Oh and this is a great NEW video of my favorite APFP song if you take nothing else from my post let this be it. (Let me know what you think please !)
And now on to the Royals.
The Royals suck.
Consider this a plea to purge the roster I mean take a look at the 25 man roster and it is scary man. It's almost all Hyde and no Jekyll. Look at the rotation after ZG and Banny.
- Ponson 1-7 7.36 ERA (Purge)
- Chen 0-6 5.73 ERA (Purge)
- Hochevar 6-4 5.28 ERA
- Wright 5.19 ERA
- Cruz 6.39 ERA
- Tejeda 5.93 ERA
- Colon 5.04 ERA
- Mahay 3.24 ERA
- Bale 5.84 ERA
And now even that could be pushed back. Geez Waechter hurry up and heal.
So who replaces the bullpen arms ? Well look to
- Dinardo as mentioned before
- Carlos Rosa rough start but has put the pieces back together
- Yabuta never ever thought he could be an improvement
- Victor Marte 3.15 ERA in 29 innings
- Disco 3.33 ERA in 27 innings
- Hey Ducky has always been serviceable.
Now on to the players.....
- Buck and Olivo should both be purged why weren't these guys traded ? Let B.Pena play everyday and callup House or Suomi to backup ?
- Mike Jacobs should be released so Kila can get some AB's
Well I'll answer that absolutely nothing at all except the fans might come to see some of the new guys ! I mean I'd love to see Lubanski and Marte play. No I don't feel excited watching Ponson pitch and Freel/Bloomquist/Teahen in the OF I just don't.
And here's a news flash for Dayton Moore YOU ARE NOT GOING TO CATCH THE NATIONALS ! So forget about it besides what makes you think Stephen would sign in Kc if he doesn't with the Nats. Oh and has anyone heard how the Aaron Crow negotiations are going ? Would it not perhaps be the cruelest joke of all if the Royals fail to sign him ?
And you know what Detroit is a mere 53-48 thats only FIVE games above .500 and the Royals easily could have been in the hunt.
I'd purge the roster, and I'd fire Hillman, I wouldn't have trade for Betancourt who is hitting .115 with an OBP of .113, and I would've made a trade but that's not important.
Neither is the fact that the Royals are 40-63 and are the worst Royals team I've ever seen and I swear I mean that with all my heart. Nor the fact the team has no All-Star caliber players on offense.
Here's the link to the video again it'll cheer you up. Unlike the Royals.
