Guys, we're forgetting one important point in this discussion. The Royals management has no clue on how to run a team or how to use players.
They've already brought up Justin Huber, another top prospect, to sit on the bench and be a pinch hitter. They think he's somehow going to develop quickly if he plays only one or two days a week in the majors rather than 5 days in AAA. They're playing Mientkiewicz in front of him for God's sakes.
If they do call up Gordon, they'll probably call up Teahen at the same time, and then sit Gordon behind him.
If it's not apparent already, I'm a bitter Royals fan.
I never smile if I can help it.... Showing one's teeth is a submission signal in primates. When someone smiles at me, all I see is a chimpanzee begging for its life.
