Two players, playa:
Player Alpha: .220/.310/.275
Player Omega: .195/.295/.317
It's pretty likely I'm not fooling any of you...besides, none of you would admit it anyway. Player Alpha is Chris Getz, player Omega is/was Kila Ka'aihue.
What I'm not understanding is why those slashlines would mean Kila needed to go while Getz plays almost every day, especially given that they also now share the distinction of playing questionable defense. I suppose there's a difference in expectations -- we don't expect Getz to hit, and perhaps neither does Ned Yost. But the cold, hard fact is that their production both offensively and defensively are as of this point pretty similar, so continuing to treat Getz differently than Kila, to me, smacks of hypocrisy.
Now, with Mr. Eric Hosmer here, there's only so much I can complain about Kila being sent down, of course. The Royals don't have anyone named Erik Hosmir or Enrique Hosmarez down in the minors playing 2B that I'm aware of, ready to make his major league debut.
But with the Royals currently having trouble scoring and losing 4 of their last 10, failing to score more than 2 runs in each of those -- why Yost continues to play musical chairs with Mike Aviles, Wilson Betemit, and Getz when two of them are solid with the bat and all of them have had some defensive troubles this season, it seems really plain to me who should still be standing when the music stops.
Oh yeah...do you see what I did there? This writing stuf is so viry easy, anyone coold do it,
