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.

Five Bits of Advice for Sam Mellinger Upon His Promotion to Columnist for the KC Star

10
  1. If you're going to pick a pitcher for a man-crush and series of columns, make sure and do so during a season in which he's going to gets shelled into oblivion.
  2. Play your cards right, and one day you might just get an unsolicited phone call from Mike Sweeney in order to further explain his long-awaited admission that , during the 2000 season, after having a blackberry schnapps, he once snapped and called Ann Landers a "boring old biddy."
  3. "What is Ken Harvey up to now? " is good for at least one column a season.
  4. Savor the feeling of this promotion. You will remember this day for the rest of your life.

Revising Poz's 2010 Royals lineup

It's been a while since I did a FanPost here, but it's a lazy Saturday (it shouldn't be, I'm insanely busy). I noticed that Joe Posnanski posted what he thinks is the likely (not his preferred)...

But I’m now going to give you a mystery that has no answer that I can come up with. The mystery is this: How is it even remotely possible that the Kansas City Royals cleanup hitters — THEIR CLEANUP HITTERS — are hitting .211/.278/.301 this year? How? Seriously. How? You probably saw this in the Baseball Reference Blog — and it boggles the mind. They list off what the cleanup hitters have done for all 30 teams. The Royals cleanup hitters are hitting 18 points worse than any other team, they are on-basing 19 points lower than any team, and they are slugging NINETY-EIGHT points lower than any team. The Royals cleanup hitters are hitting worse than a replacement level catcher. I’m going to repeat that but with italics: The Royals cleanup hitters are hitting worse than a replacement level catcher.

Banny's Best Pitches Are Belt-High

Good stuff at BtBS by Harry Pavlidis, the guy who did the "Soria as a Starter?" series at THT. Still getting a grasp on all this pitch f/x run value by location stuff, but worth checking out.
