Latest Outing Has Kansas City Fans Calling For Jonathan Sanchez To Be Released

Jonathan Sanchez continues pitching poorly enough that many Kansas City Royals fans wonder when the time will come that he is released.

"I thought the ball came out of his hand better today."

Said Yost about Sanchez. As many of you know, I'm fine with qualitative analysis. But what in the hell does this mean? How does a ball come out of one's hand poorly? It seems to me you judge this sort of thing by balls and strikes. Sanchez threw a lot of balls, ergo the ball came out of his hand "badly"---whatever that means. Is Yost the King of Meaningless Coach-speak or what? - TL

The #5 slot in the rotation should rotate between Sanchy, Zito and Mota =P

Has Jonathan Sanchez Been the Same Pitcher?(FanGraphs)

more Sanchie stuff.....this time at FanGraphs.... last paragraph is this: --------------------------------------------------------------------- Yet I don’t think Sanchez’s decreased BABIP is sustainable. I’m inclined to think while it’s interesting to look at a pitcher’s batted ball results by pitch type in order to examine past performance, it is probably not a good predictor of future results. So while Sanchez produced different results in ERA with different pitch selections, his decreased BABIP and strand rate, but consistent rate statistics and constant xFIP, suggest that he has been, more or less, the same pitcher since his first full season as a starter. Barring a dramatic turnaround in his high walk rate, expect an increase in Sanchez’s ERA in 2011, possibly by a full run. -------------------------------------------------------------------- :(

Just In Case You Didn't Know...

I gave a few live updates last night on my twitter account of the Braves-Mets game at Turner Field. The starters were Javier Vazquez and Fernando Nieve, and it was a treat to see Vazquez in action....
