Alex Gordon says: Im going to dominate next year,





http://www.kansascity.com/2010/09/21...-dominate.html


Alex Gordon is already putting down a marker for next year as this season a transition season that saw him switch from third base to left field winds through the final two weeks.

Im going to dominate next year, he vowed, I can tell you that. Not that this year is over, but Im going to dominate next year.

The words, as always with Gordon, come quietly. And, yes, he knows his production this year, or throughout his four-year career, offers little to support what, for him, is a rare proclamation.

Gordon has six homers and just 16 RBIs in 52 games since returning from Class AAA Omaha. He also has 45 strikeouts in 203 plate appearances while batting .233 with a .325 on-base percentage.

No matter.

Ive shown flashes, he said, but something thats bothered me is I havent been consistent. I show flashes, and then I go into a little bit of a slump that kind of erases what I did.

I just need to figure out how to be consistent and put it all together throughout the year.

There seems little doubt he will get a chance to validate his words. General manager Dayton Moore said Gordon remains a key component in the Royals future as club officials shape their off-season plans.

I think Alex is going to have a great year next year, Moore said. I really do. I think Alex is going to be a solid contributor. Ill say this: You can win a championship with Alex Gordon on your club.

Were counting on him to be that type of guy when were ready to win.

That seems to spike any lingering speculation that Gordon faced a make-or-break stretch this summer after returning in mid-July from Omaha to become the clubs regular left fielder.

I think hes going to be fine, manager Ned Yost said. Do I think hes going to hit .300? Maybe not. But do I think hes got a chance to hit 20-25 homers and drive in 80-85 runs? Yeah. Hes got a chance to take some walks and be a productive hitter for us.

Gordon sees that and more.

I feel comfortable in left field, he said. I was struggling at third, and it was taking too much out of me. My numbers arent where I want them to be. Im not producing like I want to produce.

But Im feeling good out there, and I think its going to come around.

Best identify a fat lady. If Yuni's worthless ass can hit 16. ****, man...it is sad, though, that the bar is so damn low. 25? Like that is some kind of big deal for any other team other than our clowns.

I could be 30-0 and Gordan could finally lay off that slider in the dirt and we'd still be losers. /Grienke

Dude, he's got to prove:

a. He can stay healthy for an entire season

b. He can actually anchor A position on the team where he is the best option

c. That he can be mentally tough enough to get thru an entire season before he starts falling back on his Minor League swing.

I like my odds.

I like your odds, too, actually. But "B"? Come on. There's no such thing as a "best option" on this team. Not yet, anyway. Worst defensive team in MLB.

True

Crazy, I know, but I don't expect the Royals to stand pat in FA regarding corner OF's. And, Gordon ISN'T going back to 3B, imo. So, what's left? Trade Belly Butler and have Gordo and Kila trade off at 1b?

The Royals are currently 62-88. They have 12 games left. If they continue to play around .400 ball, as they have for most of the year, let's assume in the final 12 games they go 5-7. That means their record for the year will be 67-95, just five games short of another 100 loss season.

That stinks on ice, man.

At least Daddy Warbucks Glass got to see a pennant winning team in Northwest Arkansas. I wonder if he ever made it to a Royals game at Kauffman this year?

well ok, Alex. You go right ahead and try to dominate. At this point, I'll settle for "eh, he's almost pretty good, I guess"

If Gordon gets 500 at bats, I will bet someone 500,000 in casino cash that he has at least 24 HRS.
