What's the goal for Kansas Football?

29

Last season's goal was to be competitive and it worked half the time. Same goal, different verse in 2013?

Myers Goes Boom

2

A post from D Rays Bay with 10 Myers highlights at the plate. The power he's showing here shows why scouts have loved him. This isn't whining about the trade, his swing just looks so smooth in these clips that I had to share it here.

Sweet.

***Ex-Royals and current Tampa Bay Rays prospect Mike Montgomery threw seven no-hit innings for Triple-A Durham yesterday, although he also walked four guys. On the season he has a 4.05 ERA with a 19/11 K/BB in 26.2 innings. The report I have indicates that he's restored most of the velocity he lost in 2012, but his command remains spotty. Still, his chances in Tampa seem better than they were in Kansas City.

In the third inning Chris Getz made a couple of those plays that make his teammates hold him in high regard. Getz laid out for John Danks’ single to right, but didn’t come up with it. That seems like a nothing play, but teammates appreciate the effort. It did not escape anyone’s notice that Yuniesky Betancourt often didn’t dive on the same type of ball. As Mike Moustakas said, if you don’t dive, you don’t know if you could have made the play. (I originally gave Yuni the benefit of the doubt on this, but after talking to a few of his teammates, I changed my mind.)

This is why Judge gets accused of being a mouthpiece for the org.

There’s a theory floating around Kauffman Stadium that I’ve heard several times recently: Forget aces and No. 1 pitchers. Find five guys who can throw 200 innings and give the Royals quality starts. Find five No. 3 starters who can get you to the seventh inning with a chance to win.

Adjust your FA expectations accordingly.

Penders said the player, whom the coach declined to identify, spent one season at a Big 12 school before being drafted in the second round of the NBA draft. Penders said the AAU coach collected "six figures" from the Big 12 school that chose to engage in the scheme.

@lazyscience can you find a reason for Myers still being in AAA that isn’t either really stupid or really cynical? You won’t like hearing this, but I talked with a scout-type the other day who said, and I quote, "Wil Myers isn’t as good as people think he is, and he’s not as good as he thinks he is." Now, to be fair, this man thinks a lot of Myers. Thinks he’ll be a very good hitter in the big leagues, likes his strength, quick hands, all of those things. But he also points to Myers’ strikeouts — 90 of them in 87 minor league games at last count — as a bit of a red flag and something that will get exposed in the majors. My guy also said Myers’ rep defensively is pretty shaky, particularly with some Magellan-type routes on fly balls.
