AL Central Farm System Values


Part of an interesting series over at Beyond the Box Score. I don't know much about this stuff, but it's worth checking out. He calls the Royals' system "underrated." Beware, the author doesn't say that the Royals have 2-3 aces in the making or compare Little Guido to Chase Utley, so he might be another just another jerk who is totally biased against KC and doesn't know what he's talking about.

Kevin Goldstein on Giavotella, Moustakas and Kaaihue

BL (Bozeman, MT): You've seen Johnny Giovatella (Burlington) play, I think characterized him as having a low ceiling but a great approach. Can he move quickly, and can he be a second base solution for KC? Kevin Goldstein: Yes and yes. Not a star, but solid. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Base (Burque): Is this the type of season Royals' fans should expect from Moustakas? Medium-well avg w/ well-done power numbers? ( why don't scouts use steak temperatures as adjectives? Seems natural) Kevin Goldstein: No. He's better than the whole of his season. He really took a while to get going, and that's totally understandable. I think he's a monster and that the .321/.392/.557 line he put up after the all-star break is more indicative of his true talent. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Trey Hillman (KC): Should I say "screw Shealy and Gload" and just play Kila full time here on out? Kevin Goldstein: I think you should. He's the guy with a chance at filling that spot next year, so let's see what you got.
