Parks on Ventura

16

"JohnBotelho (Chestnut Hill, MA): Who are your way too early predicitions for Rookie of the Year in each league? Jason Parks: In the AL, I'll go with Yordano Ventura. I think he's going to surprise people in the rotation. In the NL, I'll go with Chris Owings. Not a star player, but easy role 5 (and perhaps more) that should produce at a premium spot."

OT: Breitbart Sports Manufactures Ridiculous Statistic

Can anyone follow the logic of this piece? I, for one, am suspicious of any metric that has Jeremy Guthrie as a more valuable pitcher than Ervin Santana.

Though our Royals did poorly this weekend, I still thought I would share a few pics from PNC Park from the Saturday and Sunday games. My wonderful wife got tickets as a birthday gift (as we only...

BA Royals Top Ten (Free Version)

Just the free list. However, the top picks of the last decade is one of the most interesting pieces of data. Other than Lubanski, it is clear that KC is drafting better with the 1st pick.

Mothership throwing chum to the sharks (Eiland)

"9. Can Dave Eiland, the new pitching coach, really cut down on all those bases on balls? For the answer on that, check the final averages next Oct. 3. The figures for 2011 weren't pleasant to look at -- the Royals' 557 walks were the most in the American League, 121 more than Seattle's AL low 436 and 61 above the league average of 496. With the roster jammed with younger pitchers, Yost believes that Eiland can solve the problem by refining their mechanics to where, if they get out of sync, they can return quickly to the proper slot, release point or other delivery component. Eiland is also charged with developing a detailed game plan for each pitcher's outing, which Yost said was lacking in the past. Youngsters like Duffy, Tim Collins and Jeremy Jeffress will be among Eiland's primary pupils." Discuss...

Rany: Royals making doubles history

11

If Butler and Melky hit a few more, we will be in historic territory. It is a weird stat, but as Royals fans, you take your (good) history where you can get it.

Paulino might be able to keep this up

33

Interesting read on improved pitch selection and platoon splits since we have picked him up. On a day after that garbage yesterday, any (good) reason for optimism is welcome

Aaron Crow almost qualifies for Type B

8

Melky, Frenchy, and Betemit are also close. Gordon now qualifies. Bruce Chen looks to be our only real Type B free agent at the end of the year. That is as good of a reason as any to keep him over Francis.

A little old for the league, but it looks like he might be ready for AA soon. Not great season numbers, but look at the last couple of starts.

Royals middle of the pack in Int'l FA Talent

This is a good read, though not a lot of new information. Right now, we are right in the middle of the list of international prospects in our Top 30. Given the only recent commitment to becoming a player in this area, I expect this number to increase significantly in the near future.

This ought to give you the creeps.

Odds on a no-no The perfect game Sunday by Oakland’s Dallas Braden against Tampa Bay prompted BetUs.com to post odds on the next pitcher this season to throw a no-hitter or a perfect game. Zack Greinke is listed at 8-1 along with four other pitchers and behind seven other pitchers. The most likely is San Francisco’s Tim Lincecum at 9-2, followed by Boston’s Jon Lester and Philadelphia’s Roy Halladay at 5-1. BetUs.com made no mention of whether the guy pitching the next no-hitter will win it.

"The Royals entered the day leading all 30 teams with a .313 average and all American League teams with 163 runs. That was before generating 10 more runs and 19 more hits." I know it is only spring training, and a lot has come at the end of the games, but...

Seiler on Deck McGuire

13

Pretty good inning-by-inning report. From the report, he comes off as a polished mid rotation starter. Low 90s velocity, but 4 average-to-plus pitches. I'm pretty sure I've seen Royals Retro be keen on him, and it seems the Padres are as well.

4 Royals Prospects invited to Spring Training

Other than that, he doesn’t expect much to change, even with Cy Young being part of his title now. He dealt with a lot of this last year, with the Sports Illustrated cover and All-Star Game, so it shouldn’t all be new. Even that extra attention he gets at the gym is a bit, well, maybe it’s best if he explains. "No one really recognizes me," he says. "The way they do, one person recognizes me, and then they tell someone else and so eventually they all hear I play baseball. But a couple guys were calling me ‘Tim’ at the gym, because they thought I was (NL Cy Young winner) Tim Lincecum. That’s how it is."
