Royals say 3-5 September callups

"I'd say three-to-five callups, at the most," general manager Dayton Moore said.
OK that is just kind of stupid if you ask me. I'd callup quite a few guys.
I mean what have you got to lose ? Nothing.
What have you got to gain ? Knowledge of whether the guys in AAA can contribute to the team next year or not. And I'd think guys like DiNardo if they are passed over for a callup are going to move on to another team during the off season. Seriously who here thinks Roman Colon should be back next year ? How about Bruce Chen ? Mike Jacobs ? John Buck ?

Yeah that's what I thought. Now what about Victor Marte ? Dusty Hughes ? Victor Marte ? Irving Falu ? To name only a few.

And I know that current group of players just isn't going to cut it but hey Thank God we've still got Greinke without him the Royals would be as boring as well I don't know.
All I could think of was how bad Mike Shannon is I can't stand, that guy he's probably help me become a Royals fan. Geez he's annoying as can be.

Zack Greinke is just amazing 15 K's followed by a CG, SHO, 1 hitter. And oh yeah 200+ strikeouts on the year.

Finally I love this quote it's just amazing:

"I would imagine we'll go day-to-day and see what our situation is here," Hillman said. "That would give us more latitude. With only three extra players, as much as it limits you late in ballgames to make moves, it's very doable. I mean, I managed five years with a 23-man roster in Double-A, Triple-A with three extra players and two of the three weren't catcher but we've still got some versatility with [Mark] Teahen, [Willie] Bloomquist and [Alberto] Callaspo moving things around on the infield."
