Top 10 Royals Trade Assets

It’s becoming abundantly clear that the Royals are involved in all sorts of discussions on the trade front this offseason, which makes sense. The free agent market is lacking in marquee players and the team claims they’re lacking in money. Put it together and trades are the name of the game. Whether it’s to help the team win in 2017, after 2018, or maybe both, the Royals have...

Royals will benefit from full offseason routine

Aside from possible roster improvements the Royals may make here at the Winter Meetings, Royals manager Ned Yost believes recovery time itself could help his team the most this offseason. Fatigue from two World Series runs in 2014 and '15 may have hurt the Royals as much as anything last season.

The Process Derailed

It’s been awhile, but it’s time to check the Dayton Moore quote book. Today, we’re going to start with one that should probably be inscribed on his plaque in the Royals Hall of Fame someday. “Let’s just trust the process. If other people don’t want to trust the process, that’s fine. If other people want to abandon the process, then abandon it. I’m not abandoning the...

A Plan for the Royals

  The Kansas City Royals — the once proud franchise which shocked the sporting world by winning the 2015 World Series in Cinderella-story fashion — are at a crossroads. Dayton Moore and the gang can buckle up for one more run at a championship with the current roster, or begin the long and painful process of rebuilding.

The Royals’ Last Ride

Not long ago, I was thinking about the teams that might elect to rebuild next. The only really obvious candidate was and is the White Sox, who could begin the process at any moment. After them, I thought about the Diamondbacks, who might be a half-year away. The Orioles might be approaching their own cliff. The Tigers have already expressed a desire to get younger and cheaper. And...

It can’t be the only possible solution. The Royals...
