About the author

Paul York

Thanks to Greg and the rest of the Pinetarpress.com crew for welcoming and allowing me to contribute to their stellar site. I jumped at the opportunity to become a contributor. Baseball, and more specifically, Kansas City Royals baseball is a deep rooted passion for me, and I look forward to being able to write about various Royals topics. When reading my material, keep in mind that I’m just a fan. I’m no insider, and I’m no seam-head. I appreciate advanced statistics, but don’t necessarily buy into all of them. I’m still “old school” in that I think you can still get a good evaluation through watching a player and whatever is offered on the back of his baseball card. I played small time college baseball in Kansas, and coached at the high school level. That is the extent of my baseball experience, but more appropriately those are the eyes through which I watch the game of baseball. I’m a KCK resident—a Dotte, if you will. I’m married and have a son who is itching to begin tee work, soft-toss, and a long-toss program (he’s 10 months old at the time of this writing). I’m active on Twitter. Follow me at @pyork_10. Go Royals!

    It was a stroke of genius when Moore signed Frenchy and he has a career year. It’s complete buffoonery when Moore extends him 2 years.

    Moore HAS to be a fortune teller. He needs to hold the crystal ball with his roster. After watching Frenchy put up a career year he needs to know that he will undoubtedly regress. I buy the law of averages more than I buy a pressing player that tried to shoulder the burden of a young struggling team. If Jeff’s instructions read: Surround with talented players and watch grow then shame on Moore for being an idiot.

    Hopefully Yost will bat him 8th and give plenty of ABs to either Dyson or Lough against RHPs. This way, maybe we can get at least some positive WAR out of this position…

    The fact that Jeff Francoeur lost between 30-40 lbs. as he joined the Royals suggests that he might have already found one. Which lends to the fact that PED’s don’t necessarily result in improved play.

    Jeffy’s only hope is to find an untraceable PED.
