I think I would have just kicked Escobar up to leadoff, flipped Melky and Alex and move everyone else down a spot

Belly may hit like a number 2 or 3 batter, but he sure doesn't run like one. If the Royals do get hits, look for Belly to be causing a stutter in the offense with his way less than average wheels

Like to see Hos and Moose break out soon.

I know they will, but the sooner the better.

Hos always seems to be behind 0-2 in the count lately.

Balk!

I don't think I've ever seen a pitcher throw to third base, but I've seen several runners on first base get picked off after falling for a fake throw to third. How does that ever happen?

Only possible explanation is that they're mentally checked out. Bored? Hung over? Checking out some skirt?

Whatever it is, it's inexcusable.

One of his curveballs was at 66 mph? That's little league speed there

Moose's only RBI all season was his solo HR.

He doesn't exactly strike me as "powerful".

Escobar sure cheats alot towards second. Right handers batting and Francis on the mound you would figure he would have to play more for the hitter pulling the ball. His range is crazy sized

Saul Good
06-22-2011, 09:01 PM
Why in the hell has Gordon not either scored or been thrown out on the bases? He should have gone for the triple with one out or gone for the plate with two outs. Make the first baseman throw you out at the plate. Even if there's only a 40% chance of making it home, that's much more likely than the next batter getting a hit.

Royals aren't going to win many games if they can only score two. Three DP's tonight and they didn't start running until the 9th inning. Yost owes us an apology

Interesting...........

Was in town tonight so I went to the game. Hosmer really needs to learn to wait for his pitch. Once he does that he'll be a great hitter. Great, night, beautiful stadium, but I wish Royals baseball was what it was 25 years ago :( depressing really.
