    Huge blow, to an already fragile rotation.

    It was tough to watch yesterday in Chicago. It was almost as if you knew the worst news was going to come out for him, especially when he didn’t make it out of the first inning.

    When it rains, it pours. So weird we were so
    injury-free last year with the new training staff, and so injury prone this year. Makes you kind of wonder about firing McClure and hiring Eiland. Boston had no qualms about hiring McClure.

    What a bummer. Wait until next year. The royals need to do something with the pitching staff NOW not later. Spend some money already.

    I am going to be in the minority here, but it’s not as if Duffy was tearing up the league or a “stopper” or even consistent… The biggest hit to losing Duffy for 2012 is the fact the Royals do not have depth at MLB ready starting pitching.

    Obviously, missing the majority of a season hurts Duffy’s development, but as far as the product on the field is concerned right now… Not much has changed.
