So glad the Royals used a small sample size to make a dumb decision.

Yuni will play at least five games per week, which will include opening day.

Just waiting for the announcement that Paulino will be sent to the bullpen.

Where do you want me to deliver the trophy, Detroit?

I know Gio wasn't hitting the ball off the cover but this move is HUH??? I thought the slogan was our time and not a year from now.

The whole Yuni back to KC as a back up, I was okay with after the initial shock of it.

Yuni as an everyday player. I'm livid.

I want Gio as the Royals 2nd baseman, but not when he can't hit worth shiit. Get it together in Omaha.
Yuni playing SS everyday last year didn't keep Milwaukee out of the playoffs.

That's all the more impressive. Yuni will do nothing but hold the Royals back, we've seen this before.

Getz will be starting, not Yuni. Gio will be back as soon as he improves his defense.

Actually they had a fairly good size sample size, spring training this year and the games he played last year. Plenty of time to determine his glove isn't what it should be at this level.

They were talking today about a platoon between Yuni and Getz.

Yuni against lefties, Getz against righties

Neither one are acceptable options for a team who supposedly has "almost turned the corner" as I keep getting told.

I actually am ok with sending him down.

If he's not getting the job done, get somebody in there who is.

Just because he's a highly touted prospect means nothing if the manager doesn't think you're doing a good enough job to win the 2B gig.

I kind of like getting rid of the days of just handing the job to a prospect because it's a cost-effective move or just because they are a prospect.

I am okay with sending a prospect down to get more seasoning if he needs it. I am not okay with fielding a team with Getz or Yuni as platoon players.

2B is definitely the weak link on the team (outside of starting pitching). But it happens. You don't just go from 100 loss teams every season to being set at every position.

Second base is where I would want my weakest link to be. Not that I want there to be a weak link.
