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.

I have to admit... I didn't think this would happen. I expected the same old, same old from Gordon this year.

But he really has changed his approach and his swing. His defense has looked great. Really enjoying watching him play. Just hope he keeps this up over the whole season. I can see .290/.375/22/100/15 as a final slash line. Would likely put him in the .850-.950 SLG range, depending on how many doubles he hits.

Combine that with .320/.400/20/100 with Butler, and the Royals have a legitimate 3-4 combo for the first time since I can remember...

I only saw Gordon rarely in the past, when the Royals played the Angels, and the rare ESPN games, but his swing right now is as smooth and level as one could hope.

He seemed to have a natural uppercut in his swing in year's past.

He's much closer to the plate (I think someone mentioned that already) and he's swinging much easier. He's not trying to hit 475 shots to right center with every swing. Also, his hand position is better, which keeps him from his tendency to roll over on pitches.

And he's got enough natural power that even with this swing, he's good for 20-25 home runs, even playing 81 games in cavernous Kauffman Stadium.
