Glazer: The Premature Death of Royals ‘Superstar’ To Be Eric Hosmer

The Royals are beginning to turn away from their "future super star" Eric Hosmer…

Yep, todays Kansas City Star held more proof of the team’s lack of confidence that their guy will ever be much more than maybe the next Alex Gordon. Meaning a solid player – nothing much more than good – not great. Holy Molly!

So the Royals press dogs have now started pushing for Mike Moustakas, the Moose. He was front page news today – the team’s best third baseman since George Brett. The guy leads the team in homers at seven and is batting .300. They even compare him to all the other good third baseman in the league for range.

They‘re desperate we’re desperate.

Clearly with Hosmer out of the All-Star Game, it’s THE MOOSE, who the Royals want to take his place.

Unless it’s a pitcher or Billy Butler (the second coming of Mike Sweeney) it will likely be Moustakas. That is, unless his average slips to .250 and he doesn’t hit any more homers in June (like Hosmer didn’t in May).

Hosmer’s stuck on five home runs.

The directionless Royals even started a rookie against the Yankees a couple days back at Yankee Stadium. Good move, he got crushed. That was an easy money bet with the Yankees just a 2 to 1 favorite over KC. But good luck getting takers outside of online or Las Vegas. So yeah, we lost.

So the Royals, with the third worst record in baseball, now have the dud of the year in Eric Hosmer.

Most baseball insiders and Royals fans thought he was a sure thing this season. Eric would hit over .300, have at least 28 home runs and drive in over 100, no problem. Instead he’s been hitting around .180 with few homers and RBI’s.

Is he a bust? Probably not a complete bust.

It looks like he will join Butler and Gordon as guys who are good to have on your team, but no big deal. And that’s painful.

Oh, for those of you who will tell me the Royals have done much better than when we lost one million games in a row to start the season. Really? We were 6 1/2 games out of first at that time and now we are 8 1/2 games out with the second worst record in the American League.

I hope Eric gets going again, but it doesn’t look too good right now.

    “Dude of the year?”
    “Holy Molly?”

    No, no, no, no and no.

    Attn KC Con Newbies…. We tolerate Glazonics. It actually enhances the read. Getting hung up on Glazer Grammar will inhibit your enjoyment of this rare art form.

    Craig, don’t sweep the big story of the weekend under the rug. The Legends is going BUST. You gotta have some skinny on that.

  8. Cliffy says:

    Wow, Glazer. This might be the most poorly written article you’ve ever authored. Congrats!

    Glazer is a trained monkey that Hearne keeps pushing out in front of the crowd for laughs. Sad, really. But I keep coming back from time to time to toss a quarter into his bucket.

  9. Super Dave says:

    Well nasty and not funny stuff from a nasty and not funny person. I mean what more can one expect.

  10. Lord Of Earl says:

    Your team is terrible. Glazer is correct. Your star is a bust, Hosmer, a def no go. The guy almost single handedly lost the game last night in ‘Baltimore. Struck out on a 3 ball, one strike count. You had men on second and third. Your star also threw the ball away on a pick off that should have gotten you guys out of an inning. He’b batting .190.

    Maybe it’s you gents who are the fools, not this guy.

  11. Guy Who Says What Others Think says:

    Just another in a long line…
    of Royals busts. Dwayne Hosey, Joe Vitiello, Eric Granger…I’ll even throw in Johnny Damon. They put WAY too much pressure on their young players to be “the man” Hosmer is just the latest case. Put Hosmer on a team with an All Star veteran or two around him, and I can promise you he wouldn’t be hitting below the Mendoza line. Run him across the state and put him in the batting order between Carlos Beltran, Matt Holliday, & David Freese. He’d be raking, and be the Cardinals next big time All Star. Instead, the poor bastard is stuck in Shitsville MO, playing for a bush league franchise, owned by a bush league owner, and run by his mentally retarded son.

    Its A Craig World
    Its Glazer’s world boys, you’re just livin in it.

    Really? News to me…lets see, new stadium most games and shows there sold out, T-Bones sell out…most stores seem to be fine. Sure like the rest of our city and nation it’s slower than usual, but that’s the economy. Stanford’s just finished our fifth year here…we like it…I am not aware of any major issues.

    179 million reasons

    The developer and/or landlord is getting sued by US BANK for $179,000,000.00. They haven’t made a payment since October, when I believe the financialpaper was restructured to help keep the Legends afloat, at least from a cash flow basis. Clearly all is not well in paradise, even if as the developer says, that the legal action being taken against them is procedural. If the Feds are up JP Morgan’s ass for a two hundred million dollar trading loss then I suspect that the fishy smell in KCK isn’t from the soap plant.

    Legends may find a way out of this….
    Legends is an outdoor mall that covers a lot of space. I go there pretty often and it never feels crazy busy to me. These big retailers need to be gunning on all cylinders every day to make it and they are not. Now one thing the area has going for it is the sheer diversity of the projects… soccer, restaurants, baseball, Cerner, theater… etc, etc. Glazer may be doing well, but they also have a very unique product with a very long standing brand. Shopping has changed folfs…. Even rich people are now buying clothes at Wal-Mart, Target, Kohl’s. I can assure you that the Wal-Mart across Parallel is not hurting at all. RED was kind of a shooting star…. they really have not been around that long… They grew hyper fast… It seems like they get sued a lot.

    Same developer. Same Legends Shopping Center in Reno, NV. Same result to the tune of a $141MM default.
