This is why the Royals will forever stink...

Postby Slow Pitch » Wed Apr 30, 2008 7:09 pm

Why in the heck is David Dejesus batting 3rd?? They have Butler hitting 6th & most bizarre is Gordon hitting 7th vs a RHP. That should never ever happen.

They come out with a new line up configuration at least 3 times a week. Stick Gordon in the 3 hole & leave him there for better or for worse he is the future. You can argue Jose Guillen or Butler in the 4 & 6 six holes & Teahan should be slatted in the 5 spot.

Thats far from why we stink.....we are the worst offensive team in baseball. I have no problems if they shake it up a little bit....this shuffling of the lineup used to bug the hell out of me too but I quickly got over it after you realize we just don't have good enough players for it to matter. If we had a legit leadoff guy or a legit #3 or 4 guy I'm sure we would cement them there in that spot but until that day.....

As level-headed and well put together as that is, it's sad that you're at the point of readiness to roll over and just say 'F it'. :-b

Actually I'm pretty optimistic this year....I really like some of the pieces we have put together but when you've been as bad as we have the last decade it will take a couple years to dig yourself out of the hole we've been in. I'm far from ready to roll over....I'm just not a blind homer....I realize what we have and what we are! :-)

Haven't most studies shown that the lineup has little to no effect on the overall scoring. If anything wouldn't the ideal lineup just be to order them by their OBP?

You're right! You're nothing like Deeray! :-b

If only Butler was hitting more homers...

We will forever stink as long as players like Gathright and Pena are getting 400 PAs a year.
