I think what it comes down to (Keeping Hochevar) is that Moore is again being too reliant on what "The scout's eye" tells him on Hochevar.

I understand looking at him from that perspective. I did until this season (of course, his close to the 2011 season fooled me and a lot of other people - there was strong evidence that suggested he had turned the corner). He has continually underperformed his peripherals.

But just like guys who outperform their peripherals, once you reach a certain point you just have to realize that's who he is.

Hochevar should be a stud. He has the frame, the arm and the raw ability to be an extremely good MLB pitcher. But it's not going to happen, especially not in KC.

My stance remains: Whatever Dayton does this offseason, it had better work. THere's really no reason the Royals can't compete within the AL Central, which is an incredibly weak division.
