Dayton Moore just loves the fact that Jose Guillen slammed his teammates

3 Comments

On Wednesday, Jose Guillen said that the Royals were, fundamentally speaking, “one of the worst teams in all of
baseball.”  He also said that “sometimes you want to just punch them [meaning his teammates], but you can’t do that
because they’re your teammates. Respect for the game has been
lost. That pisses me off.”

You’d think that airing that kind of stuff in public would earn Guillen a trip to the doghouse, but apparently not. Dayton Moore loves it:

“I read it, and I took it as a positive. I know Jose’s
spoken this way in the past, but I know for a fact that he’s over that
because we’ve talked about it. I do know from the conversations we’ve
had that he’s happy about being here.”

I guess it’s hard enough to trade Jose Guillen — which is what the Royals are trying to do — without having internal strife, so I can see why Moore would want to minimize the fuss. But really, Moore is taking those comments as a positive?

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager will be on the team’s World Series roster.

Seager, 23, played in the NLDS but was left off the NLCS roster due to a lower back injury suffered in Game 3 against the Diamondbacks. He had three hits, including a triple, in 15 plate appearances in that series. During the regular season, Seager hit .295/.375/.479 with 22 home runs, 77 RBI, and 85 runs scored across 613 PA.

Charlie Culberson and Chris Taylor handled shortstop while Seager was absent. Both players were among the Dodgers’ best performers in the NLCS. With Seager back in the fold, Taylor will play mostly center field and Culberson will return to his bench role.
