Sorry Chef, but, you're wrong on this one.  To be a utility OF and 1B (Gload doesn't play any other IF position) you HAVE to have power.  You have to be able to come off the bench and possibly change the game with a dinger.  Gload can't do it.  There is no need for defensive replacements in the American League.

gload is a better hitter. bloomie can play more positions. i dont think bloomquist can do the OF that well though.

teahen is a better hitter and athlete in all capacities, no doubt. but mark teahen is also deserving of a starting nod, and has actually been about as good as alex gordon the past two years. i am hoping mark can win the 2B job.

yeah, sure. neither of these fuckups are major leaguers.
Gload sucks.

Berroa's spring training batting averages:
2002: .297
2003: .308
2004: .323
2005: .441
2006: .451
2007: .263
2008: .250
2009: .500

Sorry, Berroa had two mediocre springs to go with six excellent ones.  He does not hit well *every* spring.  I stand corrected.

goddamn you have a lot of time on your hands. and you were wrong. berroa does not hit well every spring. i bet you could look up those other springs ( since we both know you have time to do it ) and see how many trash hits he has against AA pitchers.

and again, you were wrong. berroa does not rip the cover off the ball every spring. 08 and 07, he did not. so, therefore, you were wrong. just repeating it so you and your lapdog ndteve can read it.

I never said anything about the quality of pitching he faced in spring training, all I said is that he hits well.  Clearly he does it because the level of competition in spring training is not very good -- this is exactly the argument that you are presented with every time you declare that some has been/never was nobody like Damon Hollins "won" a job with his strong spring.  Do you think that he's facing any better competition in Florida with the Yankees than he did in Arizona with the Royals?  And yet here you are, asserting that his spring training performance has made him a "serious contender" for the Yankees third base job.  Because if there's any team that lacks the resources to go out and get someone better than Angel Berroa, it's clearly going to be the Yankees (or maybe they don't want to since he's "earning the job" with his outstanding performance).

hey, i am just reading comments made by yankee fans asserting berroa is challenging for the job. he may be, they have no one in their system. you want me to link you to the story where people are saying he may get it?? ( same one where they say yanks are interested in teahen )

I pretty much don't ever trust fan speculation on personnel decisions (and that includes people here talking about the Royals, and that includes my own speculation).  I hope they're right, though.  I hope Berroa really is going to win the job.  It'll be nice for the Royals to only have to face an eight-man lineup when the Yankees come to town.

I think Berroa is being considered, but everything I have read says Cody Ransom will get the job unless the Yankees acquire someone.

Heard an interesting stat on the radio yesterday:  Every player in the Royals' projected (or hypothicated) opening day lineup will have - at some point in their career - hit double-digit homeruns in a season.

I doubt this is really that spectactular, but certainly unfamiliar territory for the Royals.

a lot of people in the yanks system are not that excited about a thirty something with 183 unsuccessful MLB at bats starting at third base.

I guess this assumes Teahen is the Opening Day 2B, because neither Bloomquist or Callaspo have done this. I don't think Teahen will be the Opening Day 2B.

canada getting knocked out of the wbc in the first 5 days helps teahens chances, now he gets 4 weeks to win the job.

Wow I didn't know he made that much.  How is that possible?  I'd keep Teahan over Gload obviously, but one of em has to go.

The Jimmy Gobble Era is over. Royals release the left-hander.

i wonder after he clears waivers, which, he probably will, does he stay on with the royals at AAA.

It's best just to let him go.  My guess is that Horatio Ramirez hasn't done enough to make the starting rotation and will be the lefty out of the bullpen.  Look for the Royals to make a trade for a lefty starter, perhaps to the Astros who just lost Aaron Boone for the season and have a 36 year old with no power at 3B.  If they can trade Teahan or Buck for a decent lefty fifth starter then they should do it.

They placed him on release waivers, meaning they don't want him. Too bad, he was pretty effective against lefties and Trey really mishandled him badly last year.
