I'm still waiting the day we get rid of Ponson and Farnsworth.

This shit of "well he didn't have his stuff tonite" has happened about 8 times already.

KC should be about 15-6 now.

agreed. every sensible person in america knew from the start that ponson and farnsworthless were terrible signings. i don't know why the royals organization thought any differently.

Most teams have shitty 5th starters, and Ponson is just keeping the spot warm until Hochevar comes up.

By keeping Hochevar in the minors through the first month, we get to keep him an extra year. I'll take a few spots from Ponson for that.

Kid hasn't done anything yet to make the "keep him another year" thing make any sense. If the organization was worried about this, a better approach would be to sign him to an extension, since it's likely that he'll never be cheaper.

Not all of Ponson's starts have been terrible, but if the team really sacrificed four games for the bottom line, I can't think of anything more chickenshit. That's old school Royals bullshit there.

I think Ponson has been better than expected, certainly not Scott Elarton bad. Going into last night he was a fine 5th starter, now his numbers look bad. He's had three decent starts and two bad ones.

The trouble is we can't afford to just keep losing everytime our 5th guy comes to the mound, or late in the game when the game is close and its time for our worthless set up man to come out and serve up meat balls to the other team. We cant bat ourselves Wins. We need to pitch extremely well and play small ball. We have very limited consistant power from just a few players at most.

If we want to seriously become contenders (yes I said it) we need to make the move that makes the most sense........get rid of Farnsworth and Ponson. I cant even imagine what the Royals team ERA would be without those 2 clowns.



I dunno, I just fuckin hate Farnsworth, my other half as a Cubs fan, I fucking hated this guy when he was in Chicago. I almost had to pull my car over when I listed to 610 the day we signed this piece of shit and for how much we signed him for. I can't believe that the "baseball minds" we have in the front office would even think of signing this guy when avg Joe baseball fan knows that he's a complete train wreck as a pitcher. Jesus.
What a complete waste of a signing.

I'm too hard on Ponson, he's had some good and some really terrible outings, but thats the thing .....hes terribly inconsistant. Always has been. Everywhere he goes, doesn't matter. In NYY he had a 5+ ERA. I dont care if its a 5th starter or a 8th starter in little league thats just fucking terrible. The only reason why I'm not too pissed about it is because of the little money he's making. He's on a minor league contract, which means that A: No one else wanted his ass, because he agreed to sign with one of the worse clubs in MLB for a min deal.

Hochevar needs to be brought up......period.

Not sure what you're trying to say with the first part. I think it's common sense to trade one month of Hochevar at 24 years old for an extra year when he's in his prime in his late twenties. He hasn't done nearly enough to warrant an extension; hell, we just gave Greinke an extension after a year with a sub 4 ERA.

There's just no reason to push him up here right now. Just let him continue to improve and gain confidence, and hopefully he'll be ready to contribute meaningfully this summer. It's not focusing on the bottom line - it's being patient with players and not rushing them. THAT is old school Royals bullshit.

Rushing players was also part of the regular MO, so I also agree with your final sentence. Not sure if this was the case with Hoch, though. Of course, the reason players had to be rushed was that there were no viable alternatives at the ML level, primarily because Glass wasn't spending any money. So, it's a vicious cycle.

As a college pitcher with a year of semi-pro experience, Hochevar should have been ready to compete at the start of the season. Perhaps it will end up being the right move in the long term, but I have a hard time believing he didn't give the club the best chance to win.

Whatever, though. Water under the bridge, with the team still competitive and about to reap some practical value from the move. For the record, the team was late in getting that extension to Greinke, IMO.

i guess i don't have any common sense, cause i have no idea how keeping him in AAA gives him an extra year in his late twenties. please explain.

It has to do with his ML service time, and thus the club's ability to stretch out the time before he hits arbitration and FA.

that does not justify having sidney ponson in the major leagues, though.

thanks for the explanation.

that does not justify having sidney ponson in the major leagues, though.

considering that we are now talking about 1 week, maybe it does. Or at least we need to start someone other than Hochevar.

If we wanted to not care about service time, then he needed to start at the beginning of the season. At this point we are committed and would be stupid to bring him up before the magic date.

In poker tournament terms, this would be like if you had a middle pair of sevens on the flop, someone raised you, you re-raised 95% of what you got, and they called. Maybe you shouldnt have done that, but you cant fold now.

But you would certainly also have to consider the quality of the opponent; i.e., are you facing off against a championship-caliber player or are you taking on a 5-year old who has never played poker before? Also, is the dealer shifty-eyed and keeps winking at your opponent? And what exactly are the two cards in your hand? Are they the other two sevens or could they possibly be a couple of Pokemon character cards?

Hochevar starts today for Omaha.
Might be worth keeping an eye on his pitch count, just in case the Royals are thinking about giving him Wednesday's start in KC.

The runner that scored was given first base when the plate Ump said he was hit by the pitch when it really hit the bat.

nothing wrong with that inning. There's a big difference between electing to steal second when you already have an out, and choosing to let your hitters hit with no out and man on first.

Some of you guys need to find an NL team to cheer for or something, small ball just doesnt play in this league, unless youve got two dominating aces dueling.

I dont really consider stealing second with one out "small ball", thats fine, I just dont like seeing bunting a guy over to second with no out unless the situation practically demands it. (your playing against Greinke, or if its 8th inning, closer coming, tie game, that sort of thing)

I'm not a big fan of running with Bloomquist, but that's not what I'm talking about.

This was a perfect example of Trey's inconsistencies. You can at least make a case for using Bloomquist to bunt Coco over. Late in the game, high-quality closer looming...

Strangely, Hillman loves to sac when it's the 5th or earlier.

We have no argument about the above philosophy.
