Honesty I’m just assuming it’s the 4 lowest numbers available.
Check out Diamond Denny. That man has caused a fair share of panties to soak in his time.
Good God Denny save some for the rest of us.
Between that and Brett it's a miracle any other man in KC got laid in the 70s and 80s.
Lopez coming up!!!!!
Please take Owings out back and shoot him. I hate him more than any Royal in recent history
He has officially taken the spot of Getz as my most hated recent Royal
Jason LaRue is my least favorite of all time. Owings is getting close. Half of my hatred of him is due to Ned and Dayton playing him every goddamn day
This line up with Salvy at 8 and a decent CF at 9 wouldn’t be the worst in the world.
Nice 3 spot early
Put Whit in CF and make Hamilton the 4th OF, send Gore to the KU track team
Gutierrez at third, Dozier first, O’Hearn DH?
Yes. I'd actually platoon O'Hearn at DH and probably try Soler at DH 3x a week and rotate Hamilton in and out.
Then when someone gets hurt I'd call Bubba up but we can't be too crazy now.
Unrelated note, I read "the Only Rule is it Has to Work" this week, about sabermetricians who take over an independent league team. The takeaway from that is that chemistry matters and i think DM places a premium on that.
Looking through that lens, some of his nonsensical moves look better. Still doesnt excuse his shitty performance and makes acquisitions of Kotteras, et. Al. look worse.
Guys. I’m kind of starting to have real feels for Scott Barlow.
Liking this Lopez kid. Great discipline. Gets on base. Top not D. Good speed. That’s a solid 2nd.
He's not gritty enough. Need moar getz and Owings
If I ever run the Royals I'm only signing/drafting guys who aren't white and watch tons of porn
Soler should DH the majority of the time. If you want to keep O'Hearn around, let him DH against a RHP every once in awhile...but he's not the .950 OPS guy we all dreamed he would continue to be. More like .750ish at best probably.
Duffy, Dwyer, Lamb, Montgomery. I’ll probably be 90 on my death bed, couldn’t name any of my grandkids, but remember those 4. And then we added Odorizzi as the 5th. Crazy how we got 2 World Series with all of that falling apart.
Louder for those in the back:
To be honest I blame over half of it to the Royals antiquated pitching development theories and long held hatred of long toss. But the idea of building your system on pitching is fucking stupid.
DM holds on to the ideal of Maddux, Glavine and Smoltz and that is legitimately impossible to replicate.
Wow. Look at this loser. Pitching is he currency of baseball. Prove gmdm wrong
I know you are joking but fuck it makes me mad. I want Allaird Baird back. He drafted one player worth 2x WAR of every player DM has
(Spitballing but Greinke was awesome, plus he didn't have ownership support DM does)
Royals killed the draft last year.
I'll believe it when I see it
The good thing about us taking college pitchers is that we've allowed someone else to develop them for 3-4 years, so there's that. The track record on 1st round HS pitchers is quite awful and hopefully we learned our lesson after we went HS pitcher-heavy recently. If we can get 2 of those college guys from last year to pan out and be in the rotation then I'd consider it a win. The early returns are quite good and we should probably see Singer and Kowar end the year in AA. Bubic is clearly ready for High-A with 66 K in 40 IP. Bowlan is ready for High-A as well. Numbers-wise, Lynch has been the least impressive but it's nothing too terrible. Even 5th rounder Austin Cox is having an impressive start in A ball.
Holy hell Jorge
Good stuff Ian!!! Was scared we might win this one.
Stopped watching after he got Morales out
The we load the bases and come up empty. These guys are pros at tanking.
Omg, I’ve never heard Hamilton speak before. Definitely need him and Mahomes to interview each other.
He reminds me of
Well shit, 2 outs from getting a W
Joel, Monty and Hud are doing a twitter broadcast. Tarp is off and they’re going to try and squeeze that inning in at 5:30 then probably shut it down. Bring in Barlow for 2 quick Ks.
Or put in Flynn so we can get the L after 2 outs.
What a disaster by that crew. I guarantee Turfman Trevor would of got that game in.
lol what a fucking joke
Ha, Ryan is so pissed.
Daniel Lynch has been lights out lately to .
Too bad all of our hitting prospects are doing terribly
Looks like we lost 2 games by a total of 2 runs in about a 5 hour span. That’s some high quality tanking.
Keeping it going with another Ian Kennedy masterpiece
Owings got the start tonight. He went 0-4. BUT he only had 4 strike outs.
Hey, at least he didn't hit into any double plays.
