Kila has no future here. He'll either do well enough to have trade value, or he'll be waived when Hosmer is ready.

I guess if no one grabs him off waivers then he can take over for Hosmer in Omaha, but I doubt he'll be in our system at the end of the year.

This afternoon, Kietzman was bitching about the way Escobar throws the ball, complained that he "slings" it too much. I wanted to puke.

He may already be the best fielding SS the Royals have ever had.

Freddie Patek was an outstanding defensive SS.

Here's an interesting article by Bill James that talks about Patek quite a bit. According to this, he was above average but not great. He's certainly the best of the bunch as far as the Royals are concerned.

When Hoch is rolling, he's very efficient. His problem is that he can give up a crooked number very quickly. To his credit, he's been very good at mitigating the damage this year other than 1 inning.
