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.

Alice has been pretty good for about a week. Let's see:
a) What happens when pitchers adjust to him;
b) If he can stay healthy;
c) What he does in pressure situations where production is needed. Alice will hit a homer when you're down 7-1, but runner on second in a tie game in late innings? He never hits, ever ever ever. He's Hal Morris all over again. Who's Hal Morris? The greatest non-productive Royals .300 hitter evah!

Check out Morris' 1998 KC Royals stats:
http://www.baseball-reference.com/pl...orriha02.shtml

472 ABs, 1 HR, 40 RBI, but hit .309.

It's hard to be that shitty and still hit .300.
That's Alice Gordon, if he's lucky.

It's never too early. Only too late. If there's fun and excitement, enjoy it while it lasts. Wouldn't it be something if Alex Gordon pulled a Grienke and actually realized his potential all of the sudden?

Only to be traded before his next contract ? Seems to be the norm.

whenever a baseball player comes out and says they are going to dominate, take that seriously. In the business, that means he's finally on steroids.

Actually, he looks like the fittest player on the team. He's not too skinny, he has a good frame. Strong arm for sure. Yeah steroids it is. Oh well. I don't care.
