I would pull up Davies to pitch in the majors, move Chen to the bullpen, bring up disco, then cut Tejeda and Jamey Wright. But that's just because Omaha has nothing that we want.

If you go down to AA to bring people in, you have to take a look at Holland in the bullpen.

Combine piss poor FA acquisitions and abysmal trades with a touch of unsuccessful drafting (since '05, everything before wasn't even trying, so I'm not counting it), and you get the Royals.

You know things are really, really bad when the beat writer, Dutton, for your team shreds them in a game account. Here's the first half, which contains all of the moments of interest, IMO (http://www.kansascity.com/sports/royals/story/1339114.html):

Watching the Royals these days is like watching a river rise past flood stage. And it’s now eight losses high and climbing after suffering a double-header sweep Tuesday to the Los Angeles Angels.

This was miserable stuff _ 8-5 and 10-2.

Angels starter Ervin Santana lugged a 6.70 ERA into the opener, saw it go up to 6.79, and still _ still! _ handed over a three-run lead when Darren Oliver began the bottom of the seventh inning.

The nightcap was competitive until Juan Cruz reprised his arsonist work from two weekend losses to Tampa Bay in a nightmarish seven-run seventh inning. LA led 3-2 when Cruz replaced Robinson Tejeda with the bases loaded and no outs.

Cruz faced five hitters. Erick Aybar lashed a three-run triple. Bobby Abreu followed with an RBI double _ his third of the game. Mike Napoli flied to right and, presumably, had to buy a round for that sin at some future date.

Gary Matthews Jr. then worked a walk before Cruz concluded his work by surrendered a two-run to Howie Kendrick. Cruz departed to loud boos from the crowd of 23,874 and with the Angels leading 9-2.

LA added another run against John Bale, when first baseman Billy Butler pop-flied a throw over the 6-foot-4 Bale after fielding Robb Quinlan’s soft grounder.

It was all as bad as it sounds. Worse, the river shows no signs of cresting.

The Royals are now 37-56 with 45 losses in their last 64 games. That means they must go 26-43 or better in their remaining 69 games to avoid a fifth 100-loss season in eight years.

And how about this? When Joakim Soria entered for a shake-the-rust inning at the close of the second game, with the Royals trailing by eight runs, the public-address system and video board went into full “Welcome to the Jungle” mode.
