KC's southpaw rotation

Postby drunkenmonkey » Thu Mar 18, 2004 9:40 pm

I was just going over depth charts and realized that Kansas City's projected starting five are all left handed. Has that ever happened in the history of baseball? I just thought that was an interesting fact and hadn't heard anybody mention it before.

Not all five but 4 of the five will be. They actually are planning a 4 man rotation unitl Appier gets back which should be around Mid to late April.

Anderson L
May L
Affedlt L
Gobble L
Appier R
Is the plan. Hope those L's turn into lots of W's.

Yep, look for the Yanks to come shopping late season when they have the bean town boys breathing down their necks. Still don't know why everyone is giving up on Boston already. I think they arguably have the best pitching staff in MLB (starting and bench).

(weird factiod: both Everly brothers were lefties, also)

I agree about the Boston staff. A four game series could really be frustrating when you face Pedro for game 1, get completely off-balance with Wakefield for 2, eat Schillings heat for 3, try to hit Lowe's breaking ball all day for game 4, and face a pretty good bullpen in Timlin, Sauerbeck, and eventually Foulke. Replacing Walker with Reese tightens up the defense in the middle, and that alone might get your starters another inning or two every start. Less wear and tear on the relievers is always good. Plus adding Foulke will add to everybodies win totals.

I also like the Mariners staff.

But back to KC, I love the fact they are lefty loaded. They are about the only team that is. However, I do question the bullpen. MacDougal came out hot last year then fizzled. Has that been solved? Those 4 big Boston guys, all right-handers. I think D May will have an awesome year this season.

I expect MacDougal to struggle and eventually Leskanic will get the closer job in KC...he did a decent job with the Brewers a couple of years ago...

Gotta love the Lefties!

I'll be a the "K" for opening day!

Actually I think Mac will be fine......Leskanic is there also....and I would not be surprised to see Grienke up my June 1 or so....the guy who I predict a stud season from is Affeldt....has the best deuce in the AL next to Zito
