Trey Hillman: An Emblem for a Stubborn and Backwards Franchise

Trey Hillman's stubborn refusal to adapt or change makes him the perfect Royal. Old-school baseball doesn't make much sense anymore, given that it's key component, the magical closer, produces more...

We'll all look back on this someday and laugh. I think. Rather than posting a game recap, I decided to keep it short tonight, share some links, and gear up for All-Star week. Be sure to hit Royals...

Trey Hillman has done plenty that's worth questioning -- the above paragraph included -- but no big league manager should even have as an option substituting Hulett for Hernandez for Pena.

Mellinger. Dayton Moore isn't mentioned in the article.I guess it's just one of those things -- the team just has these guys, and can't do anything about it. I also like the part of the article where it talks about the Braves wanting to trade Yunel Escobar to some team, but only if that other team could offer a better-hitting SS in return. I can't imagine why they can't find a trade partner!

Potential Royals Trade Target Not Quite as Sucky as Tony Pena, Jr.

57

Peter Bendix discusses the past and future of Jeff "Frenchy" Francoeur in light of his horrible 2008 season. It's interesting in light of Franoeur coming up in discussions of possible Royals trade targets (although this might just be the fans). He concludes that Frenchy might still have a shot at being a decent hitter, despite his lack of plate discipline. But what really caught my eye was this: "If not for the horrendously awful Tony Pena Jr., Francoeur would have the lowest VORP in all of baseball." To be fair, the editor does note that "all numbers are as of Friday. And this weekend Corey Patterson has a surge of suckitude to vault into second-to-worst in VORP, making Jeff Francoeur the third least productive player in baseball this year." YAY. So many easy jokes, so little time...
