I love the pick, excellent job Royals brass. A Zack Greinke/Luke Hochevar rotation with the projected bats of Gordon and Butler (not to mention the hiring of Dayton Moore) gives me a great sense of pride in the organization.
I listened to Hochevar’s interview. His answers sounded as polished as his slider. That was until you got to the questions regarding his salary dispute with the Dodgers. Now, if all he wants is typical first round, first pick numbers, I’m sure something can be reached. But, with Scott Boras as his agent, I am leery that we might be burned like the Dodgers were. Twice.
