  • Trade: Royals trade Jonathan Sanchez to Rockies for Jeremy Guthrie

    Not sure how this benefits either team...

    The Rockies and Royals have agreed to a trade that will send left-hander Jonathan Sanchez to Colorado for right-hander Jeremy Guthrie, Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports reports (on Twitter). Both players have struggled in 2012 and are on track to hit free agency after the season.

    Well, it benefits the Royals by getting Sanchez off their team. Maybe they see something in Guthrie.

      I guess both are hoping the guy they get will benefit from a change in scenery.

        Wasn't Kansas City supposed to be a "change of scenery" for Sanchez?

          Well I've been to San Francisco, and I've been to Kansas City, and I can vouch that the scenery is different. I just heard the other day that the Royals had DFA'd Sanchez, and now they've washed their hands of him. Didn't this guy throw a no-hitter 2-3 years ago?

            I don't think Colorado is a good place for a pitcher who is wild and can't throw strikes

            his games are full of full counts, walks, wild pitches etc

            he will allow lots of runners on base and then arena baseball field will take over

            even duing his "successful" starts I could not stand to watch the games, so many pitches and walks and high pitch counts, truly torture to watch his games

              he actually had been pulled from the rotation in 2009 then someone was injured, Randy Johnson possibly, and he was inserted as a replacement and no hit the Padres the Friday before the ASG, the only runner was safe on an error in the 8th inning

              his hands are surprisingly very small

              at the time of the no hitter he was 2-8 with a 5.30 ERA
              in 69 IP he had allowed 72 H and 46 BB

                Yes, Sanchez threw a no-hitter, the first by a Giants pitcher in 33 years. He was one 8th inning error away from a perfect game.

                  Tel me about it! How many times did he have like 6 K's, 5 walks and over 100 pitches by the 5th inning?!

                    Sanchez is an extremely talented but inconsistent lefty with very high potential. I'm not sure what happened in KC this year, but the last time I saw him pitching his mechanics were more out of wack then I've ever seen any pitcher out of wack. I couldn't believe what I was seeing.
