Is Alex Gordon the next Clint Hurdle in KC?


I'm not judging, I'm just asking. They both came up to unbelievable hype and never turned into the players that management envisioned when they were called up.

To be fair, I don't know if the expectations were reasonable for either man. Actually, in fact, they definitely weren't. At least when Hurdle came up, he wasn't anointed the franchise's savior like Alex was.

Clearly, neither guy was the 'answer' to the Royals prayers. In Hurdle's time, that wasn't a major issue as the team had Brett, McRae, etal already there. In Alex's case, there have been no consistently outstanding offensive performers on this team. Perhaps Billy Butler will become one (geez I hope so), but will Gordon become McRae to Butler's Brett? Or will he merely continue drifting down the path of mediocrity and injury that has so far constituted his career in KC?
