I think my initiation lies with the circumstances around the injury.
Its Spring Training and I don't understand sliding in head first ? (because of the risk of injury)

Secondly, and thsi is all rumorville, but it was thrown around that he was sliding head first because his hip was/is still sore.

Anyhoo, I agree with those who say we need to keep him for now

It would be really telling if his hip is still sore. AROD had the same thing last year and came back just fine (although we don't know how much roids he needed to do that) to finish off the season. If AG is still suffering from this injury, he might just be too injury prone to ever expect much out of.

No offense, but they traded the wrong guy to the White Sox. All runners had been instructed to slide feet first. AG reminds me of Texas basketball...all potential, no results.

No, they traded the right guy. Teahen's not worth his paycheck at this point. And Gordon was much better than you think in '07 and '08.

Gordon is not that good in the infield, and his hitting has been spotty. He was great in college, but even the lowly Royals aren't college.

Gordon wasn't great, but he wasn't too shabby either.

I will defend AG and the Royals for drafting him when they did, but him reminds me so much of the 13-14 year old kids I coached. All they were interested in was blowing bubbles while fielding ground balls, making sure their pant legs covered the heal of their cleets, and going for style points like sliding head first when it isn't necesary on the field.
I'm hoping AG isn't as uncoachable as these kids were, his realized potential is needed on this team.
