Evaluation of the Justin Maxwell Trade

At the trade deadline, the Kansas City Royals traded A+ pitcher Kyle Smith to the Houston Astros for MLB outfielder Justin Maxwell. Smith was a 4th round draft pick by the Royals back in 2011 and was pitching well in 19 starts in the Carolina League, with a 3.54 kwERA (which only takes into account strikeouts and walks, so things like batted balls and homers, which could be influenced by defense, luck, ball ...

The Process: Wilmington Rotation Reminiscent of 2010

A few weeks ago I took a look at a possible team the Lexington Legends could put together and oh boy was it loaded.  What does that mean for the team up a level from them?  Will they have a down squad?  Lets take a look at another possible roster. Lineup 1. Justin Trapp 2b - Took off in 2nd half of '12 can he build on that? 2. Orlando Calixte SS - Possibly gets a AA bump. 3. Jorge Bonifacio RF - Big power p ...

A Royals Opinion: Moving through August

Kyle Smith and Sam Selman I consistently lead off my posts with something negative. Mainly because the Royals are awful yet again. Yet when someone has starts like Kyle Smith and Sam Selman had last night, it is worthy to lead-off. Smith pitched 7 inning gave up 3 hits, 0 runs, 0 walks, and 12 strikeouts. In 40.2 innings at Kane County he has 54 strikeouts and only 12 walks. He is only 19 years old and show ...
