Well, since the season is a bust it's time to look at 2005. Here's what I think the Royals should do now to prepare:
So you're lineup would look as follows:
And then Gettis would be your 4th outfielder. While this lineup won't score that many runs and its not any better defensively it can't really be worse than what we've seen since the Beltran deal.
On another subject I scored last night's 3-2 loss to the Orioles. I was quite impressed with Zack Grienke as it was the first time I'd seen him live. He really changed speeds well, located his fastball, and in one at bat threw a 93mph fastball and a 63mph curveball. He's the real deal. Not sure if he simply got tired but his location was bad in the 7th when Palmeiro took him deep and then he gave up back to back doubles.
