    Moustakas was 23 in 2012 and batted .242 with 20 hr 73 RBIs
    So, yeah, the future looked bright(er). In 2013 he batted .233 with 12 HR and 43 RBIs and struck out a metric fuck ton while taking hardly any walks. I don't want to even go back and look at his on - base or slugging % from last year

    Still only 25, baseball is a weird sport. Some prospects just can't make it until they are older and one day the lightbulb just turns on

    Wow, he has just gotten a lot worse from year to year. Not a good sign. Rest of the year in Triple-A might be needed.

    Striking out a lot more than expected, but Aoki's been pretty solid otherwise. It's nice having a legit leadoff guy in KC'S lineup. I expected him to be a little faster too, but his defense has been fine.

    Yeah his steals dipped a bit last year from the year before so that doesnt surprise me but otherwise sounds like the same guy. Definitely a legit leadoff hitter, he makes good contact and is a tough out.

    Wasnt a big fan of the trade when it happened but Smith has been huge for the Brewers, hes been a great 8th inning guy. 0.52 ERA and more strikeouts than innings. His slider is absolutely filthy, especially against lefties. Glad its working out for both parties involved, like the Greinke trade a few years ago.

    I forgot all about Smith! KC'S bullpen has been deep the last couple years (before our 8th inning guy Luke Hochevar got Tommy John's), so Smith was expendable at the time. Seems like the trade worked out for both teams.

    Hooooly shiiiit

    They've got a press conference set up about it. That does not sound good at all

    edit: actually it sounds like it's somthing stomach-related. Apparently he was puking before his last start

    Indeed, not good.


    I have a feeling this one is leading to another young pitcher having TJ surgery.

    Definitely sounds like Tommy John is in the cards for Fernandez. Holy shit.
