    for years Royals needed pitching, they get it and no freaking hitting......Mondosi...send him DOWN or release him, he will never help the Royals..or any team...book it.

    Until his pitch recognition catches up he's pretty much useless as a starter. Pretty frustrating watching a snap swing be so late, and miss so badly.

    guess we shouldn't be hard on him, he does have a WS Ring....but its going to be some shit years again, just have to accept it but Duffy will be fun to watch over the next few years.

    Moss was a dumb signing, would have rather had Billy at that price. Orlando had his dream season, now getting killed after everyone knows what to throw him.

    Royals need to sign Paco Rodriguez and give a season in the minors, has the stuff to be a closer if he recovers from TJ.

    It was easy to see Cecil F eat his way out of MLB, can't believe Billy would. Surprised he isn't in Japan but then again they have too much healthy food over there.

    The Royals have the lowest rotation ERA through 15 games in 16 years. Duffy and Vargas have looked like Clayton Kershaw.

    They were just kidding when they sucked for all the years prior to this one.

    I hope you made mental notes of how good that felt. That series, and your win over Deacon Blues will likely be your baseball highlights for 2017.

    Remember when you made an avatar bet with Yapp and his team (THE CLEVELAND INDIANS) resulted in you morphing to Oprah?


    Goodtimes!

    Holy hell. That TB serious may have been the toughest series I've ever had to watch. Detroit should have came out dressed in clown suits. At least then the comedy of errors would have been appropriate.

    I can say -- I now understand why no one goes to watch TB. That dome makes the game unwatchable. Lost ball after lost ball in the dome roof. Crazy bounces. Guys running into each other. SS tripping over his own feet to give the game away. What a disaster that series was.

    Heard the Royals may be bringing up Jorge Bonifacio. Orlando is pretty much done, imo.

    I think you can document actual improvement with Duffy and has the movement to back it up. Vargas is obviously just hot with a pretty good changeup- he'll get whacked hard a few starts and people will overreact the other way with him.

    Call me a Moss apologist but he is well known to go in long slumps with concentrated hotstreaks, no? Take the good with the bad; give it some time first. If shit hits the fan I might be taking a peak at what O'Hearn and Dozier are doing, however.

    Lol @ a Rays fan distracting the Tigers outfielders. Speaks measures of just how shitty the attendance at Tropicana is if players can actually hear him.

    "The big boys" are heading to Minn with an 8-7 record. Verlander brings his 5.71 ERA to throw at the Twins.
