Yesterday’s game was an exhibition of managerial malpractice almost unparalleled in the history of the franchise. Hillman could hardly have damaged the Royals’ chances to win the game more if he had tried. It is exceedingly important that every Royals fan understand the extent to which Hillman hurt both his team’s chances of winning last night, and his most well-paid pitcher’s chances of earning his generous contract for well into the future.

I will say that I've been educated about sample sizes and the true value of a player's abilities. If a player has a hot week in October, I don't think that necessarily gives you an idea of his abilities.

Brian Cashman. I guess we now know why Trey didn't get the Yankees job (emphasis above mine). Cashman comes off as smart as usual, although there's some silly stuff in there. We'll just have to compare it to Dayton Moore's RR interview.

"[I like] the commitment that [Betancourt's] shown in wanting to improve his lateral range and get it back to where it was a few years ago. Because it's a little bit off, reportedly, from what it was when he first came up with Seattle," Hillman said.

Looming in the background, of course, is Willie Bloomquist, who played seven different positions and made just 10 errors despite all the switching around. "He's unbelievable. Willie can do all," Hillman said. "Willie's our ace in the hole. He's one of those guys who'll never get the credit he's due."

This whole article is full of brilliant nuggets of wisdom from Trey and Dayton on defensive stats and what makes a good player. Who better to learn from? Best Royals.com article in a long time.

"There’s so much to be gained from process," Irvin told me and two Miami radio hosts. "Professional athletics doesn’t have time for process. Athletes are given wealth instantly. We live in a society that used to prepare meals in a process and put them in the oven to bake and now we put things in a microwave and eat right away. We’re into instant gratification. We’ve lost the process. We’ve lost patience."

It was a solid performance for Hughes, a 27-year-old left-hander who was selected in the 11th round of the 2003 draft. He was 3-3 with a 3.50 ERA at Class AAA Omaha. "He was outstanding," Hillman said. "When you bring a guy into that situation, you know it’s their major-league debut, you kind of take extra notice what you think their heart rate is, the look in their eyes. He wasn’t intimidated."

It's always about the eyes with Trey. He must have some 6th sense. From Here.

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!

You can already see it helping. He was able to foul off some pitches (Tuesday) that he would normally swing through. Trey Hillman on Jacobs adjusting his swing.

Shin Soo Choo hit a single off a freakin' seagull in the 10th, driving in the winning run. Learning to play the seagull carom in Progressive Field is one of those things visiting defenders just don't have time to master in a short series. Oh, and now that the memories of the Royals' early-season friskiness have long since passed, can we just get to the end game on Trey Hillman and save everyone a lot of hassle?
