I'd say he'd probably be a guy that would be used in a classic KW move, one to bring in a KC bullpen arm. This is just my guess, I don't evaluate the prospects as I don't watch them and I'm not a scout.

Well, it's nice to know that if this season goes further south, Flowers could be a player who'd be fun to watch as he seems to have fixed whatever was wrong with his swing.

He is still striking out plenty, but that's his modus operandi. Hopefully he can trim the K-rate a bit while continuing the good plate discipline.

He strikes me as Adam Dunn-lite. A lot of strikeouts, but a high OBP and a lot of power.

Flowers seems to have had his fair share of off days this year

Anybody know what happened to Brandon Hynick, the guy we got from Colorado in the Contreras deal? Is he hurt or something?

Tyler with HR # 8 tonight. He's found his power stroke it seems.

Viciedo hit his 7th of the year, as well.

Another solid outing for Hudson.

6 IP 3 H 0 R 6 K 1 BB

He threw 88 pitches through those 6 innings.

Flowers has 18 K's in the last 11 games. With 98 AB's through the season he's at a 39% K-Rate, which is rather disheartening. The power showing has been encouraging and he's sitting with a .931 OPS, but he needs to cut the K's a bit and hopefully up the BB rate at the same time.

Viciedo hit HR #9 in his first AB tonight. Now if only he would start talking some walks here and there.

From what I've seen of Viciedo in ST, pitchers should just throw him breaking balls out of the zone. He has some of the worst discipline I've ever seen. He reminds me of myself.

EDIT: I was surprised when I looked at his stats to see his was hitting a respectable .288. However 4 walks to 32 strikeouts clearly jumps out at you.
