Mondi, you may want to sit the next couple out my man.
He's a train wreck.
The hype has always outpaced his production. At what point do we admit this is who he is?
That made me chuckle
Through 254 career games he has a .246/.277/.408 slash line. Woof. These are the type of hitters you put in the bottom of the lineup but his hype/speed/potential keeps him at the top. He is a good player but for those of us holding out hope that he would turn into Lindor, I think we can move on. He's going to be a 3.0-5.0 WAR player who plays very good defense and swings and misses a shit ton.
Through his first 374 games, Moose had a .244/.296/.385 slash line.
whoa Kris Bubic is starting tomorrow
I think yesterday was the service day? So now if we bring up anyone we still get the extra year?
I think today is the last day, so calling up tomorrow is saving the year of service time.
I sure hope these guys are ready...
it's weird they're going with him over kowar or lynch
Well, it's Keuchel vs Bubic for the Royals home opener on July 31, 2020. Just like we all knew it would be back in spring training.
Bubic not as impressive as Singer but that’s to be expected. Was obviously nervous to start but settled in nice and made some good pitches. Kid is thicc. Hung that ball to Engle but he’s got a future.
Really curious to see what we do with Lynch and Kowar now.
And what’s the deal with Singer? They’ll “send him down” for the last 4 Games of the year to buy an extra year?
Lol. Twice this year our OFers have knocked a ball over for a HR. Incredible.
For the first time this year (10 games) we had a pitcher pitch 6 innings. 95 was the last time it took a staff that long (post strike stretching pitchers back out)
Jesus Staumont is so Fucking filthy.
My man. 101 on the outside corner than an 82 mph breaker in the middle:
It's nice to see our bullpen not be a complete firework factory / grain elevator combination though...
A 3.53 ERA in almost 54 innings is a nice improvement, so far.
It still feels so bad for some reason.
But it has this
That 4 seamer-slider combo from Singer is just the tits.
Kid is filthy.
This pitching staff will be great in 2ish years. Hopefully the new ownership group buys a few bats because we don’t have any coming up.
nicky “contact” lopez will be here forever
The only (maybe, I can’t remember) MLB player to hit a HR in Omaha during an actual MLB game.
his last AB there at creighton was also a HR so maybe he should hang around in omaha for a while during 2021
Lol. Kimbrel. ROOins.
Every fucking liner we hit
Is there a college bat that’s a guaranteed #1 pick next year?
There's only a couple of "elite" college bats who would be worth the pick around where the Royals are likely picking.
J.Fabian (OF) Florida
M. McLain (SS) UCLA
A. Del Castillo (C) Miami
A. Binelas (3rd) Louisville
C. Cowser (OF) S.H St
There are a lot of talented HS kids & college arms mocked in the first round like usual.
I’m at the point, Whit and Soler. I love ya. But we need bats...
DM would just trade for more light hitting middle of diamond fast guys. We need to get lucky with guys developing
I think Witt will be very good. Then maybe at least one of Lee, Isbel, Pratto, Matias, Melendez pans out.
yeah that leaves 7 holes in the lineup, but hey..
Don't want any desperation trades.
They're a bad team. Its a short season so who cares.Just keeping adding pieces. Top two picks better be college guys who can rake.
I actually have some faith that in a few years if all the arms pan out and we need 2 or 3 or 7 bats that Sherman and crew would be ok going out and getting them. No faith that DM would ID the right ones to get though.
I think we could take a look at some batters who had mild success in 2016 and a catastrophic injury in 2017 and guess who DM ends up targeting
I keep hoping they hit the lottery in the draft bc zero confidence they can/will trade for the bats they need.
I've got greater than zero confidence. A few years ago they did go out and trade an aging cyborg arm for their current 2nd best hitter.
