    Royals just traded for Jamey Carroll of the Twins to fill in at 2nd base...for future considerations or cash

    That is good. Was worried that Getz was going to be back out there tomorrow night. (And he can even pitch if needed. )

    Not sure, but guessing just until the end of this season...Tejada's injury must be worse than 15-day DL. Elliott Johnson is a good defender, but what an offensive liability. He might get cut?

    Re: Royals

    Carroll .690 career OPS vs. Getz .622 career OPS. Not huge difference but better.

    However, Carroll has .747 OPS vs. lefties, so he does provide a good bat against lefties.

    Re: Royals

    One of GMDM's top priorities this off-season should be acquiring a major league second baseman. Chris Getz, Elliot Johnson and Jamey Carroll don't qualify.

    So frickin jealous of what they have in Ames. It's truly amazing what Fred has done coming in with 0 coaching experience.

    Re: Royals

    I ran a correlation analysis between opening day payrolls and current win percentage (as of last night) and the correlation is .29. That means there is a very weak positive correlation between payroll and winning in baseball this year. Last year's was .18: 2012 Payrolls and Wins | FanGraphs Baseball.

    Payroll cannot be used as an excuse for losing in baseball anymore.

    Re: Royals

    Figured this thread deserves a bump what with how the last couple weeks of the season are shaping up. Another win today for KC...

    We're still in the race! Every time I think we are out, they pull me back in...

    Time for a Tampa Bay loss tonight!

    Re: Royals

    Pitching still cruising along, if there score 4 or more they are in pretty good shape for most games.

    Re: Royals

    Need to take the series vs. Detroit if they want to make the playoffs. In control of their own destiny though, with series vs. Detroit and another Vs. CLE

    Re: Royals

    Every game from here on out is important. The next two series against DET and CLE will seal our fate if they are to play in the postseason. At the very least, they will be contenders next year.....unless GMDM decides to trade away Hosmer and Moose for a bag of peanuts and pre-chewed gum.

    No, the next THREE series will determine our fate. @DET, VS CLE, VS TEX.
