LOL, for sure.

Seriously, he better be sent to the bullpen for the rest of this season. Is Duffy or Paulino close to being able to come back and possibly take Davis spot in the rotation?

Maybe Paulino.

And at this point, I'm not sure how much of an upgrade Duffy is over Davis anyway. Especially after this much time off.

Fair point about the time off.

But I guess I just don't see what the Royals have to lose by throwing Duffy or Paulino (as long as they are completely recovered) in place of Davis right now. Davis is absolutely awful.

He's been pitching well, but I think he's a year away?

yeah I don't think hes ready. But its possible if we stay somewhat close in the standings.

They need to do something..... And I don't think the answer is on the big league roster.

Ventura is still over a year away. Duffy has apparently been really strong in AAA. I have always liked Duffy and like his stuff when he is on. Davis is a Hochevar 2.0. Has signs of dominance, like his great game at Atlanta, then goes out and flounders.

Those 2 HR's hit last night would be outs in KC. I hate Yankee Stadium and the short distances to the walls. But 80% of hitters swing and miss on Cano's HR. That's why he is good damn good.

I highly doubt we can catch the Tigers. It's looking mighty tough for those 2 wildcard spots too. But Moore went for win now...so this might be the season to do it.

Davis sucked it up, no doubt. But I also think Ned left him in too long. I believe he was at or was close to the 100 pitch mark well before giving up the bomb to Overbay. And clearly he had already been struggling. But at the same time, hes a starter, and you need to be able to count on your starter to get through at least 6 ininings. Which he has only done 7 times this year. Not good.

I think you move Davis to the 8th inning role and move Will Smith in the rotation. Right now.

The wild card will be next to impossible for the Royals. Catching the Tigers is our only chance.

6 games back from Detroit, 7 from Wildcard. I think Detroit will only get better from here. Maybe the AL East will beat each other around some.

Royals are "all in" and are in win now mode with their best team in 20 years. Currently 2 games under .500.

Yankees have their worst team in 20 years, yet are still 7 game over .500.

Kansas City is so pathetic. Hilarious!
