Larew on the mound.

Top of the 1st ends with a terrible and very, VERY delayed called strike 3, well below the knees, on DDJ.

Aviles has some of the worst hitting mechanics I've ever seen from a ML player. Steps in the bucket every, single, time. Kendall can't hit. And our 3-hole hitter's career high in HRs is 13.

Yost was asked about it last night. Said that Kendall is the "perfect 2-hole hitter" because he makes consistent contact and will move runners.

Meanwhile, since moving to the 2 spot, he's hitting .190/.250ish/.206.

Bru-taaaal. Many of us considered Pena Jr. an automatic out, and now we have Pena v.2.0.

Changing my stance:

If we can, we absolutely need to move DeJesus for high-quality prospects. We can't have a fucking corner outfielder who tops out at 13 HRs. If we're going to play him in CF, I'm better with it, but his glove doesn't ideally play there.

His value will never be better. Make the deal; it's the right move.

petegz28
06-22-2010, 05:42 PM

Davies needs to be traded, sent down, or released. And Bannister is on the clock.

Sorry, dude. Corner outfielders with no pop don't play. I'm tired of watching a collection of light-hitting pussies. If we can get value for someone, we need to do it.

I wouldn't pay $6 mill for a 13 HR corner outfielder...and i agree, 3 prospects in return probably a solid B+ and 2 c's will do it

I don't think we'll get a superb prospect in return but someone who could be pretty good

Sure-Oz

DDJ is solid, but he is not a game changing franchise player that some of us think he is....he is just a piece on any team, a solid piece for sure but not worth big signing money in the royals payroll

DeezNutz
06-22-2010, 05:58 PM

He steps consistently to the third-base side, away from the pitcher. Classic bucket-stepper. Now that he's been in the league for another year, I'm going to be surprised if he doesn't end up getting exposed.

Hope I'm wrong, but there is a reason why he was never considered a legit prospect.

Agreed, Chen has earned a spot for now. Davies hasn't and Banny certainly acts if he is mentally weak

Sadly, probably at least. I'm going to be pleasantly surprised if the team is able to overcome the hype of facing the HOF tomorrow afternoon, and we're currently laying down like the French national team.

Moustakas 3B: (.355/.421/.704 at Class AA) Just this guy's last name has "future star" written all over it. Standing 5-foot-11, weighing 230 pounds, KC's third baseman of soon would give the Royals one of the best young corner combos (with Billy Butler(notes)) in the majors. He's batting .422 with runners in scoring position. Say it with me: "Mooooooose!"

Epic game by Kendall.

I blame him far, far more for failing to advance runners with 0 outs in his last AB, which would have resulted in a run on the DeJesus grounder to 2B, than for failing in the 9th.

Again, this sack of shit should not be in position to get this many ABs in a game.

Eric Patterson-OF- Athletics Jun. 22 - 7:28 pm et

Athletics designate OF Eric Patterson for assignment.
The Athletics needed to clear a spot for Coco Crisp, so Patterson gets squeezed. The 27-year-old outfielder has a nice an intriguing power-speed combo, however he was batting just .204 with a 31/7 K/BB ratio over his first 103 at-bats this season.

Wasn't he a 2b once? Interest in the A's trash?

Kendall might be the most impressive thief in ML baseball history. This year, his worth at the plate is -8 runs. But his low point came in '07 when he was in Oakland, getting paid $12.8M, and worth -24 runs. Indeed, he's the "perfect 2-hole" hitter.

Remember, though, True Blue fans, this is an upgrade to Buck and Olivo, since they were really the problems (and not, at least, average catchers, as some of us said).

Trust the process.
