We're past the date for worrying about service time, and Hosmer's hitting around .400 in AAA. I'd say that the Kila watch is on.

Escobar has got to quit doing that thing where he dives at outside pitches. It's bizarre. I could understand doing it once, but he does it almost every time. It's like he's playing RBI Baseball.

I understand everyone wanting Hosmer up, hell I do too, but since Dayton still feels that he should stay in AAA, what about Robinson? Kila has had his shot and Robinson is more than deserving of his.

(I know others have said the same thing, I just can't figure out why he isn't even in the discussion amongst the Royals brass)

I understand everyone wanting Hosmer up, hell I do too, but since Dayton still feels that he should stay in AAA, what about Robinson? Kila has had his shot and Robinson is more than deserving of his.

If Robinson continues his pace, he'll force the club's hand.

To your edit: same reason Kila wasn't.

chen just has some movement that people can't square up

It's like he's given up on trying to throw hard and just focused on changing speeds and location. Francis is doing the same thing.

On Sunday, Francis's fastballs were 85. Pineda's change was 86.

I can definitely support this view. It's still early as hell, but it's just tough when you glance at AAA stats and see an absolute monster with a golden glove.
Glance at AAA stats last year and Kila looks about as monstrous as a player possible can.

Ichiro Suzuki's career BABIP: .357

Better hitters have better BABIPs. Gordon's is inflated, but it should be above .300 (approx league average) based on the contact he is making.
