    The Royals second best non pitching prospect is only 17 years old so he should maybe be ready by 2024 or 2025 lol

    I see a lot of talk about bats. Well guess what. What we need is more pitchers. If your entire team is pitchers, you can never lose. Shortstop? Pitcher. Center? Pitcher. Pitcher? Pitcher. The key to baseball is to draft only pitchers and then trade them for other pitchers

    it would’ve been funny if he got it on a challenge, but pretty cool for a former junction city blue jay

    lot of guys from the region on this team

    Buxton batting 9th and sub 200. How many years in a row was he the greatest prospect in history?

    Damnit. Probably tweaked a hip/back when he slipped. Was still hitting 100+ so I don’t think it’s serious but he was missing his spots pretty bad. But my lord that tailing 101 then the yellow hammer. It’s like Soria on steroids.

    In his defense Maverick knocked a base hit. One more and he’s over 300 on the season.

    My issue is he eggs on the cookieness of Hud. Ryno calls him out for being a meatheaded dummy which is a good dynamic. Phys encourages it.

    And I can’t fault LeFevre. He 100% admits he wants to take advantage of any chance he has to call games with Denny. I’m just worried about when Denny retires and Ryan takes over the radio side and we’re left with Hud and Phys for a decade.

    Bullpen is a nice surprise. Now for assembling a major league hitting lineup

    Decide your Dozier/Fraco/McBroom 1/3rd dilemma. Figure out if you want Dozier/Solar in RF. Decide if Whit is better replacing Lopez at 2nd or the Merry Go Round in CF. It’s not a good lineup but at least seems like a low level ML lineup instead of the AAA wannabes weve been running out.

    Staumont looks like Aroldis Chapman 2.0. hopefully minus the domestic violence and guns.

    So we’ve got a relatively good bullpen. Crazy how that can happen in one offseason

    Obviously we all drop our pants (rightfully so) when we see Staumont take the mound but shout out to the kid grinding for 3 innings after taking a ball 101 off his pitching hand. Deserved the W.
