DateQuestionAnswer
2012-11-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)What's wrong with Mike Montgomery? Do you think he will ever be able to make it in the majors as a SP?
(Nils from Stamford)
Well, we're talking about the team of Kyle Davies and Luke Hochevar here. You don't necessarily have to to be a good pitcher to be a Royals pitcher for a long time. So I'll say that he makes it in the sense that he is a major-league starter for a while, but not necessarily a good one. For that, you'll have to wait for the Royals prospect list, which will be out soon.

Since that wasn't a very satisfying answer, I'm just going to pretend you asked about Mark Montgomery instead. In which case: Nothing! Nothing is wrong with Mark Montgomery. (I really like Mark Montgomery, mostly because he reminds me of David Robertson.) (Ben Lindbergh)
2011-05-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Philip Humber for real? He was a hot prospect for the Mets and ended up in Minnesota for Johan Santana. He never distinguished himself in the minors, but he's off to a great start with the White Sox. Can he sustain this level of performance?
(tlowell5 from Alaska)
He has looked better than expected (someone in the annual threw out a Kyle Davies comp), but I'm not sold that he'll continue to have a .210 BABIP. Once that moves up, the ERA probably will too. (R.J. Anderson)
2011-04-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)To borrow from Joe Morgan.. Kyle Davies has been consistently inconsistent throughout his career. When will the Royals decide to cut bait with him and could you see him latching on with another team?
(kcroyalsguy from KCMO)
Where have you gone, Joe Morgan? A blogosphere turns its lonely eyes to you. The Royals will bid Davies goodbye as soon as they have enough young pitching in the majors to avoid doing things like signing Jeff Suppan. That day could come as soon as next season, and I don't foresee a bright future for him after that. (Ben Lindbergh)
