    Pitching hasn't been a problem, scoring has. Is the manager supposed to hit for these guys?

Really need a 2nd baseman and an outfielder that can get on base, especially with some extra base hits.
    Their hitters hit homeruns better in warmer and drier air. They are warning track hitters and need 80 degree weather to hit them out.

    In fact, opponents have hit nearly three times as many home runs (32-11) this season at Kauffman Stadium as the Royals.

    Re: Royals

    These past 3 weeks have been just plain painful to watch. Wow is our lineup bad. Gordon, Butler, Cain, Perez, and Escy are the only big league level hitters (and Butler and Escobar are having down years and Cain and Perez are down power-wise).

    Hosmer is a 6-4 230 lbers who slaps singles at this point. Moustakas can't even hit .200. And Francoeur is just plain the worst position player in baseball. Getz is absolutely worthless at 2B as well, he is a defensive specialist who is below average defensively. Oh, and nobody walks.

    Do you guys know that the Cubs pitchers have hit more HRs in the last 3 weeks than the Royals entire team? Just awful to watch at this point. Boy, firing Kevin Seitzer sure worked out, didn't it?

    Yost has made some bad moves at times with the pitching staff and the lineup. But really, when you score 0-2 runs each game, there isn't much a manager can do.

    We just spent a week in Oakland and LA... I think the only guy who hit one out is the ancient Miguel Tejada.

    According to that article, he's the only Royal to hit one out in the past two weeks.

    I agree...It's mostly the players, and it almost always is in these cases. Most of my problems with Yost have been moves he's made in previous years, and his continual decisions to play 1-2 year contract vets over young guys who could have a future (when the team clearly isn't ready to compete).

    He also lacks critical thinking skills. He makes decisions for crazy reasons. I avoid reading his comments to the media so the analytical engineer in me isn't infuriated.

    So...in short...I've wanted him gone for awhile and now smell blood in the water. I've wanted GMDM gone longer, and hope he doesn't get to make his 3rd manager hire.

    Might as well keep working up the chain and get rid of David Glass, too.

    I think Glass has been improving. Dayton Moore finally convinced Glass the Royals had a chance to win this year, and Glass allowed him to bump the payroll up to $80 million, which isn't anything special, but around #20 in MLB.

    The problem is they have Francouer making $7 million, and Hochevar and Chen making $5 million. Santana making $13 million probably won't be worth it, and these were all deals the Royals made early in the offseason before they could realize the market just wasn't there. Just bad moves with the extra payroll they were allowed.

    What's Hochevar's situation? Hard to believe he got $5m through arbitration when he's pitched as terribly as he has...but it's even harder to believe that the club would lock him up for that amount for the very same reasons. Or are you lumping Chen and him together in that $5m figure?

    Re: Royals

    After Yost stuck with Crow tonight for WAY too long, he should be gone NOW. I was freaking out when he stuck with him with 1 run in, 2 on and only one out (and the Royals still up by 1). But then he continued to stick with him after the Cards tied it. Unbelievable! But Yost has done this repeatedly over the last few years, giving up games that they should have won. I want him GONE!
