With Johnny Giavotella being optioned to AAA today, we are left with two contenders for second base.
The Royals would have us believe that the two will be "sharing second."
That's ridiculous. One of these bumsticks has to start on Opening Day. Who will it be? Getz is an above average defender, but he can't hit. Yuni is a giant Cuban turd, but Yost is in love with him.
There's only one way to settle this.
Ladies and Gentleman,
Welcome to the Main Event.
** WARNING: Homo-curious image ahead **
We've got a real slobberknocker on our hands. Every routine grounder matters. Every bunt, every sac fly, every HBP could be the one that puts someone over the top. And at the end, we'll be guaranteed a second baseman that no one likes.
I was going to make a joke suggesting the Royals contact Mark Grudzielanek, but it turns out they did! He was so pissed about finishing next-to-last in the Mark Madness poll that he told them to fuck off.
12 days till the opener and we already know we'll get no offense from the C, SS, 3B and 2B.
Go Royals. You're the Best!
