but that was a ass kicking ugly game today. The Royals looked like they would have had a hard time beating the 2005 version of this franchise. Why not dump the marginal players and bring up the rookies. Why not?????
The Orioles have overhauled the starting rotation and their bullpen with rookies. The brought up a rookie outfielder who is now in the running for ALROY. In fact they have used 16 different minor leaguers this season thus far. Oh, did I mention that they have a better record than we do. Our hated rivals, the Cards, have use 17 different players from the minors and they are battling for the division title even with Wellmeyer in the rotation. I just watched the Cubs vs Reds game and the one thing that Lou does that I really like is to use his AAA team like a taxi squad. The ICub players seemed to be on free bus passes to Wrigley field. Did I mention that the Cubs are in the race for central division crown and that the ICubs have a better record than Omaha. Why not the Royals????
We are never going to know if Rosa can be in a major league bullpen until he pitches here for more than a week. He has to be better than Tejada. Put Logue in leftfield and Maier in centerfield and let them start the rest of the season. Can it be worse than what we saw today and the past month. Why is Bruce Chen up here while Lenny DiNardo is 7-4 and still in AAA???? Use the minor leagues before we go out and sign more players off the slag heaps of other teams cast offs. Kia, Holland, Mertins, Lubanski.... they all deserve a shot and this season is going nowhere fast so why not bring them up. Dump or trade some of these guys and bring up the rookies. Watching young gritty scrappers would be a hell of a lot better than what we saw today.
Hillfire and Dancing in the Dark Dayton, you are starting to remind me of the Royals bosses of old. I am starting to have visions of Fuddo the Clown's ghost returning to the dugout. Get the sunflower seeds ready. Do something and do it quickly the off season is rapidly approaching and so is another 100+ game losing season. It is great to look down the road and develop talent slowly but at least put a team on the field that is fun to watch and has a chance of winning. That is not what we saw today. Today was just SAD!!!!
