2007 Staff???

Postby Tavish » Sun Oct 22, 2006 8:53 pm

Any predictions on how the staff will shake out going into 2007?

Zach Greinke
Odalis Perez
Luke Hudson

Seem like the biggest "pencil me in" guys right now. The remaining slots will be a mix of some of these guys or free agents

Runelvys
Elarton (when healthy)
Redman
DeLaRosa
Gobble

While I'm not real thrilled about any of these guys to fill the last spots I could see Elarton and Redman back in there with Gobble once again relegated to the bullpen.

I'm tired of Runelvys and Gobble. Don't really look forward to seeing Elarton or Redman again either. DeLaRosa is fine as a 5th or spot starter, i'd like to see more of what he can do. I'm kinda just hoping we get a couple new arms via trade or FA. Other than that I'm fine with Grienke, Perez and Hudson for right now.... wish they were our 3,4,5 but what can ya do..... :~(

is Greinke that much of a lock for a rotation spot that you put him #1? I really didn't like Gobble a couple years ago when (I think) his k/9 is somewhere in the 2s. But he's been fine as a reliever last year and he should probably stay there.

though I like us to sign a FA, I don't think we should in this crazy market.

Rotation for 07
Odalis Perez
Luke Hudson
Zack Greinke
Runelvys Hernandez(though I hope not)
Jorge De La Rosa

in one word: ewwwww. And I actually have 2 of them(Greinke and Odalis) on my fantasy team.

With the Meche signing there is one more spot taken. The battle for the 5th spot should be interesting in Spring Training. What would be great would to see the Royals leave the Batista deal out there to fill the 5th spot and let DeLaRosa and Gobble battle it out for a spot start/ long relief role where both fit much better at. With Elarton looking to be back pre-AS break I don't see the Royals shelling out more cash for another starter though.

Greinke
Meche
Hudson
Perez
(Elarton) Gobble/DeLaRosa

If we're going to keep Gobble on the team I hope he stays in the pen.

As for the 5th spot I think its between DeLeRosa and Bannister at this point.


....how about 2009 starting staff?

1. Hochevar
2. "Another FA pickup"
3. Meche
4. Greinke
5. Lumsden/Bannister/Cordier/DeLeRosa....??

don't you think with the way the Royals pitching staff has been the past em, 4-5 years. It's hard to predict 1 years ahead much less 2?

Personally, I don't know if Greinke is a lock to start the season in the bigs. He needs to get his head right before he's any good to a team.

I think next year's staff will be as follows:

Meche
Hudson
Perez
Elarton
de la Rosa

Not to say that it won't change during the season, but I think that will be the rotation coming out of spring training.

This assumes the Royals don't do something crazy like signing Suppan or Pineiro.
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.
