Good post JFish, always good to keep up with those kids down in the farm system.

The Indians have taken a lot of their farm system players from the past couple of years and given them a shot in MLB this year. Those include: Lou Marson (C), Michael Brantley (OF), and Tony Sipp (RP).

One Indians player that could be making his impact on the franchise soon is Catcher Carlos Santana. The kid hit .290 with 23 bombs and 97 RBI last year in AA Akron.

I'm guessing he's still in extended spring training...don't know that rookie leagues have started yet.

This has giving me more motivation to still be a royals fan. I do have one Q about the royals, how is Mitch Maier up with the majors?

Mitch Maier is on the 25 roster because they have three starters who can't remain healthy over a 162 game season and the organization has nobody else at the AAA level ready.

Mitch Maier is on the team to hit RBI triples like he did tonight. Honestly name me one other outfielder you would like to see up with the Royals from AAA. Buck Coats?

Any lockdown set up men in this bright future because the Royals bullpen sans Soria sucks ass.

Good question. Having a great offense won't mean crap if the bullpen can't get outs.

The Royals to play well but the Twins to win. It'll be harder if the games ever matter for both teams.

meanwhile, to the west, the Rox lose another starter to the DL...

"Jorge De La Rosa, the winningest pitcher in the major leagues since June 1, 2009, is hurt and isn't coming back anytime soon."

We are in deep cat-sh!t for pitching, both starting and closer

Dammit Tejeda. Here we go again.


Question for those in the baseball know-how: Could Soria be used more? Could he be used in situations like today (down by 1 in the 9th) to hold the score and give the team a chance for a comeback? He doesn't seem to pitch much as it is.
