I feel so bad for Royals fans. Why in the hell haven't they brought Wil Myers up yet?
Because they are 10.5 games out and have no pitching to get back into the race. But there is an argument to be made for both sides.
"Compadres, it is imperative that we crush the freedom fighters before the start of the rainy season. And remember, a shiny new donkey for whomever brings me the head of Colonel Montoya."
Wait, isn't that more reason to call him up? He's already been down long enough for them to secure another year of service time. They are out of the race...so call up your top prospect who is probably top 3-4 in all of MLB right now to give the fans something to see these last few months
Instead, Dayton Moore has some weird fetish for Jeff Franceour
It's not that terrible. Above average defensive SS and his bat is really starting to come around this year as well.
He still can't take a walk, and his BABIP is almost surely going to come down. In seeing him hit, I highly doubt he sustains this kind of LD%. His last two full seasons have boasted .290 and .288 OBPs.
In years past I'd be all for the Cardinals picking up Jonathan Sanchez, I think Dave Duncan could at least make him a quality #4. But this year without Dave I'm hesitant to take those chances now, I still question whether or not Lilliquist even does anything on this team. To me Yadi is the pitching coach.
