dude.. you’re totally talking out of both sides of your mouth.. on one hand you say don't do things to win games here and there (DH in NL), but on the other you say to keep getz, the milkman and davies because they're producing and/or giving you a quality start… just “solder on”… why?? why not bring up the young talent and get them acclimated to the big leagues now without the pressure? is 10 starts in the minors better than 10 in the bigs for the pitchers? get them up now w/ the big league coaching staff. and, if there are position players, have them get the experience now too. i really don't want to hear you talking about the young guys early next year saying that "they were only up for a few weeks at the end of last year, so this is all pretty new to them and they're still getting accustomed to it.. we have to be patient" BS! I’m tired of being patient. What’s davies doing for you? When is guaranteed loss ever good? Hochevar sucks too but that’s besides the point (Ace is 5-8 w/ 5.46 ERA?? What a joke.. he’s never going to be what was advertised… at least not with the Royals). We’re both on the same side, but do think you are somewhat of a pollyanna on the moves by the front office.
