Kevin Goldstein on Giavotella, Moustakas and Kaaihue

40
BL (Bozeman, MT): You've seen Johnny Giovatella (Burlington) play, I think characterized him as having a low ceiling but a great approach. Can he move quickly, and can he be a second base solution for KC? Kevin Goldstein: Yes and yes. Not a star, but solid. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Base (Burque): Is this the type of season Royals' fans should expect from Moustakas? Medium-well avg w/ well-done power numbers? ( why don't scouts use steak temperatures as adjectives? Seems natural) Kevin Goldstein: No. He's better than the whole of his season. He really took a while to get going, and that's totally understandable. I think he's a monster and that the .321/.392/.557 line he put up after the all-star break is more indicative of his true talent. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Trey Hillman (KC): Should I say "screw Shealy and Gload" and just play Kila full time here on out? Kevin Goldstein: I think you should. He's the guy with a chance at filling that spot next year, so let's see what you got.
