My Top Five Suggested Replacements for Trey Hillman

  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...

[Ryan Langerhans is] 29, has about 1200 PA (two full seasons), his career wOBA is .314 (-7 per 150 G), and his UZR at a "neutral" position is +7 per 150 G. That’s a league average performance. MLB average. It’s sad for him that he’s been given a short shrift for so long. Willie Bloomquist, your typical white guy who scratches and claws his way into a lineup, is a barely above replacement level player, who has over 1600 PA in MLB, and has been around since 2002. The difference? He throws with his right hand, which means he gets to play the infield. Mom & Dad, whatever you do, make your son throw with his right hand (and bat with his left). If he insists on throwing with his left hand, make sure he practices his hitting alot or works on his control as a pitcher.

Conspiracy Theory Rock Part III: Revenge of the 'Stache!

In Part One and Part Two of my series of conspiracy theories for why the Kansas City Royals have seen their "magical" 2009 season tank right before their eyes, I examined how Trey Hillman's...

For years, people have been wondering what would happen if the Mariners got to play against Willie Ballgame, or Miguel Olivo, or Horacio Ramirez, or a whole team full of Mariner cast-offs. Now we have our answer. The Mariners would get the shit kicked out of them.

If you're the Mariners, you gotta look in the mirror after this one and ask yourself what you're made of. The Royals threw their two worst pitchers at them in Ponson and Ramirez, and they were still shut down. They should be glad that Trey Hillman didn't throw Kyle Farnsworth out there for further humiliation. Oh wait...

Chad Cordero Signs a minor league deal with the Mariners

Oh well, it would have been nice, but if the Mariners got him on this deal, it probably would have taken 2/$9.5M with a $1M club option for 2010 for the Royals to get him.
