Re: Game Day 7/1 vs. Twins - Raul in RF 


that's in LF, Raul is far better in right field i'm sure



The Royals outfield is unique. Alex Gordon has the best arm in the outfield, he's the best fielder. But due to the whole gold glove thing, Alex Gordon will never be moved to right field.

Re: Game Day 7/1 vs. Twins - Raul in RF 


Surprised that an organization that values defense SO highly, is a desperate enough to put Ibanez in the OF....

ESPECIALLY considering the way Dyson has been hitting lately against RH pitching (the difference in defense between he and Ibanez is obviously astronomic).

Guess I should have known though.....just no way Ibanez is going to see much time at DH or 1B with those in charge calling the shots.

He also shouldn't see a PA against a LH pitcher at this point.

Hopefully he catches fire in the next week or so....otherwise, I can see this as a very short lived reunion.

I'm not sure what my reaction should be tonight after Ibanez hits a 3 run shot in the 4th to put the Royals up, only to have another play in RF to add to his gif collection in the 6th to blow the lead.

Picturing Shields finally throwing a brilliant 7 innings only to get tagged with a loss on an unearned run due to the Ibanez circus out in right field....

FWIW.....McCullough with the Star just tweeted a little bit ago that Rusty Kuntz was hitting flyballs to Aoki.

Have to think Aoki is pretty close to returning.

Also this from McCullough.....

If Glass really handcuffs Dayton Moore when he's on the cusp of a big deal, then that is beyond insane. He held payroll down, received a gift from Gil Meche..... Only to deny GMDM the funds he needs to make a big move. If true, then there really is little to NO hope for this franchise. 


Looks like he sold Donnie Joseph, just to make some money to add Ibanez.     disbelief

If the Royals are really in contention come July 31st, and cant make the big deal because of money Glass should put the team up for sale and get out of KC, because fan support for him will be gone

There is skepticism on this board about the Royals ability to add payroll, or to do anything positive for that matter. I wouldn't worry what rival execs think.

I do think its possible DM is telling GM's in trade talks he needs cash as a part of negotiating, but with Glass you always have to be skeptical when it comes to money

don't worry, he won't hit a 3 run HR for KC the rest of the year.

he's not going to spend the money, you know this, how long has Glass owned the Royals now?  How long has he not spent money?  Regardless of fan support, Glass still makes money off the Royals through the TV deal luxury tax rebates, which he always pockets instead of investing into the team. 

 

Come on Cerner, buy the Royals.

I truly hope that doesnt end up being the case. My hope is he sees the opportunity to win and long term make more money. I fear thats not the case though. It will most likely be about the short term bottom line. If that ends up being the case do you hang around if your Dayton Moore?

Ibanez is a chance for the Royals to see if he can play RF better than Aoki.  If the range is comparable and Ibanez show pop, Aoki gets put out for "rehab" starts, then DFA'd/traded after the AS break.  If not, then good bye Raul.

Yes, you do. Dayton is not going to get another GM job right away. It took him too long to build the Royals and it's not as if he built a flawless team. (See, Raul Ibanez in RF tonight.) If Dayton wants to work as a GM somewhere else, he'll work withing the budget in a desperate attempt to make the playoffs.

Wishing Ibanez was subbing for Erica Hosmer or Fatler. This organization clearly does not like Dyson, or at least does not think highly of him.
