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.

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.

Hillman's Fantasy: Small-Ball Royals Bury White Sox

Love is an amazing thing. It makes you patient when you shouldn't be. It makes you faithful and hopeful, when all the evidence says you shouldn't be. For most of the season, the Royals have done...

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!

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?

King-Sized Letdown as Royals Blasted by A's in Long-Awaited Luke Hochevar Debut

I know you're angry! (Harvey Milk voice) I'm angry! But hey, Cleveland is 12-22! (crowd cheers madly) ## So, it was another loss, only this one was a laugher, a game that was over by the third...

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...
