(George from Queens)
Buhner. (Ben Lindbergh)
2010-06-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)What the holy-heck is Alex Gordon going in AAA!? And I mean besides raking. Isn't he too young and have a far superior prospect pedigree to be treated as if he's 4A?
(WilliamWilde from Boston, MA)
We've been having a desultory discussion on our internal mailing list as to what the heck the Royals are thinking, though "thinking" may be setting the bar too high. It's not just Gordon, it's Ka'aihue (recall that Ken Phelps came up as a Royal and they refused him too), it's Chris Getz, it's Podsednik and Mitch Maier... There are so many areas where they might tinker around the edges and get a few more runs on the board. If it's obvious to us it's obvious to them, so the question is why don't they care?
