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.

Gordon is having arguably the best or second-best season by a Royals position players over the last 20 years. Here are the top three:

WAR
Carlos Beltran, 2003, 6.7 WAR,
Alex Gordon 2011, 6.4 WAR
Jay Bell, 1997, 5.6 WAR

Dayton needs to lock him up ASAP.

Alex has had a good year. It's been his only good year. He's giving what should be expected for his high draft position. Dominating? He's definitely been better, but I wouldn't call him George Brett just yet. This is a team sport. His team has only won 70 games this year, and is in next to last in the division. He leads the team in OBP, homers with 23 -that wouldn't lead most major league teams, thats for sure-, and he's tied for runs scored with Melky. One troubling stat is he hits about 70 points higher at home than on the road. And he strikes out twice as much as he walks. His defense has been very good. So I'd be for re-signing him, and if it looks like we can't re-sign him, trade him now for starting pitching while we can get a true impact player for him.

Actually, the last time he was healthy an entire season, he posted an OPS+ of 117 (or thereabouts - forget the exact number). Which is a plus player.

He's been the best left fielder in the AL, by the numbers, and has one of the highest WAR numbers of any AL OF.

Pretty dominant.

Okay, if he'll sign, re-sign him. If he won't re-sign, deal him for pitching while we still control him.

Cause he'll never hit over .275 for a season.

I like my odds.

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.

Would be happy to be wrong, though.

But I'm sure the Royals will start sucking and back to the bottom in a month.

I definitely think we need to see more of Dyson so we confirm if he is indeed worse than Joey Gathright.
