I feel that its time to discuss the arguments(no less than a week ago) about Wilie Bloomquist. Look, I realize he has been on fire lately and you naysayers are probably saying to yourself, "well he ll cool off cause there is no way to sustain it". Well for those of you that think that you might be right. However, as of now I would say he was the catalyst that a hungry royals team needed this weekend against a twins team that really needed to take at least two of three. He hit for average, he hit for power, he didnt make stupid baserunning mistakes, he stole some bases, and maybe most importantly he can play wherever you need him outside of pitcher and catcher(for now hahaha). But seriously, I dont think he should start everyday. I dont think he is wonderful at any position. What is he? SOLID anywhere and everywhere Trey needs him. We all know he loves versatility and that is Wille Bloomquist right now. Hillman expects his players to make the plays they re supposed to and everything else is a bonus. The majority of you fine gentlemen were begging and pleading to play Mitch Maier instead of Bloomy because "Maier plays better defense and neither one of them can hit". Really? Im a human being by somewhat living in the moment but anyone who said Maier should play before Bloomquist should feel pretty ignorant right now. I would say that Bloomquist's D has been well above average recently and we all know what he has done at the plate. For now I say you leave the hot hand in the lineup right now and find some way to have Maier swat flies in the dugout(or in Omaha) instead of at the plate. If Maier draws a walk, to me its like a ground ruled double whereas Bloomquist actually has quality at bats. Something this team needs when the likes of Olivo, Maier, and so on are in the lineup. Your thoughts and opinions guys! By the way, how does first place sound?!?
