    Re: Royals

    Yost cannot manage a bullpen to save his life! I don't know how many times I have seen him bring in a pitcher with the bases loaded and he pulls him when he lets up a single to the outfield scoring two runs but he will leave a pitcher in when he gives up 10 runs in 2 innings.

    You might want to check the numbers there skippy. The Pirates, Rays, Indians, A's, and Rockies all have payrolls lower than KCs and they all have records over .500 right now. The Royals aren't bad because their budget is low; they are bad because the organization is run by a bunch of poo flinging monkeys. Royals fans are fed up with the poo flinging and are ready to see somebody who has a freakin' clue call the shots.

    Last night was just awful. The classic snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in the bottom of the 8th inning. Painful.

    Re: Royals

    I love interleague play but probably not near as much as Cardinals fans. They've got to love having the Royals on their schedule every year.

    1. You could substitute Iowa State and make the same argument. Does that stop you from being a passionate fan? 2. That was an excuse 5 years ago. But they've developed young talent and were a very popular pick to win the division/get a wildcard spot this year. This is supposed to be the year where all of that waiting was going to pay off.

    I don't blame Royals fans for being upset, this is their window. And for the past 3 weeks, they've completely **** the bed.

    Because we actually know what we are talking about....

    There are several teams with lower budgets who are winning.

    If they fire Ned Yost, I heard that Bobby Valentine is available.

    It's his last year of arbitration, and I think he got $4.7 million, which isn't unreasonable for a ******, but relatively high-innings starting pitcher in their last year of arbitration. Rather than non-tender one of GMDM's 1st draft picks, they decided to pay him a starter's price in arbitration, and then make him a reliever (which is amazingly stupid for a low-budget team with a decent bullpen). If he was starting and could give them 150+ innings as a 4th-5th starter, I'd be okay with the $5 million, but to tender him when he was pretty clearly headed to the bullpen is pretty ridiculous. The money could've been better spent elsewhere.

    Chen is also making $5+ million this year, in the 2nd year of a 2-year deal. The Royals have a penchant for pulling guys off the scrap heap, and then giving them 2 year deals after they give the Royals one good year (when there is very minimal demand for their services otherwise). There was NO reason to expect that Chen or Francouer would continue to perform at that level for 2 years considering they had yet to perform well for over one year at a time since they made it to majors.

    They've been running the team on sentiment and Jesus-riding dinosaur logic for years and have to go.

    Hochevar, Chen, Francouer, and Santana are making $30 million between them this year. Enough to make a grown man cry. Santana is pitching well, and they didn't give up much, but they could've had him for free! Plus, his velocity drop last year and increase this year is scary because a drop followed by a sudden increase is sign of an injury.

    How could the Royals have gotten Santana for free? He was in the last season of his contract with the Angels.

    Maybe even an old pic of Dan McCartney might raise the morale of Royal fans. Right now, KC is stuck in mud when hittters who are not hitting.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Re: Royals

    Maybe we need Luis Mendoza to DH for Francoeur? He seemed better with the bat than our hitters last night. Plus, his hair is awesome.

    Dozer has the same amount of RBIs as Francoeur since May 1st...
