We are definitely going to the playoffs in 2014.

Coach Self would ask him why he didn’t make curfew and he’d say, “Because the club was crackin’!” Everyone would laugh and he’d make B-Rush run a little bit.

Per MLBTradeRumors

An AL general manager praised the Orioles' trade for David Lough, noting that "he can do everything that Nate McLouth does. He might end up being an even better hitter than McLouth.”

I disagree we haven't had pitchers like that in Kansas City for a decade and look what happened we were above 500

Can we give them Bubba and Zimmer instead of Salvy?

And why didn't we make the playoffs? Because we lacked the hitting. Look, I'm not saying to ignore pitching, but hitting is very important, too. Losing a game 1-0 really sucks, especially for the pitcher.

Because we ran out French and Getz far too long and it took Hosmer 3 months to hit worth a shit. Infante and Aoki are major upgrades to what we ran out there last year and I'm expecting Hosmer to not take 3 months to start hitting this year. Also if Moose struggles we have a possible backup plan in place to replace his hole in the lineup.

I would love to have Price, but I don't think we're desperate enough to give the house away to make it happen. I see that more as a mid-season trade.

Hope Royals have a fantastic year. Damnet and make the playoffs.

Most likely playing at least 18 holes 5 times per week, so not likely in the dugout.

Agreed. For those fretting about the offense, don't forget we've had solid lineups while trotting absolute shit to the mound and came up even worse results and being competitive in winning the division.

The pickups they've made I think will add some stability to our lineup. Last year was a combination of guys who had their slumps which was compounded by having at least 3 guys day in and day out who were worthless at the plate leaving little room for error. In turn, the guys who were relied on only faced added pressure to be on when you're realistically got a 3rd of your order doing next to squat.

I'm not predicting an offensive explosion, but I do think that the guys they've brought in will provide a more stable order and we'll see a lineup able to string together production to at least be consistent in giving our rotation run support with the hopes of turning it a over to a lights out bullpen and our nasty closer.

I will be surprised and disappointed if we're looking at a lineup coming up dry like we watched back in the day when we'd start Greinke, who'd dominate at easily a Cy Young level performance in about 90% of his starts, and yet the lineup would hang him out to dry barely scratching together 2+ runs- many times leaving what should be a winning performance at a no decision late into the game with them going to the bullpen.

(In the year Zach was lights out for us and featured all over in the media, and the 20+ win talk, the Royals had a historically low run support #s for him, even though they on average provided much better run support for other guys in our rotation- it was maddening to see it inexplicably happen time and again what seemed like every time he came up with the start.)

It was probably the Orioles GM that said this.
