An open message to the Royal's brain trust:
Free Zack Grienke.
Let the boy play ball. No wonder he sometimes wonders if it is still fun. When you were a kid there was no designated hitter and you wouldn't have enjoyed the game either if you hadn't been able to hit.
Turn him loose. Let the juices flow.
Heck, let him play shortstop the four days between starts. I'd be willing to bet he's still the best shortstop on the club.
