If Dayton is truly in "win-now" mode, other than publicly admitting his love affair w/ Frenchy, how can he justify putting him out there for 150 games?

I need to get over this, but I'm still so pissed 14 hours later.

I don't think there's any money left to be spent.

I'd be very surprised at this point if Frenchy isn't out there the majority of the season.

Which is quite depressing.

But hey, we got James Shields....yay!!!!

Look on the bright side. Anyone would be an improvement over Francoeur, who had as poor a season as any position player could have. Bring up someone, anyone, from AAA. Unfortunately, the Royals don't realize he is just this poor.

Moore on radio today: "Francoeur is our right-fielder going forward."

How can the royals claim that they're right about Myers and the rest of the league is wrong when they're so clearly wrong about Frenchy and the rest of the league is right?

Hadn't heard it put that way, but...um...yes. Exactly.

And furthermore, how can the royals claim they hold some giant secret about Myers when THEY'RE THE ONES THAT GOT FLEECED!

The Royals aren't claiming they know more about Myers, just that they are willing to take a chance with known commodities on the mound rather than waiting for an unknown commodity to become a star.

Well, yes, they are. They are saying that, all things considered, they do not believe six-plus years of last year's minor league baseball player of the year is worth more to the organization than two years of James Shields.

In this particular post, there is no judgment on the wisdom of that claim. But that's the claim that has effectively been made, and what Moore will be evaluated upon.

Right. Which is that person's job to determine. And it is on such determination that the staff should rightly be evaluated.

I hope the Royals do well next year. But no matter what other moves the Royals make the off season is going to be depressing.

I don't think we should drink bleach over this trade. But I think we can all agree that overpaying for Anibal Sanchez and dumping Hoch, all the while keeping Myers on as trade bait or future RF would have looked better.
