The Grittiest Prospect in All of Baseball

3

This may already be common knowledge around here, but I just discovered that pitching prospect Jason Adam's full name is "Jason Kendall Adam". There can now be no doubt that this season is not "Our Time" because it will never be "Our Time" until a Jason Kendall leads us back to glory. Despite our best efforts to use "mistake-free" players, we will never have enough grit to bring about "Our Time" without a bona fide Jason Kendall.

Rany goes into fan coma, leaves DNR note

In tragic news, Rany Jazayerli became the second victim of the Royals awful season (the first of course Johnny Giavotella). He had been suffering from a severe combination of anger, depression, head banging, face palming, and outright despair for the past few days. We can only pray for a swift recovery.

Game XVI - Overflow Thread I - Score: Irrelevant Every day the futility of our collective existence becomes more and more apparent. The games go on, but the results matter little. All is subtarded.

Jurickson Profar-Future Second Baseman for the Kansas City Royals

13

I'm determined this is the guy the royals need for their long term second baseman. I'm not sure how much butler would go for but I would be quick to move him for profar. From a quick glance, it looks like the rangers don't really have a guy to fill their DH role regularly except for the guys getting half a day off. A-What do you think B-Is it possible/probably if the royals come to realize they don't have a second baseman of the future

BTBS article on April W/L records: A recent study conducted of Phillies' monthly winning percentages (dating from 2000 to 2011) indicates a minor correlation between April success (or lack thereof) and end-of-season winning percentage. Instead, the study indicates performances in the months May and June are more telling than April. To begin the study, I found Phillies' month-by-month records from 2000 to present on Baseball Reference and placed them in Excel. I then ran a multiple regression analysis with the Y variable equaling season winning percentage and the X variables equaling the various monthly winning percentages. I did not include the instances where games were played in March or October: * April: .127 * May: .244 * June: .219 * July: .143 * August: .175 * September: .178 The higher the number, the more closely that month is linked to the end-of-season winning percentage. (Not exactly peer-reviewed, but interesting nonetheless, considering the current Royals April Disaster.)
