Royals released Esteban German today after he cleared waivers I would have thought he could have at least garnered a PTBNL.
German in his Royal career played in 316 games, 843 AB, 236 Hits, 47 2Bs, 14 3Bs, 7 HRs, 93 RBI, 25 SB's, held a .279 AVG and walked an amazing 101 times !!!
He truly was a Royal legend
What are the odds on J.R. House ?
Not that he'll make the team but that he'll get a hit this spring before being shipped to minor league camp ? Or even if he'll make the team without a springtime hit. As we all know ST stats are meaningless.....
LaRue anyone ???
Bannister was roughed up by the Cubs today so that bods well for Hochevar.
But why ?
Bannister should have a rebound year and Hoch the 1st OVERALL pick a few years ago has impressed me (except for a homerun surrendered to Chicken Little)and should be given a spot in the rotation. Yet the man crush on Horacio continues. Sure Horacio had bad fielding but bad fielding doesn't account for 15 Hits against Bannister's 8 and Hochevar's 6/
Will we ?
Will we see Oscar Villarreal or Victor Marte pitch this Spring ?
