Who Was the Real "Get" From the DeJesus Trade: Vin Mazzaro or Justin Marks?

Is Justin Marks the key to the David DeJesus trade, or is he just a random arm?

They Have Tools Off the Charts

The Royals' hopes for a return to prominence are built around three players: Zack Greinke, Billy Butler and Joakim Soria. All three are young and have already performed at a high level in the big-leagues. Beyond that, they have another group of young high-ceiling players who have not yet reached their potential: Alex Gordon, Luke Hochevar and, according to Moore, Yuniesky Betancourt and newcomer Rick Ankiel. "They have tools off the charts," Moore said.

John Buck is probably the best free agent option now for catcher. I have no idea why the Royals would let him go while picking up the corpse of Jason Kendall. Teams are still convinced that veteran catchers can have value above and beyond the numbers. The search to quantify that still goes on.

Royals Lose Peculiar Game to Twins

Bad plays, dumb plays, weird decisions, drama, random home runs. This game had it all, even a double-dose of St. Willie anti-heroism and a helluva game by Josh Anderson. Gotta love those guys!...

Royals Lose Again, Fall to 41-65. Really.

I've resigned myself to an understanding that this team is horrible for so long, that sometimes I almost know it so well that I end up forgetting it a little. The Royals are 41-65. They're now...

What is there left to say at this point? Dayton's the most reliable man in baseball right now. We started making jokes about his position player ideas two years ago, and the hits just keep on...

After Bizarre Betancourt Trade, There's Little Goodwill Left For Dayton Moore

Remember a few days ago when the Royals acquired Ryan Freel for no reason and it felt like the Royals had reached a definitive turning point? Apparently, that was only the moment when the Jack...

Percent Chance of Select Royals Hitters Hitting a Certain Number of Homers given 650 PAs in 2009, drawing on CHONE projections. If you need a closer look, click here. I already posted this at Royals Review, but given the recent fun with Excel's BINOMDIST function and the accompanying charts (not to mention how long it took it to get through my thick head), I thought I'd post it here. Those more in the know: is something like a binomial distribution roughly how stuff in projections systems like CHONE's percentiles and ZiPS' "Oddsinator" are generated?
