Rod Barajas: RC's Enemy Number One...


Stop pitching to this man.

RC watched tonight's game, which was spoiled by two more homers off the bat of Rod Barajas, and there's not a whole lot to say. Zack Greinke pitched well, and the combo of Andy Sisco and Ambiorix Burgos didn't. The Royals staged a miracle comeback in the bottom of the ninth inning, capped by Mark Teahen's fourth hit of the game -- a three-run double -- but Barajas came up in the tenth inning and promptly dispatched a low Mike MacDougal slider into the left field seats.

  • In the minors, a few interesting things happened tonight. Billy Butler hit his 30th homer of the season for Wichita (five for the Wranglers, 25 for the Mavericks). High Desert's Adam Keim also drilled his 30th long ball in the Mavericks' game tonight, but at this point the Mavs have some catching up to do if they want to clinch their division title tonight. At press time, they trail 12-8.

    Luis Cota finished his season with a mediocre performance. Cota got a no-decision in Burlington's loss today, with a line of: 5.0 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 5 K. He finished the season with a 4.01 ERA in 148 IP. He surrendered 143 hits while walking 63 and striking out 137. It's definitely a season he can build on.


  • RC is going to make some rounds through the Eastern and Carolina Leagues this weekend. We'll be sure to post a report if anything interesting happens, but we anticipate this weekend's Royals posting may be a little light.

    I usually don't condone sticking a guy with a fastball just because your team's pitchers can't get him out (or keep him in the yard, in this case), but I hope Barajas gets one square in the back tonight.

    I think the Royals should try and trade for Barajas. With 82 games at the K a year he'd challenge Bonds' single season HR record, of course maybe he won;t be as good when he isn't facing Royals' oitchers, but still..

    I don't think Barajas has a spitting chance at beating anythign that Bonds has ever done.

    I just said that because you disrespected me before by calling me a idiot.

    You called me a idiot for having a opinion, and you shouldn't discriminate people because of their opinions.

    No royalsbeliever, I don't discriminate against people for having opinions. I discriminate against people for being idiots. There's a difference.

    Of course, it's a moot point, because I fail to see how I discriminated against you at all. I don't even delete your silly posts. But if you can't handle criticism of your opinions, then maybe you should post them somewhere else...like your own blog, for instance.

    I was really beginning to think you might know something about baseball after reading your blog for a month or so. Now I'm kind of undecided.

    I think Royals Corner is almost as good as the "official" website of the royals. Just thought you'd like to know that there are plenty of us who enjoy Royals Corner.

    ALMOST as good? I think RC is miles ahead of kcroyals.com and that bumbling nincompoop Dick Kaegel.
