I think Hosmer could revert back to last year's numbers, but I'm pretty sure Billy Butler is done as a decent DH. We'll see if I'm right. As for Escobar/Infante I think Escobar will fall off severely but I never said anything about Infante. Only that his contract will suck year 4. WTF was he even brought up?
You brought up Infante. No one else has even mentioned him.

Of the 194 qualifiers on Fangraphs WAR leaerboard, Butler ranks 192. So 3rd worst player in baseball so far this year. Moose 175, Hosmer 163. Aoki 116:
http://www.fangraphs.com/leaders.asp...=0&sort=21%2cd


It's early on Aoki, has a 0.3 WAR which projected out is 1.8 which would be what he did last year and what ZIPS & Steamer both have him at. He's striking out 14.4% of the time though vs 5.9% last year so that may improve.


However Wil Smith is off to a roaring start in Mil going 15IP with 1 ER allowed and an 8/1 K/bb ratio. Given Chen's injury it might be a trade we regret since Aoki is only in KC one year.

Good God, you make como and bambi look smart sometimes.

To update: of 27 qualifying 1B, only 3 have a lower weighted Runs Created (wRC+) figure as well as runs above replacement (RAA) than Hosmer:
http://www.fangraphs.com/leaders.asp...rs=0&sort=17,d


He is now one of only 8 players of the top 110 most plate appearances without a home run and the only 1B. The other 7 positions represented:

RF: (Aoki)
2B: (Bonifacio, Murphy, Prado)
SS: (Cabrera, Echevarria)
3B: (McGehee)


So basically it's Erica and some middle infielders who are thus vying for "biggest pussy" of MLB.

Some announcers the other day were attributing his lack of power to the width of his stance and creating little loft on hits.

He tries to kill the ball every time. Looks like he's swinging an ax.

It's amazing to me to see his swing in slow motion and wonder why there's no power behind it. It looks like the ball should be going 400' on most of his solid hits

Well, here we go again with another May meltdown.

If we have another May with less than 10 wins (which is totally possible) here's what I'd do:

1) Send Moose to AA Arkansas and leave him there all year. If you can't trade him in the off season, assign him back to AA Arkansas in 2015 and make him play his way to Omaha. Then we'll see what happens. He's had enough of a track record to show what he is: a less than .200 major league hitter who can't solve left handed pitching. For the rest of this year, just flat start Valencia at third. He's a better overall player, and won't be a black hole in the sixth spot.

2) If we're 10 games below .500 at the AS Break, trade Shields. Get the best value you can for him. He's not coming back anyway, so what's the point?

3) DFA Chen. He's done. Don't care, he's done.

4) If Cain can't stay healthy the rest of the year, trade him in the off season. He's never made it out of April healthy. Can't rely on him. He's the Brokie Croyle of the Kansas City Royals.

5) After the AS Break, consider trading Alex Gordon for prospects. He's on the downward arc of his career track. Send him to a winner so he can get to the playoffs at least once in his career. Do him a favor, get him out of this Hell.

6) Try to sign Salvie to an even longer term contract. Keep him in Hell for a long time.

7) If we're more than 10 games below .500 at the AS Break, fire Ned. Let Sveum serve out the rest of the year, then get a new skipper for 2015.

8) If Billay has less than 10 HRs by the AS Break, bench him, DH Maxwell the rest of the year.

9) Continue to start Duffy. Let him take his lumps.

10) After the AS Break, get Zimmer up here, Start him. Let him take his lumps too.

Desperate times call for desperate measures.

Currently, KC is last in MLB in team home runs, third from last in slugging pct, and fourth from last in on-base pct.

If trading Shields at the break ends up being the right move, and it might, DM won't be the one making the deal. Dude has to be fired at that point.

And I'm going to puke all the **** over myself if the above happens because the trade will have been an unbelievable catastrophe.

Why call up Zimmer if we aren't in contention? Why rush him and burn service time? And if we are out of contention in May, clean house. Get someone in here who will do right for the long-term. Maybe someone who can cobble together a staff that can actually develop a ****ing hitter. I would retain Eiland, however.

I actually tried looking at how wide Hosmer's stance actually is and tried doing a full swing as if I were pulling a pitch. I'll tell you this. It is a pain in the ass clearing the hips with that kind of stance. I think that's what Karros meant when he said that. It's a nice stance for hitting line-drives to center and opposite field, but that's about it. He needs to close it to have any sort of home run power. There's next to no leverage.

As long as the Cardinals are contending, GMDM has nothing to worry about. David and Dan Glass are Cardinal fans, and won't be distracted to tinker with the Royals if the Cards keep them entertained.
