nobody even wants DDJ.

DDJ is a solid player, but i would trade him in a heartbeat for a Braun type prospect in AA

I'm still saying the person with the most trade value on our roster is Mahay. And yesterdays outing certainly didn't hurt that! :)
