My Top Five Suggested Replacements for Trey Hillman

58
  1. Joe Torre. Is he ready to accept the ultimate challenge and massage the Royals into winners? Because he totally could.
  2. Bobby Valentine. The roller coaster saga of Joe Posnanski's enthusiasm followed by disillusionment makes this a no-brainer.
  3. Mike Sweeney. His faith makes him the near-perfect Dayton hire. His Baird-era connection makes him the perfect 2012 scapegoat. This Grass Creek double agent deserves a reward for his outstanding work.
  4. Tony Pena, Sr. Veteran leader Jason Kendall would give him plenty of clubhouse "slug," so this wouldn't just be about unintentional comedy. Okay, yes it would.
  5. Buddy Bell. He was right about at least one thing -- it can always get worse.

Is Dayton Moore the Bravest GM in Baseball, or the Bavasi-est? Miscellanea in the Betancourt Aftermath

You can find my "objective" analysis of the Betancourt trade at Driveline Mechanics (it also covers the Francoeur-Church trade, which is actually probably even awesomer). At Driveline, I pretend to...

Look at the top ten-twenty players listed at each position. Which is the most likable group of guys? The third basemen, I think. Four of them are famous for being nice people (Robinson, Mathews, Molitor, Hack), as were Pie Traynor and Buddy Bell, and the others are all OK, not a real asshole among them. Well, Graig Nettles could be a jerk sometimes.... The left fielders are the worst of the bunch; in the top thirty you've got Ted Williams, Rickey Henderson, Joe Jackson, Goose Goslin, Jim Rice, Jesse Burkett, Joe Medwick, Ralph Kiner, and Albert Belle. Boy, there's a family re-union you can leave me out of...

The Gordon injury got me thinking...

About something that I thought about last offseason.... Anyone remember last season, in Buddy Bells lack of infinite wisdom, when he was shuffling players around the diamond, and Alex Gordon wound...

The Joe Posnanski Drinking Game

Everyone loves Joe Posnanski. OK, I'm not sure about that. But everyone should love Joe Posnanski. I won't go into all the things that are great about Posnanski's columns, blogs, and books. That's b...

Hitting Rock Bottom - the Aftermath

I'm not sure if we've hit rock bottom for 2008, but I certainly hope so. I don't think it gets much worse than blowing a five run lead with two outs in the ninth to extend a losing streak to ten....

Closing the Book on Buddy Bell

Its been a bizarre twenty four hours on planet Royal. Since Tuesday morning we've witnessed the trade deadline, the Bell resignation announcement and now, the postponement of Thursday's game with...

Jenn Sterger is a Better Writer Than Me And What It Has To Do With Buddy Bell

As Adam Sandler once sang, "someone kill me please". Your humble blogger does his best to write about the Royals twice a day for the entire 162 game season; which isn't easy considering the Royals...

Royals Win Again, Trade J.P. Howell

So less than a year after he pointlessly debuted with the Royals, J.P. Howell was traded to Tampa Bay for Joey Gathright and infield prospect Fernando Cortez. Nothing like tearing down the Allard...

Off-Day

It's an off-day for our Royals, as they travel from Chicago to Colorado for a weekend set against the Rockies. Hopefully Bell's been making countless motivational speeches and "lookin' guys in the...
