• at the point I would say yes. I would much rather watch him then Will Smith.

  • It’s hard with the young players, I hope Will Smith is learning something. If he has to take some beatings now to become a solid middle to end of the rotation guy down the road, I’ll take it.

  • That’s you. Im sick of watching minor league baseball in a major league park in hopes to have MLB players some day. It’s a joke.

  • I understand your frustration, it seems we just allow bad pitchers to continue to take the mound. I think Hoch has had enough time as well.

  • Hoch is done. He’s got good stuff but he can not put it together for 5-7 innings on a consistent basis. You might not want to say anything too negative about the Royals. They don’t like it. That’s why they did not bring Frank White back. He was too ”negative”. Now we have another clown in the booth.

  • I can get negative in my own time, I want to promote the Royals and share my passion about the organization. However, that comes with plenty of frustration. I see your point though. Rex Hudler’s comment the other night was priceless…

    “Foul off all the close pitches until he gives you the cookie.”

    Amazing.

  • passion about the organization? lol…How about Melkey? #1 in hits in the NL! Meanwhile jonathan sanchez is AAA. This team will never be any good as long as WalMart is running it.

    He wants to win a Championship on Wal Mart wages.

  • I have to admit I loved Melkey and I didn’t like the trade, but we’ve got some pretty good outfielders in the minors. Looking forward to Myers coming up

  • Yeah, we are always ”looking forward” in 2015 we will be “looking forward”

  • I’m up in the air about giving Moyer a look.

    On the plus, he would be able to come right in and start.

    On the minus, is starting a guy that old a step in the wrong direction?

  • I think starting guys who should be in AA is the wrong direction.

  • I think from the Royals as an organization it would be a step in the wrong direction since we are pushing the youth movement. Although I am all for production on the field, regardless of age.

  • It does not matter if it’s Jamie or Will Smith, the both suck and will get rocked. We should be talking about trying to get Cole Hammels who is a FA after this year. But a 218 million dollar pichter will never happen with Walmart running the team.

  • Just making sure… You do realize how ridiculous you sound when you say Walmart is running the team, right?

  • No, not at all. Have you EVER looked at the wiki on David Glass? It even says that he is one of the worst owners in sports for running the team like walmart.

  • Do you know how ridiculous the Royals look with will smith on the mound?

  • 1 – Wikipedia can be changed by anyone who wants to make a change. 2 – Walmart actually pays people much more than many business to jobs which require little or no skill.

    Yes, Will Smith looks ridiculous on the mound.

  • Really? Because I worked for walmart. Did you know that Walmart cost the taxpayer over 1 billion dollars a year because most employee’s qualify and are on government assistance because the pay so little?

  • Mark Poulose

    It definitely is an interesting thing to think about. I would say yes–why not give him a chance? It’s not like the players we are throwing out there now aside from Chen and Paulino are pitching any better. Also, Jeff Francis was released by the Reds earlier today. Things to think about. Might help us contend this year in a horrible division.

  • Wal Mart cares about the bottom line. And so do the Royals. David Glass was CEO of Wal Mart in it’s prime.

  • @Mark – Neither of those guys will cost anything… And both could be an improvement in the rotation. If the Royals are serious about getting back in to the race… Why not give them a shot? Worst case, release them again.

  • No to Moyer, No to Francis!

  • I agree with Travis, it couldn’t hurt at this point. The Royals went out and signed 36 year old Doug Davis and he’s in AAA at the moment, he had a horrible last 2 years but we felt he was worth something. Why not Moyer?

  • We signed Suppan last year, he was pretty good at AAA, we never brought him up.
