Duffy walks Dee Gordon to lead off he inning, Gordon steals 2nd before Duffys' 1st pitch as time out was never called. Geez, I guess that what speed do...
Now Hairston singles, 1st & 3rd.
Uh Oh, Kemp coming up...
Royals win 8-5 putting a nice '4' spot in the 7th. Hoz knocks in 4 RBIs the day I take him in the 2nd round of my Fantasy League.
And I know Yost isn't worried about Soria, but dang...I sure am. 2 innings, 5 hits and 3 ERs. His spring ERA is at 12.00. Who knows, maybe he becomes typical Joakim Soria once the season begins and I worried for nothing, but after the rough year last year, I don't think it's unreasonable to get a little concerned with #48.
"the Royals don't need to immediately use him as the closer"
I agree and if there is an issue with Soria I hope the feel the same way.
Young team that is getting some attention and have a little higher expectation the last thing they need is early crushing losses.
theprocess is right on the money with this one. I've said for the past two years that Soria hasn't been the same since his injury. He has become our very own roller coaster since then.
Not to say I wouldn't have grumbled were he traded, but...
It seems late in the spring to still have split squads.
I guess the 4th and or 5th outfielder and who and how many infielders to keep is in doubt yet along with the rotation.
Boy I hope the catchers they come north with are not already with them.
