Brian Goodwin thing still puzzling as hell. Him in RF and Whit at 2nd makes this team look so much better

No shit, the speed in that outfield with Gordo being the slowest but still very serviceable.

Probably is their best alignment. Id start Lopez hitting 9th. If he adjusts quickly and is doing a good job getting on base, I would slide him to 1, then slide everyone else back a slot.

Nah he's right, had they intended to keep Cain then they would have walked on Gordon the year before.

No he's not - that's just wrong. Any attempt at talks with Cain never went far. The sticker shock based upon what his representatives sought in a contract length/value was always a non-starter for this front office. Especially when considering how they valued him based on age/position/skill-set was always a question. There is absolutely no connection to the idea they chose Gordon over Cain. Cain was never an option at that point. This is hind-sight unsubstantiated speculation.

Now...would I rather have had Cain last year and this year over Gordon? Sure?...although Gordon's 2019 is looking great so far. But yeah...I'd love to have Cain, but that doesn't mean I can make up facts to beat up on the Royals front office - just because. IF Cain was ever an important priority/option it would have been a choice between signing Cain vs. Hosmer. Now..under that scenario, he would have a point. The Royals would have made the wrong decision, had the Padres not saved us from ourselves.

Dozier is 8th in average exit velocity. O'Hearn is in the top 25 or 30 in exit velocity and is hitting only .189 in balls in play, suggesting a lot of bad luck.
