What will Hochevar's role be in 2012 & beyond?

Some posters on this site seem adamant that Luke Hochevar has a bleak future as a MLB starter based on some statistics, while another segment of posters seem to think that he is a league average SP...

Highlights... "Don't bring up Lorenzo Cain...because we have to wait til we just unload Jeff Francouer for some hack arm who might be good enough to give up 14 runs in 2 & 2/3 so that we can play Lorenzo Cain every single day, and then have some other imposter of a big-leaguer like Jerrod Dyson be our 4th outfielder. Instead of god forbid, keep Cabrera, and Francouer, and Gordon and have Meier and Cain! Have BOTH of them! WHAT?!?! You mean have FIVE legitimate big-leaguers on your roster that can play the OF? With options of RH & LH along with a switch hitter? Multiple guys that can play centerfield and actually hit the baseball out of the infield?! NOOO! NOOO! We've got to trade Melky Cabrera for Sean O'Sullivan, or Vin Mazzarro, or some other hump that Billy Beane farted out after dinner last night and knows is worthless that we can hang our hat on & go, 'Well, ya know, he might be able to get us 170 innings of 5.00 ERA baseball. 'Cause god knows we aren't gonna move any of our prospects. We don't wanna go get Chad Billingsly or big league pitchers that actually get people out, we want to keep everybody down in the Minor Leagues.' "Ned Yost flapping his gums about the balk is embarrassing. There are bigger fish to fry. There is an elephant sitting on your head and WIGGLING! That's how big the problem is, and you're worried about....NOTHING! It's embarrasing! (in Yost voice) "Ahh, I didn't see a balk! The intent of the rule is..." SHUT UP!!! SHUT UP!!! Be a part of a winner! Win SOMETHING! Stop quoting me BObby Cox. Win some games, then I'll listen to you nitpick the umpire." "And definitely don't waste my time trying to vote a SECOND Royal into the All-Star game! I'd be embarrassed to see this franchise get a second Royal in. I won't vote! Hell NO I won't vote. I won't go near it. Somebody else can be a stooge for the organization! Win some games, spend some money, then come ask me to rally the troops to vote one of your players into the All-Star game. BITE ME!!!!

Greinke Shows Public Frustration at Royals Youth Movement

"Every system has something," he said. "The biggest problem is I have two more years on my contract. Are those guys supposed to make it up by the beginning of next year?" Read more: http://www.kansascity.com/2010/08/05/2130939/royals-greinke-isnt-happy.html#ixzz0vlBI2A6s Kind of sounds like without significant improvements in KC, Zack is preparing to exit after his contract is up. I figure this means we'll see one of two things. 1) The patented GMDM freak out, where he signs any veteran that will come to KC to subdue Zack's fears. 2) Zack will be traded this off season or by the deadline next summer.

OT: Lebron James' Mom & Delonte West?

So, obviously this one is off-topic...but seriously? As Steven St. John said on 810 this morning, it isn't exactly likely that this is true, but given the crazy nature of Delonte West & Gloria James, it isn't exactly out of the realm of believability. Anyway, the gist of the 'story' is implying that Lebron found out after game 3 in the Celtic's series, and that this ruined all team chemistry. IF it is true, it is one of the greatest (worst) sports stories ever...

I want to trade for this player

10

I'm not sure if the link will work or not, since it is an ESPN Insider piece, but here's the nuts & bolts of it... "Why are the Marlins so eager to trade Dan Uggla? The answer was evident Monday when Chris Coghlan was named National League Rookie of the Year. Coghlan was shifted to the outfield this summer, but Florida can move back to his more natural position at second base if Uggla is unloaded. An unnamed general manager said the Marlins' No. 1 priority is to trade Dan Uggla for younger and less expensive players, reports the Miami Herald. "There's a decent market for him," aid the GM, who added that Emilio Bonifacio could replace Uggla at second base. We talked last week about how the Marlins are expected to aggressively shop this winter, and two clubs that have expressed strong interest are the Baltimore Orioles and San Francisco Giants. The key note shared by FoxSports.com is that both clubs view Uggla as a third baseman, rather than his natural position of second base. David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution wrote Thursday that the Braves could have interest in Uggla to play left field. Does that put an Uggla-Javier Vazquez deal in the offing?" If other teams think he can play 2B/3B/LF/RF potentially, I say he is a perfect fit, because potentially, all of those are needs for KC (3B if AG moves to 1B)...just plug him into the weakest spot, and immediately have a big offensive boost. His UZR @ 2B has been up & down, but the downs have been more extreme than his ups, so I don't think he's going to win any gold gloves, but he is a high OBP guy that has some pop that is coming off a down year, I say we make a run at him...

If he goes through with his threat of pulling KC's "promised" All-Star game, due to KC ignoring the draft slotting system as it was rumored earlier this summmer, in favor of Boston for Fenway's 100th anniversary, MLB should face SERIOUS litigation from KC businesses, Royals Ownership and others... The meat of the article... The most prominent players who have signed with the Sox in recent days include: –3rd-round pick David Renfroe (signed for $1.4 million), a pitcher and shortstop who earned some comparisons to David Wright; he will be groomed as a position player with the Sox –7th-round pick Madison Younginer (signed for $975,000), a right-handed pitcher with a fastball that touches the high-90s and a slider that made his high-school opponents weep –10th-round pick Brandon Jacobs (signed for $750,000), a powerful running back and outfielder who has what Sox amateur scouting director Jason McLeod describes as "goofy power" –11th-round pick Justin Thompson (signed for $300,000), a shortstop who can also play second and third and shows a solid all-around game –18th-round pick Renny Parthemore (signed for $150,000) is a right-handed power arm who shows the potential for an above average fastball and curve –26th-round pick Miles Head (signed for $335,000, according to Jim Callis of Baseball America) is a corner infielder who showed significant power in several high school showcase events
