If they can win tonight and then take 2/3 from Chicago going into the break they've pulled something off. Sustained success coming off of their first real bout of adversity with Yost at the helm.

They've gotta win the ChiSox series to keep up some momentum.

This could be its own thread, but I'm going to keep it here. How do you all see the trade deadline going?

I'm hoping we accomplish the following:

*Deal Jose G., eat the dough...call up KK and give him every possible at bat at DH.

*Flip Farnsworth and some salary...I'd be happy to get a guy that projects as a 4/5 starter. Credit to Farnsworth as he is throwing great. In the short term we fill the void by sending one of LaRue/Chen to the pen. Probably LaRue.

*Only trade DeJesus for the kings ransom it should take to get him. If we trade him throw Gordon in left for the remainder of the season and see what you have.

I haven't scanned the board, so apologies in advance if this discussion is already going.

All of those ideas are probably best for us. I heard the Red Sox had interest in Dejesus but that backup outfielder for them just hit two homeruns last night and will be given more time out there. I haven't scanned the Red Sox prospect list so I don't know what we'd get back anyway.

Red Sox are pretty flush. But Epstein's too smart. I'd rather go after an easier mark...the Giants' Brian Sabean maybe?

I just hope that if and win the Royals deal some guys they get a decent catcher prospect back. Does anyone know who is the royals top catcher prospect in the minors or do they really have one?

Wil Myers is basically our top catching prospect... http://royalrevival.blogspot.com/2010/03/top-prospects-4-wil-myers.html

Wil Myers is a legit prospect. 1st round talent that slid due to signability concerns.

Fish may know more about his recent comings and goings...He is currently in High A.

Myers is a very, very good prospect. In just over 400 professional plate appearances, he's sitting on a pretty nifty .316/.415/.542 line...awesome for a guy at 18 and 19. Many close watchers, however, doubt he'll stay at catcher. That's the bad news. The good news is he might hit well enough to play anywhere.

Brayan Pena showed signs of a solid hitter last year when we called him up, however this year he's been pretty bad. Myers is probably our best choice if Pena doesn't work out

I realize we are still 8 games below .500 right now, but gosh it feels good to see a couple breaks go right and for this team to be winning games I have grown up accustomed to them losing. Boy it'd be nice to have a reason to go to a KU football game and have them update the crowd in between each quarter on the score of the Royal's game. Hmmm wishful thinking I suppose..

I would love an occasional "Offical Royals Gameday Thread".. even more wishful thinking

Oh we are in it alright. In the shitter again. Hopefully soon some of this talent gets here, produces, and makes the last twenty five years nothing but a painful memory rather than a yearly reality.
