Oh come on. So you two don't want Moose to get off days in general......Or just because Yuni is the backup? Or you would just rather the off day be completely arbitrary instead of doing it when it makes the most sense?
For the love of.....you just agreed with:"[["Well I still would be against letting Yuni take over 3B from Moustakas on occasion when there is a Left on the mound because Moose needs to learn how to hit lefties."" I want Moose developed without any distractions, like Yuni playing over him on occasion."
No, I have no idea if the Royals ever received anyone for Bloomquist. All things considered, things are pretty quiet so far this spring. Nothing to get overly excited or upset about (well, maybe Betancourt). Getting Salvador Perez signed long-term has been the only surprise, and it was a pleasant one.
The Royals look much better so far this spring, which is what I think most of us expected. I'm still not sold on Sanchez or Broxton. Sanchez is the more important one of the two. If he's good, then the team should have a winning record this year. But if he's not, or if he develops a sore arm early in the season, then the offense will really have to score a lot of runs for the Royals to have a winning record. SF was reportedly going to let him go before the season, and before the trade. I don't know.
Yost said three to four days a week.
No, I don't want him out in the field that often. Unless he gets there as a pinch hitter in late innings when we're already up by more than two runs.
"SF was reportedly going to let him go before the season, and before the trade. I don't know."
That reminds me too much of when I heard Jacobs was going to be released before the Royals traded for him and after posting that I was nearly run off the board here and at the Star.
By the way, I still miss the old Star board and many of its members. Some made it over here but not all of them.

Such talk is blasphemous on this board and will not be tolerated by the apologist's.They will demand you give name's, phone #'s, home addresses, & those of the closest living relative's, of the source of such blasphemy.
"What would reeeeeealy bother you is if DM brings Mike Aviles back. Right? "
Absolutely. Only because that would mean you'd return to this board with your senseless drivel.

That's a bit harsh wouldn't you say? If someones going to put out a rumor like that about Sanchez and the Giants then the least they could do is provide a source for it. If you do a search on it you can't find anything saying that the Giants were going to cut Sanchez. Sure you might find a blog speculating on what they will do with their pitching but that is all speculation and not based on reports from the club itself.
I will say that the Giants have a lot of pitching and maybe they would have had to non-tender him if it came to making choices but I wouldn't have bet on that happening. Sanchez is a pitcher who just the prior year pitched in 193 innings with a 3.07 ERA and 205 K's and I doubt many teams give up on this type of pitcher due to a down year because of injuries in 2011. Last year he had an injury plagued season which brought his ERA up to a 4.26 which is his career level. He has a 9.4 K/9 over his career and is 29 years old. I think a more likely scenario would have been they would have kept him and traded him sometime around the trade deadline for prospects if he pitched well.
You are so respected for being sincere. However, taste this for senselessness -
Are you disguising your lack of baseball aptitude by portraying yourself as a writing professor?
My writings were targeted for a demographic comprised of unsophisticated, jaded KC baseball fans, so I kept it simple. Also, I targeted DM and his insiders knowing that they take an occasional peek. We were pleased with our outcome. Go RSN!!!
As you may be able to persuade yourself by managing to justify any given matter, far greater challenges await you. Simply because it will be too late when you reach the point of acknowledging your shortcomings. By this time you will reflect on many of your oversights and understand that all along I tried to show you the light.
This board exercised their right to voice opinions regarding Aviles and I read many of them. This is an issue not of hate, but of opportunity. Tony Pena was given an opportunity and so were many others. To translate opportunity for you, imagine being a dog tied to a fence and your leash is changed from a short one to longer one, but never taken off. Its called restrictions- When you are restricted, you are limited. Who needs that?
I always understood, never wanted fans to hate, did not make things up and tried to take out of your darkness. Go KC !!!
You know, since Aviles was drafted in 2003, and Tony Pena took a powder rather early in 2005, exactly when did Pena have the opportunity to see the greatness that was to be in Mike Aviles?
