Gonzalez....what a slug!!!

Postby ondeckb » Fri May 07, 2004 10:03 pm

Did you see how he played that ball in the corner that allowed Ramirez to score the WINNING run.....he couldn't hustle if his butt was on fire. Same thing on the play before that.....Desi had to make an amazing play cuz Gonzalez wouldn't get off his ass. We had this game in the bag.....I'm really frustrated now..... :~(

Maybe he still is feeling sick? Poor Gonzo and his guaranteed contract. I feel sorry for you royals fans that are going to have to put up with him. The guy has always been a pansy even when he had some of his monster years in Texas, and that one good one with Cleveland he'd only play 130 games or something.

KC you have my sympathy.

Juan you have a :-t .

And don't give him any ideas about the butt on fire.... He could use that as an excuse to not play :-b .

Yeah but in reality it should have never come to that. We need a closer that can actually throw strikes.

Hmmm alright, doesn't take much talking into to make me smack on Juan "When is he gonna be" Gone.

He currently putting up one of the worst fielding performances in the history of the Royals. A .946 Feilding Percentage put him in the bottom third of the league, and the errors only account for part of his problem. His determination to jog at any ball hit in his direction has allowed several hits to fall that could have been reached easily with any sort of effort. Having Beltran in center has been his greatest salvation allowing him to only really attempt balls at him or to his left.

On a offensive production note, he has always been a streaky hitter. He can get RBI's and HR's in bunches, but so far he has been a failure when it comes to clutch hitting. The 3-run jack in the Rangers game may be the first meaningful hit of the year for him. Most others coming in the "bases empty HR down by 5" variety or "base hit up by 7". With a game on the line there are only one or two players I would take Juan batting over on the club.

He might turn it around and be a productive guy. I hope so, but he is going to have to do a lot more now to get back in the good graces of the fans. 40 HR 100 RBIs might not be enough anymore with the utter lack of effort he has shown when the team is struggling and needs him the most.
