Right now my money would be on Aviles and Teahen losing more playing time than Callaspo will. He has been completely unreal at the plate lately and with the way the Royals are struggling for consistency on offense I can't see them sitting down the most effective bat in the lineup.

It's still a couple more months before Gordon is back....I wouldn't even worry about who will take over for who yet...alot can happen in a couple months. Maybe we deal 1 of Gordon, Butler, Teahen, DeJesus, Jacobs to free up some of the jam and go after some more pitching.

None of them are going anywhere unless KC completely falls out of the race before the All-Star Break. I'm not real worried about who will go where when Gordon gets back, it obviously a great problem to have. There has to be some expectation that when that time rolls around someone will play themselves out of the spot. My money is on Teahen, but moving someone to SS and sending Aviles down is the real intriguing scenario.

I'd rather have .270 with some pop and/or speed than a hollow .310. I would (and have) leave Callaspo alone unless playing in a very deep league.

That "hollow" batting average leads the AL in doubles, and is slugging nearly .600 right now. Obviously there is no way he will sustain his slugging numbers, but his minor league stats suggest that he is more than a punch and judy type hitter with OPS consistently above .800.

I think the most fair comparison for Callaspo is Hendrick. It's ironic because for awhile, it was debateable which was the better prospect in the Angels system. The bloom kind of came off Callaspo in '07 when he got arrested for spousal abuse while with the DBacks system. He was subsequently traded away and it has taken some time for him to emerge. There has never been a question that he could hit, as his minor league numbers can attest.
