This bullpen is going to lose 60+ games by itself.

This will be something we gave to get used to.

Although I wish it would work out, I think Kennedy's best impact on this team in 2019 will be as a middle reliever. I'm not sure his repertoire will play well in one inning, shut-down situations. Same with Boxberger. Power arms need to anchor the back of the pen. I'd even be cool if they kept Peralta as the closer for now. As much as he makes you bite your nails, he seems to wiggle out of situations.

Hopefully Ned doesn't go full Yost and hands late inning duties over to Zimmer. Would be an awesome story arc if he ended up being our next lights out closer.

One of the things that made the '14-'15 pens so dominant was the differential between the junk-baller starting pitchers and the hard throwing late inning relievers.

Kennedy in middle relief makes sense.

Now you're talking about attendance? I brought this up a few years ago and was damn near banned from the thread.

To make room for Homer Bailey on the 25-man roster, the Royals have DFAd right-hander Chris Ellis.

This homer bailey shit is going to turn out terribly. Also Kennedy as a closer is fucking dumb.

OK...why did you post this article about a minor-league hockey team?

Kennedys best position would to be DFA'd, so that we can bring up a guy from AAA who would put up equal or probably better production. Id rather he get paid to sit at home and not block guys while he's sucking shit.

Iíll be honest: Iím fine with seeing this team lose 10-20 extra games due to a crappy bullpen.

They have better young arms on the way in the near future (Zimmer, Staumont, Lovelady among them) that should add a lot of power back in the pen.

Theyíre trying to rehab some vets and build some trade value. If it doesnít work, and it costs you games, the other effect is raising your next draft pick slot.

Should the Royals offer Mondesi an Acuna-type contract? Mondesi is 2 years older so maybe 6 years for $90 mil with options on the end?
