The guys who throw the baseballs will determine how far this team can go.
Really starting to feel like they're going to lean on the BP to provide more innings than originally thought. Would be interesting to see if they end up being buyers at the break and trade for a starter with a chance to re-sign him later.
I don't see much length at all in that starting rotation, which means that the bullpen guys are going to be overworked and need rest. Expect I-29 to be very busy this summer! And probably I-49 as well.
Interesting on Coleman. He’s got the highest upside of everyone in the bullpen probably. But you know what, if they have to send him down to a.) work on things, or b.) make a point that you better throw strikes I’m all for it. They have the depth in the beginning to cover. We’ve seen the wake up call work with Singer. I feel like Coleman IS the back inning reliever in waiting…maybe the guy by the end of the year but I’m just so tired of pitchers not throwing strikes that if they have to send him down its fine by me at this point.
Starters better stay healthy to start the year. If they get hit…you almost have to live with it until Bubic is ready to step in. Now that it is on paper that way and how they’ve done this spring. I’m even more fine with Lyles in the fold and Greinke coming back…..and ugh, they almost had to bring back Keller. I mean, you really compete next year…they either need quite a few starters to step up or are we getting to the point of trading Melendez for a young starter? Or really spend on someone who is actually good to bulk up this starting depth.
What is the best site, or which site do you recommend, we go to, to chat about Royals baseball? I've always wanted to know where most fans go to cuss and discuss KCR baseball. Thanks.
It's unbelievable to me that after all the arms we drafted over last 5/6 years, not one, not even one has distanced himself from the pack and flew through our minor leagues!! How could a team be so unlucky!! Hopefully this staff will get to one or two at least and a light will come on (so to speak).We could definitely use one or two!
Yep!! It gets a little more uncertain now that you’ve added the pitchers! Still, I hope the team comes together. Thanks David, for all the thought you’ve put into your Substack!
Even squinting I don't think I see Lynch as being a big league starter. But it is early, so I hope and totally believe my armchair amateur hunch could be wrong.
Is there anywhere I can easily search which player has what options left? (Most people didn't have internet access in my formative years)
Does anyone know if JBJ was the player with opt out clause if they don't make the 40? Others?
Hey Mr Leski, When do the Spring Training Playoffs Start. I'm also pretty sure we clinched home field advantage throughout.
