Well right now Kendall is a type B free agent, so that's a reason to keep him I guess.

message to Bob Davis: you are not permitted to excitedly say that someone "cranks one" unless it is a no-doubt homer.

Mecca

He forgot that Seattle is a big stadium.

At this point I'm all for giving other guys a chance at first, Butler in the field is just disturbing, it's hard to field grounders with a beer belly.

There's a long drive to deep left............waaaay back......and caught by the second baseman

end of the Omaha game is a bit weird. In the 9th inning, they decided to give up the designated hitter, 1B moved to the mound to pitch

When you're getting pounded by Seattle that is not a good sign at all.

CaliforniaChief
08-06-2010, 10:20 PM
They've swung at the first pitch something like 5 times so far and reached safely 4 times, including Langerhans' shot. Perhaps Zack can adjust before his contract ends.

Why are they having this Billy/Kila who plays 1st debate? Isn't it pretty apparent to anyone with eyes that Billy Butler shouldn't be in the field unless it's absolutely unavoidable?

Sure-Oz
08-06-2010, 10:39 PM
Butler is average on his best day, he is a DH, period

Al Bundy
08-06-2010, 10:41 PM
Having Kendall and Bloomquist in the lineup together always equals a loss... those 2 suck.

CaliforniaChief
08-06-2010, 10:43 PM
And ultimately, 1B is Eric Hosmer's position. I think they felt guilty having such a young guy being the DH. If Kila can produce, let him play 1B every night and let Billy be the DH. That's his role from now on.

Sure-Oz
08-06-2010, 10:44 PM
Zack pitching like he dont give a fugg..cmon man

Mecca
08-06-2010, 10:44 PM
If Kila could actually develop into a hitter then Hosmer could end up in the OF, hes actually capable defensively.

So according to Ryan and Frank, zack is hurting david and daytons feelings?

that said maybe zack shouldn't have said shit but who knows

I'm sure Zack really cares about the feelings of the guys who he basically railed for not putting together a better team.

he is what he is. I might wonder about it with other players, but this isn't Zack finally getting annoyed enough to tactlessly gripe.

There are two things that have always been true about him. 1) he hates interviews and will try to avoid them. 2) When he does decide to talk to the press, he has no filter. You ask him a question, you don't get a cliche, you get the honest truth out of him whether you are ready to hear it or not.

I dont think he's sending a message. He decided to talk to a reporter, the reporter asked a question, he answered it.

Zack certainly showing he's interested tonight, i mean 2 hits to chone figgins

It's the Royals and at that time they had even less to be excited about than they do now, it's not like they were the Yankees that could go yea we'll replace you for being a fuckup now get out.

Why is Willie Bloomquist on an AL team I could see his value to an NL team but an AL team?

I think games like this just show that the Royals are streaking, streaking for the #1 pick.

It's always negative with you. Everything that goes well is some offshoot of some other negative. I think some teams would've handled it well, some wouldn't. There are a lot of hardasses out there who don't like quitters... Mike Shanahan types, if you will. It doesn't always work out. It's not like anybody coddled Roscoe Crosby when he threw his career away.

heh, he's not that negative.

Maybe on this board, but on other Royals boards there are some pricks who ostensibly are Royals fans, but either for laughs or because of emotional baseball scarring in early Royal fan-dom, they are so aggressively negative that its almost a parody.

Yeah, I would be angry most of the time if I was forced to post over at Royals Corner. But at least they could tell me the lower intestinal UZR of the pancakes I had for breakfast while torturing Emil Brown with bees Wicker Man style as all the women wore Aaron Guiel masks.

I haven't even been all that negative about anything in awhile, I don't think pointing out that the Royals stuck with Grienke because they had nothing to lose being a bad team is being negative.

I don't think saying the Royals minors look really good but until Moore figures out how to actually sign productive major league players I'll remain skeptical of their ability to compete in a few years.
