Wish the Royals would turn some of their bullpen arms to starters. Surely out of Soria, Holland and Montgomery they could find two starters to go with Hoch, Paulino and Duffy.




Rany said the Soria to rotation rumors died years ago.

True. And I'm not advocating James Shields. I'm more advocating that we make a move. And if we do, we'll have to part w/ a couple of pieces we like. But getting a #1 in return is worth it, imo.

I like what we got back on Zack, but do you think Milwaukee regrets it? hell no.

Milwaukee didn't give up a devastating young hitter already producing in the majors and a top-shelf offensive prospect.

If we're going to trade a major leaguer (coupled with a prospect) for a pitcher, it needs to be an outfielder. I'm of the belief that Lorenzo Cain will be pretty good, so we ought to trade an outfielder. Not Billy. He's a good DH.

Well then it should be simple, find a team that's as willing to give up a #1 as we were.

It's funny b/c die-hard fans are die-hard fans. I've met no less than 50 potential Royals GM's.

I honestly think it might be a good idea this off-season to trade Cabrera, whose value more than likely will never be higher.

He's never hit the ball this well in his big league career, and I don't think it would be a terrible idea to think about moving him.

And I loved the post about Lackey....please please please never say John Lackey's name again. He's one of the worst starting pitchers in baseball, and has been declining now for years.

I heard some names that were intriguing....Bilingsley and Cain could be interesting options.

The key question however is are the Royals willing to trade some prospects for a front-line starter...I'm not sure if they are.

Shields has an ERA of this year of 2.82 in 33 starts. If he were obtained and pitched an under-3 era, he would win 20 games for the Royals This year he has put up career numbers. Hard to tell whether he is capable of having another great year.

I think my thing is that if we want to deal Myers and another big time prospect or even a guy like Billy Butler, I would like more in return than James Shields.

That's the kind of deal I'd offer for a Cain.

I think very highly of Cain, and hope the Royals make a serious push for him this off-season.

The Giants are so bad offensively that you wonder if they'd give Butler a look at first. There are no pitchers I understand to be available that would be worth dealing Myers and Butler.

then, imo, to land a splashy SP, we'll need someone to bite on prospect + melky.
