Closer Report, Week 3: Wade Doing Swimmingly

Imagine a world without Greg Holland.  Okay, got it... because it's here... sorta.  There would be no tulip or windmill jokes and Wade Davis would basically be the freaking mac.  I was interested to see what his numbers really were, since he basically became a full time reliever towards the end of the 2013 season, and up to this date thus far in the season. So over the 89 innings...

Grading The Kansas City Royals Offseason

The Kansas City Royals had a lot to be proud of as they walked off the field last season. Regardless of the fact they didn’t win the World Series, they were a team that was projected to be close to making the playoffs, and in fact did make it to the World Series. After a team has so much success, should they alter their lineup and bullpen to improve, or keep it relatively the...

Royals Right to Keep HDH Together

Throughout the season, people asked me a lot what the Royals were going to do about their bullpen situation because Greg Holland and Wade Davis were both going to be very expensive in the coming years. Sure enough, the Royals have already predictably exercised the $7 million 2015 option for Wade Davis and Greg Holland is projected to earn $9.3 million in his second year of arbitration...

FG on Fox: What’s Wrong With Wil Myers?

Two years ago, the Rays traded James Shields and Wade Davis to the Kansas City Royals for a package of talent centered around outfield prospect Wil Myers.

Time to See if the Royals Will Trade From a Strength

There was precedent for Wade Davis‘ amazing Royals transformation. You could, for example, point to Wade Davis, in 2012. Or you could point to any number of other guys who’ve found comfortable homes in the bullpen after struggling as starters.
