Rany - Royals Report Card Part 2

"Brayan Pena – Expectations: Low to Moderate; Grade: B- Pena wound up with numbers awfully similar to his numbers in 2009, which hides the fact that his book was A Tale of Two Seasons. He started just 12 of the Royals’ first 125 games, and in that time was 9-for-61 with two doubles and five walks, for a line of .148/.221/.180. He would start 25 of the last 37 games, over which he hit .320/.362/.433."

Danny Gutierrez, who was 82-85 -- not a typo -- with no arm speed and a very restricted throwing motion. Gutierrez, who was suspended for unapproved use of Adderall but has a history of off-field issues dating back to his time in the Royals organization, is a non-prospect at this point unless his former low- to mid-90s velocity returns.

Farewell to Herges, Lerew and Rupe

Self-share, but only because I was afraid this little tale would get buried: "Rupe also gave me one of my moments of realization that baseball players are people with an exhausting schedule, and I should keep that in mind when I think/write/converse about them. One day, the team had just returned from a long road trip. Everyone looked awful before the game. Rupe said they had flown in from wherever at 3 that morning, and finally arrived in Omaha at around 2 in the afternoon, just in time to go straight to the ballpark. He smiled weakly at the cloudless sky and wondered if somehow, some way, someone could arrange a rainout so the guys could get some rest."

For Halladay, I looked for all complete game no hit shutouts with the pitcher allowing no more than one walk. From 1950+ there were 57 such games. For Lincecum, I looked for complete game shuouts with no more than one walk and at least 14 strikeouts. There were only 34. ---Rally (the person behind B-refs WAR numbers) What a great game 1 match up in the NLCS

"I always wanted to know what it was like to play meaningful baseball in New York and I'm going to have the opportunity." A quick trip to BR shows he's had a .385 BABIP in his last 48 PA's, and he's taken one walk in this stretch, producing a nice looking .378 .396 .556 .951 line. That totally outweighs the .237 .293 .369 .662 line he hung on the Mets in 447 PA's this season. I hope the Rangers re-sign him.
