Poor Alex Gordon
When Alex Gordon first came up I was all about him. I had read so many good things about him, and some people even said he could be the next coming of George Brett (who was one of my other childhood idols... til I grew up and learned he's a nasty drunk).
After Sunday's game Alex Gordon was optioned to AAA-Omaha as a result of batting .194 and making 4 errors in 12 games. This was disappointing to me to find out because I had high hopes for him, probably not as high as the Royals but I like following young guys and especially guys that play third. Just a hard position to field, not that any major league position is easy, but you get the point.
Anyone else out there start collecting Alex Gordon when he came up? He is one of the guys that I pick up singles of at shows or when I find them, but I don't go out of my way to collect him. I have his Bowman FY card graded here, along with a bunch of extras... oh well.
