He still looks like he is in awe of the majors. Like he doesn't think he deserves to be here yet.

I am no Wilkins fan, but I agree. He has had some pitches to hit, but I don't think it is a lack of talent that has him off. Eduardo Perez was tslking the other night , and he said the easiest time to hit as a major leaguer is your first couple of weeks because they don't have scouting reports on you. But I think you can throw that out the window for some who are understandably overwhelmed.

 

 

 

Semien, Sanchez and Wilkins have combined for 1 walk in 94 AB since being recalled.

Oak 4-3 bullpen woes again.

A good defensive LF makes that catch, and a decent defensive 1b makes the play on the bunt, not that they would have bunted had a runner not been in 3B.

Wow.. fans really giving it to Viciedo.

 

Good. They should be doing a lot of booing the rest of this season.

That's the Dunn we know. He should have swung at that. It was hittable.

What is with these hitters who will not walk? The Royals are not going to win the division, in large part because they never draw walks and get those free runs. Weird.

Abreu looks gassed. He's been great, but I don't think anyone would have guessed that Conor would have more homers after the ASB than him

Avi has a lot of bad tendencies at the plate. I said this last week, but I wouldn't be upset if they use him as a major piece in a trade.

Glad you're coming around, but it seems like another project they'll be too stubborn to cut their losses on.

Avisail sure doesn't look like much for all the hype he is given.

 

At one time I thought this team could be good next year... wow do I not see that anymore.

 

 

Robin is gone also - there is no way with this horrible finish that they can keep him again for next year.

He obviously has the tools and youth is on his side, but so far he seems like a 5 tool player that isn't close to utilizing any of those tools. At the plate, he's losing his balance on off speed pitches. On fastballs inside, he isn't close to getting his hands in. He did the same last year, and it's why he's a ground out machine to the left side.

Yeah, he's just a cocktease

That last at bat was perplexing. He really had no chance against that junk thrown his way. I still love the guy, though.

Not shocking. The call ups are gonna take time to adjust. Then, you have Abreu and Eaton slowing down a bit. Viciedo has been the biggest power source during that time.

I can't help but keep thinking about Hawk saying this could not happen with this year's team. It's a cliche, but a cliched person might say "this team has quit." It definitely has no magic anymore. That 9-25 mark is scary bad.

His whole swing needs to be fixed, but I doubt that happens. He has too much power to have the approach of a slap hitter.
