He has a shit ton of talent, actually. Far more than Suppan. The problem with Davies is that he's a mental midget on the mound. He's the type of player that Split and Quiz would have beat the shit out of in the clubhouse back in the day.

I'd give him a go in the bullpen first. Maybe in short stints he can dial up his fastball into the mid 90s and gain some confidence there. I don't ever see him as a viable starting major league pitcher though.

If you had made that bet at that exact point in the season, you would have won. So what? It's still a stupid bet.

That is .263 baseball which projects to a team going 43-119. I will let anyone pick 3 teams to follow for the next 19 games. If any of those 3 go 5-14 or worse, I will pay.

BTW, the Royals are about to open a home-stand with. 8 games against Seattle and Cleveland. If we split that home-stand, we would have to go 1-11 against Texas, Cleveland, Minnesota, and Baltimore.

I thought you were expressing general optimism that this team can't do something really stupid, like lose a lot of games after an encouraging start. What are the ODDS that at THIS MOMENT the team goes EXACTLY 5-14 over its next 19 games? Probably pretty low. If they go 6-13, YOU WIN, SAUL! CONGRATS!

I'm encouraged so far.

This team took 3 out of 4 from a decent Angels team.
They split two against a good White Sox team.
Then they went on the road and took 2 out of 3 on the road at what should be a decent Tigers team and split 2 with the always-contending Twins.

You can't argue with that. And we haven't even starting playing weak teams like the Red Sox yet. :D

I'd take those numbers from Gordon in a heartbeat. If he can turn into that guy year in and year out, that's one spot to cross of the list. I'm pretty sure we've got a keeper in Butler. It's too early to say for sure, but Escobar looks good. Hopefully he can hit at the ML level.

That would make three solid everyday players out of nine. Maybe we get lucky and either Melky, Kili, or Francouer will turn into someone who can hit .270 with 19 bombs as well.

What's the scouting report on Seattle? As I understand it, they're probably the worst team we've played to date. This home stand is a good opportunity for us to stack up some wins IMO.

They have terrible hitting, but above average pitching and defense. Luckily for us, their offense is so bad that it's unbelievable.

We did good against them last year with a worse team, and even better, no Davies in this series.

I like our chances. The thing about the Royals this year is I think we finally have the right mix of young guys and veterans. And the clubhouse from what I understand has a much, much better attitude brought by people like Frenchy and Milky and Treanor. I like what I have seen so far. We have really been in every game and a couple we lost we lost of our own accord, not by getting our ass handed to us like usual.

If Gordon and Getz keep hitting our offense I think is scrappy enough to go against the best pitching and defense. We literally don't have a weak spot per sey in our lineup save Avilles and he did better today. Everyone from 1-9 is hitting and different guys are coming up with the key hits and not just waiting for someone else to be the hero. That is what is the most fun.

Royals are :

#5 in the ML's in runs scored
#3 in hits
#5 in RBI's
#4 in TB's
#7 in BB's (shocking improvement)
#22 in SO's (shocking improvement)
#1 in SB's (shocking improvement)
#5 in OBP (shocking imprvement)
#11 in SLG
#5 in AVG


And that is in all of baseball, not just the AL

I know we are only 10 games in but those offensive stats are great. They say hitting usually catches up to pitching as the season goes on. If that holds true we could be an offensive surprise this year.

I hope you're right because we have the Rangers coming up and I think they are going to kill us. Although Josh Hamilton will be out. I will be at the game next weekend on Friday and Sunday.

Just going off what I have seen so far this year, I am not worried about getting into a shootout with a team. We may not be hitting a ton of HR's but we are running the bases well and generating a lot of scoring opportunities.

Texas has scored all of 4 more runs than us so far this year. And while they ahve hit more HR's than us, we have more doubles and overall hits than they do. Should make for a good series.

Having a coach with some credibility helps a lot as opposed to a guy from Japan. Plus getting rid of the bad attitudes on the team I think has gone a long way as well.

This is huge. Yost isn't perfect, but he's EASILY the most qualified manager the Royals have had in damn near forever.

I predict the Royals to be 5 games under .500 by the 30 game mark of the season.

I predict that your prediction will not come to pass.
