Shealy was dealing with some injury issues last year – this is the same guy who hit .283/.376/.503 in Omaha this year, and those numbers don’t translate to much more than a .250 hitter with some walks and 15-20 homer power. There is at least some reason to hope that a healthy Shealy is capable of better than that The Royals know what they have in Gload I have previously argued strenuously that the Royals should be giving Kila Ka’aihue more playing time, and I stand by that argument. But the crux of that argument was that playing Gload over Ka’aihue (or Shealy) was a case of criminal negligence. NY Royal took the stance that Shealy and Gload were of the same quality and scoffed at Babyblues analysis of Shealy being around Gloads OBP and hitting about 18 home runs, and that Shealy was better then Gload. Babyblues also mentioned that Shealy looked like he could beat that average, where as Gload didn't look very likely to even have his ML average. The great Ranny hath spoken and Babyblues get the victory!
