    RoyalRich replied to the topic Thought on the “Opener” strategy in the forum Baseball 20 hours, 13 minutes ago

    It makes little difference to me. I don’t much like roles anyway, which I’ve said before. I’ve never believed the baseball line that the final 3 outs are the hardest to get. Nope, put my best reliever in during the 7th inning with the bases loaded and 1 out and I pretty much guarantee that’s more stressful than putting him in for a clean 9th…[Read more]

    I wonder how low this has to go before Dayton is replaced.

    He won’t be. Because to many “fans” in this town and more importantly to ownership, he’s the “genius” that orchestrated putting the Royals back in – and winning – the World Series after 30 years.

    As I’ve said for about as long as most of you have known me I’m more a baseball fan than I am a Royals fan. Although the Royals are my team (will be more when Dayton is gone) I love baseball for baseball so I watch all the time. I catch probably 3 or 4 games a week if not more at times and I watch MLB network pretty much exclusively when I’m not…[Read more]

    RoyalRich replied to the topic Herrera to Nats for 3 Who the Hell are these guys? in the forum Baseball 3 days, 16 hours ago

    Yeah I heard the same thing said by Dayton this morning… and I’d also like to say I’m surprised. I’d also like to say it’s lip service and what you expect a general manager to say. Unfortunately that doesn’t hold true with Dayton. He actually means it when he says it, which is nice and all… but it’s not a way to run a team. It just begs…[Read more]

    RoyalRich replied to the topic My All Star Ballot in the forum Baseball 4 days, 14 hours ago

    Yup, absolutely, I’ve said the same thing. He is one of the better catchers, not necessarily the best. But like I said I temper that by the fact that even if he was the best catcher – which he’s not – 2/3rds of the catchers in this league are worse than probably half the middle infielders are right now. So when people talk up Perez and act as…[Read more]

    You know it’s bad when the MLB network discusses your trade 3 times tonight… and not one time do they mention who the Royals got in return. Not one time in the 3 times I saw it talked about. They just talked about Herrera and said we got 3 prospects in return. I mean typically they say who you got. These guys are so unknown that they didn’t…[Read more]

    Yeah this is just… not a good deal. Just a couple of days ago when asked about trading Moose Dayton said that he would never make a deal just to make a deal. This reeks of just making a deal and I don’t get it. You can’t tell me there weren’t other teams that might have inquired about Herrera. You can’t tell me that there wasn’t another team…[Read more]

    Ouch.. how did I forget Trout. I’m pretty sure I actually voted for him, over Brantley I believe.

    Yes, Ramos and Perez are “similar” but Ramos has a better OPS+ and doesn’t have a sub .300 OBP which just irks me about Perez. Sure, Perez has more power but his average is crap and his OBP is a joke. I would never vote to put that in the All Star…[Read more]

    This is my ballot as of right now:

    American League

    CA: Ramos — I can see the argument for Perez, and I probably wouldn’t argue much
    1B: Abreu
    2B: Altuve — I’d almost go Torres here but Altuve just because
    SS: Machado
    3B: Ramirez — I can see the argument for Moose but I don’t agree

    Oh I get it. I know Singer’s been “good” but there are a lot of guys in college that are good and a whole bunch of them will never see the majors. I’m not telling you anything you don’t know.

    I’m just saying from my point of view and watching the kid pitch, I don’t see what the overall hype is. Yeah his numbers are okay and sometimes even…[Read more]

    I don’t buy the hype on Singer. He looks more like a reliever than a starter. Yeah he’s got a good, lively fastball and at times throws a good slider but it’s inconsistent. And he has absolutely no changeup worth talking about at all. He’s a guy that has a good ceiling but to me other than winning some big games in college his numbers aren’t…[Read more]

    Well that’s a given.

    Honestly this looks all between the ears to me. I’ve watched him pitch and don’t see anything mechanical that seems to be any different than what he was doing last year.

    The only difference is he’s “the guy” now and just signed a new contract and was the subject of all kinds of trade rumors during the off-season. We all…[Read more]

    Oh no, mostly just random fans. Of course they’re fueled by 610 sports who are so far up the Royals ass that it’s hard to tell where the Royals end and 610 begins. They go on all day long about how the Royals are competitive and Dayton is the genius to end all genius general managers. The writers in town have been up and down. I won’t say…[Read more]

    No, you’re right and I obviously wasn’t suggesting you trade Moose by tomorrow. However, if the trade deadline comes and goes and you haven’t traded Moose then you’re an idiot. The only reason he was brought back should have been to trade him and fix Dayton’s mistakes from last year. I don’t care if you only get a couple of “B” prospects for…[Read more]

    There are 7 teams… SEVEN… that have a better record than any team in the American League Central.

    And we’re one of the worst teams in the worst division in the league.
