There's ZERO reason for Maier to be on the team. None.

I wouldn't have a huge problem with keeping Quintero over Pena...personally I'm not a fan of either player.

But if he keeps Maier over Dyson....or keeps Myers down in the minors just to keep Maier on the big league team....well then I have a serious issue with it.

So that means Dyson goes down, cut either Pena or Q and what other move? Cut Mitch?




My preference would be get rid of Quintero when Perez comes back, and cut Meier when either Cain or Myers comes up.




That's my preference as well, so my guess is that DM has a different opinion. I just have little faith in him at this point.




Who is the GM that brought you Hosmer, Moose, Myers, Perez, Escobar, Duffy?
You may have your preferences, but unfortunately DM has a small market business model that he has to follow.

Yeah, that's great and all, but I could give a [censored] about minor league championships. I realize that's where the building needed to begin, but you can't help but question some of the decision making involving the major league team. No GM is perfect, but the Royals have a knack for making all the wrong decisions.

Myers is sitting on a .330.409/.697(!) line in 300 plate appearances this year. There is nothing to be gained from allowing him to terrorize the minors any longer. Time to go.

Scuttlebutt is Myers is on the trading block.....and no I am not even kidding.

Glut in the OF...Dayton in love with Francouer, Cain almost ready to come back, Seriously I have heard this discussed. I understand keeping WM on the bench until after July 10 for contractual reasons but if he is traded unless it is flat out blockbuster I am done with the Royals as long as DM is at the helm.

What does July 10 have to do with anything? We're safely past the Super Two line.

Good question. Heard talking heads referring to July 10 and I could not figure it out either.

A case can be made to trade off Wil Meyers that would make perfect sense. I would prefer it not to happen, but it could.
There is a glut in the outfield, only because Myers is advancing faster than what the timetable was determined to be. Myers wasn't expected to be forcing the Royals hand at this point, this was supposed to happen until next year, which is why Frenchy is signed through next season.
Myers was playing third base again in Omaha, maybe he will be playing a variety of positions once he is called up.

Went and looked this up. We are nowhere near safely past the Super Two line. The new CBA has that line moving all over the place and it is not the same every year anymore. I know now why I kept hearing July 10 and it is because that is where most teams think it safely falls without about two week of padding in there.

Throw in the Paulino injury. Most definitely. That's who they are this year though. They're a .500 team at best. Will go through a 9 game stretch where they'll win 7 then turn around and lose 4 or 5 in a row.

Been a tough year to suffer through. How many expected contributors have missed significant time?

Soria
Duffy
Paulino
Cain
Perez
Escobar
Holland

Hosmer's been a wreck. Sanchez an unmitigated disaster. Gordon seems like he aged three years during the offseason. Francoeur is blocking Myers. Outside of Odorizzi, no pitching has made significant progress.

Yuni.

For a franchise that really could have used a two- or three-year period where things mostly go right...they haven't.

I'm just glad the Royals are keeping Odorizzi down in Omaha...keeping his pitch counts down, giving him that TLC that has made this organization a model for player health.
