This offense is offensive. Clearly, Seitzer was the problem.

If they don't wake up the bats soon, they won't make it out of May above .500.

Ironically, Moose is 2 for 2 so far (only two Royals' hits).

Just after I say that Baltimore scores on a wild pitch by Mendoza. The Royals are looking like a Little League team right now.

Makes you wonder why the Royals have a Hitting Coach and Assistant Hitting Coach.

Maybe because Jack Maloof never made it out of the minors and had to go to Japan to play.

Why did we hires these two guys again? Oh.... the Atlanta Brave Pipeline connection for Dayton. Why Dayton isn't social and capable of building a connection other than just Atlanta, I don't know.

Every team has a 3-gamer.

The reason we spent $$ on the rotation this winter is so these 3-gamers don't become 7-10 gamers.

Hopefully the Royals can get back on track tomorrow and into this weekend v. NYY.

To what someone said earlier: I can't wait until Francoeur is gone either.

The guy takes some of the worst ABs I remember seeing. He swings for the fences half the [censored] time and he doesn't even have that much power. Just get someone in RF who can hit decently for contact if nothing else.

I think the fans appreciate a player who gives back with buying pizza for the fans vs. a player who tries to bunt to get a single and doesn't buy pizza.


Give me Frenchy over the speed with no power. Frenchy could hit the ball one day and it go over the fence and win your a ball game that way. I have never seen a bunt that is not a suicide squeeze change the course of the game with 1 pitch.

How many pizzas do you suppose Francouer should buy for the fans in order for them to get their money's worth from him?

2013 salaries:
Francouer: $6,750,000
Dyson: $500,000

If he buys $6 million in pizza for the fans this season, are the two players roughly of equal value?

True, he does have that home run to his credit this season. Only 28 unproductive ABs (Ks) to get that one HR.

2013 strikeout rate:
Francouer: 1K/3.8 ABs
Dyson: 1K/6.0 ABs

2013 averages
Francouer: .234/.274/.336
Dyson: .250/.250/.458

too small of a sample size? OK...

2012 strikeout rate:
Francouer: 1K/4.7 ABs
Dyson: 1K/5.2 ABs

2012 averages
Francouer: .235/.287/.378
Dyson: .260/.328/.322


I simply don't believe Francouer's mild power threat is worth all the unproductive ABs. There is probably some fancy sabremetric way to compare his 16 HRs in 2012 to Dyson's stolen base total (which projected to 57 if given the same number of ABs Francouer had). Maybe runs/AB would be a rough proxy:

2012 runs/AB
Francouer: 0.10
Dyson: 0.18


I'm not saying Dyson is the long-term answer (nor am I saying I'm a huge fan of the sacrifice bunt). He's not. But the Royals absolutely must value outs more than they do. In a spacious ballpark, you have to be giving more of Francouer's ABs to Dyson. Pizza or no pizza.

Both clearly provide no edge looking back so other factors should be considered. Who has the better arm for defensive purposes? Frenchy is a clear winner.

Who could win a game for you with 1AB a month is something I think gives Frenchy an edge in addition to this being a contract year for him, I would expect his A game and effort the rest of the season.

If Frenchy has to take some player enhancement to explain a sudden rush, no one will care until next year when it's disclosed.

Would you go with a veteran or rookie? Most managers will go with a guy who may not be at his prime, but any given day could resemble a player he once was if only for a little while.


The only thing that matters is who performs better from now till the end of the year. If you compared Dyson and Frenchy just by what they do at the plate, in my opinion Frency will outperform Dyson by a statistical amount for clear judgement to be decided.

I personally think they both stink.

But besides that, they should be platooning....Frenchy can still hit lefties, but is dreadful against righties.

Frenchy may have a good arm, but he's actually a terrible RF with little to no range.

Dyson is the better answer on offense and on defense. Dyson is no brilliant fielder but he has so much speed he can get to most any ball. Frenchy has limited range, despite a pretty good arm.

Frenchy needs to be benched. He needs to get out of town. But that probably won't happen soon. They should have traded him after his one good year here.
