Generally. I like a manager to keep a pretty consistent lineup.I dont see the reason to shuffle the lineup every day. However sometimes you do have to adjust. id move Cain, and Gordon up. I dont like Cain hitting leadoff, but right now id probably put him there. Move Gordon to 3.

The one thing that drives me crazy about Yost, and the thing un my opinion that keeps him from being a pretty good manager is his refusal to change things now and then. Even if its just for the sake of trying something new. Yost is the only manager I know that has a struggling team and doesnt go. "time to do something different just for the hell of it"

KC gets the least production out of their 1-3 hitters.  They would also get the worse out of 4 if Perez did not get a significant number of ABs.  What he is doing is not working.

The fact this is not a new concept or even one that " old school managers never used" is what irks me the most about Yost and his band of merrymen. Check this LU as an example,...

www.baseball-reference.com/box...197810060.shtml

Your eyes don't deceive you, that's they top 5 OPS guys on the club, the best hitter leading off (though there were better ones that year) before OPS was even a twinkle in anyone's eye....something about getting the most ABs for your best hitters is what the white rat had in mind methinks.....

This "lead off" hitter hit three HRs in this game.....

I'm convinced that the Royals major hurdle in beating the Yankees is their attitude towards them. We lose to the Yankees and the attitude is kind of like, 'well, it's the Yankees, what can we do?.' It must go back to the David Glass mantra about how we can never compete with the Yankees without a salary cap. That must have it hammered into their heads. We've pulled an Aaron Brooks on the Yanks a couple of times where we just call up a terrible pitcher to get hammered by them because we feel defeated before we face them. Now with this Jeter celebration. Just go out and think you can beat them. I'm tired of our defeatist attitude we have towards this team. Despite their enormous payroll, they are far from the best team in baseball. Get over it, and get mad.

I think the attitude from the very top is a big part of some of our struggles. Glass is all about profit or "breaking even". He wants a decent product on the field to help him achieve said goal. Winning and being a playoff team is secondary . If it happens thats great, but its not a priority. If its not a priority for the owner why would it be for the M, manager, or players? I dont think you will find the Rays, A's or any other owner for that matter talking about how much money he has or hasnt made on the eve of what should be(and still could be) his most successful on field season as owner

Are you guys ready for the announcers to do nothing but slobber all over the Yankees and Derek Jeter for the entirety of the game?

I think I just had a flashback. Butler and Gordon back-to-back doubles? What is this? 2011?

Other than Jeter, which guy on the Yankees' roster is a future Hall of Famer?

Beltran hopefully.
Tanaka with a pretty epic start.
