It's a good thing the Royals don't have much pitching.

If they want to play Gamel in CF because they don't trust Amed out there, fine I will concede that point to some degree. However if it is a Gamel/Luplow platoon going forward, bring up Daniel Johnson please..

But the real beef for me at this point is, he should not be leading off EVER. If he plays he should be batting in the bottom 3rd of the order.
I completely agree with you on every point, but I was limiting myself to the options on the current roster. No one was more adamant that DJ should be on this ballclub than I was. But that's water under the bridge. It's clear he is going to be kept in the minors to gain another year of control, no complaining from me is going to change that. So we have what we have for now.

The real problem is Hernandez's resistance to batting leadoff, and our willingness to indulge him in that, or consider an alternative.

Dr. WhoAzcue, how would you assess Franmil Reyes' mental state at the moment? He seems awfully frustrated, but I'm not a mental health professional like yourself, so I don't want to make a diagnosis.
I'm sorry, but my practice is limited to assessments of the mentally fragile peanut gallery, not accomplished professionals like Franmil Reyes.

There is a domino effect going on with the lineup.

First, the first base competition that limited Naylor to RF. Second, the SS competition that made moving Amed to center so late that Tito won't put him there yet.

Had those not happened, Naylor would be at first, Amed in center, and a Johnson/Luplow platoon in right...and no Gamel.

How dumb is it to walk Gamel on four pitches to lead off an inning?
