Anybody read the Royals mailbag today?
Hillman sorta making overtures that he is at least entertaining the idea of sitting Gordon or Teahen in favor of German.
You all know I am a big German fan, but I'm not sure how this can be a positive for the future. Bell did a good job protecting Gordon against lefties last year, and when asked to play full-time against them this year, Gordon has really had a rough time (look at his splits, but do so without a full stomach). Teahen, on the other hand, has had much more time to develop against the lefties, and while he is certainly better than Gordon against them, IMHO his platoon differential is unacceptable high for a full time player as well.
If this team was contending this season, I would have been calling for a straight platoon of somebody with Gordon from the beginning - but we are supposed to be rebuilding, right? So which is it Trey? Should we accept the growing pains of Gordon trying to hit lefties, or should we screw with him in an effort to increase our win total this year from 74 to 76?
