Big 4 game series. Probable starters:

Guthrie - Hughes
Shields - Sabathia
Davis - Nova
Santana - Pettitte

Lines up alright for us I think. Except Davis of course....

I dont like Santana pitching at Yankee Stadium especially considering that he still remains above the league average in HR/9 even though he's pitching half his games in the spacious K. Also, Guthrie has been beyond lucky during his entire stint with the Royals. His BABIP is .015 below his career average yet his line drive rate is slighty above average all while stranding 7% more base runners and striking out 1 less /9 than his career totals. I'm not exactly sure how he's doing it but I guess lets just hope it continues.

To be fair, Santana only gave up 2 HRs in 6 starts in the month of June. He had a rough May in that category, he gave up 9 in 5 starts.

Cant say that I disagree with you on Guthrie. But him going against Hughes doesn't scare me much.

Bottom 9, Up 4, Hoch puts 2 on and Holland puts another on. Then strikes out the side.

Holland was an absolute All-Star snub.

I was glad to see Ned pull Houch immediately, no messing around.

I think that was the nastiest I've seen Holland all year. Hitting 97-99 regularly, devestating split and slider.

This is the Holland the Royals have wanted all year. He's not trying to be so precise. He's rearing back and throwing with fire and that's when his pitches really starting dancing and moving like crazy. When his splitter and slider is on, he is really tough to get a hit off of. Especially when his fastball is reaching 99.

I forget who it was that made the last out, but he wasn't even swing at Hollands pitches, he was just trying to foul them off because he really didn't have a shot. It was like a little kid up there.
Holland hitting 99 with that movement isn't fair.

I don't think many outside of Royals country realize how good he has been this year.

A guy like Holland could be a big trade target at the deadline. It would be interesting to know what his value would be. Personally I'd trade a closer for a good bat anyday of the week. But again...not sure what exactly we could get for him.

I don't know.. I like Utley's .340 OBP and his 11 HR's but is he worth giving up a good prosect or 2 because that's what the Phillies are going to ask for.

Sidenote... How the Yankees are at 48 or whatever wins blows my mind. Considering they haven't been full strength all year, I don't know how they've won so many games.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

Off the top of my head I can think of six teams better at the Yanks at developing players

Nationals
Giants
Reds
Braves
Cards
Rays

If you are pretending the Yanks are where they are because you can name four or five homegrown players in the last 10-12 years you are fooling yourself.

Ranking Teams with Homegrown Players.
