Payroll is @ 36 million, it needs to be frickin at least 50.......Baird has made good deals with what has been given him. Bautista for Grimseley, Jose Bautista for Justin Huber, Beltran for Buck, Teahan and Wood......the thing is........these guys werent all ready for the bigs and they are having to develop on the fly.

Christ sakes, are back end of the bullpen is Burgos, Sisco, Nunez, all under 22. Thats a minor league team.


I agree Glass needs to go, but Pena will end up managing somewhere else. You can't tell me that 2003 team willed itself to 83-79. If you gave Joe Torre or Tony LaRussa these players they'd maybe have 9 wins instead of 8 right now.

I have to disagree with that. The Royals are 3-9 in one run games. A good manager might have them 9-3 in one run games (giving them a record of 14-19). Granted that's not great, but much more respectable.

Who's gonna pitch them out of a jam? Ambiriox Burgos?
Who's gonna come off the bench to get that crucial hit? Terrance Long?

The horses just arent there. Things are gonna get more depressing when Sweeney leaves.

I agree that the Royals are short on talent, but that is not what I said. Even though the game is played on the field, some of the managerial moves were not consistent.
