Well that's exactly it. The Royals would have been in equal or better shape this year just plugging Myers in for Francoeur from Game 1.

Myers hit his second homer. He has 2 in his first week. How many does Hosmer have in half a season? I think moose has 4 in half a season. Oh by the way he is hitting 294 so far. But, but the royals say it takes about 4 years for a prospect to actually be any good.

"Myers, who's hitting .294 with two home runs, a double and seven RBIs after eight games"

Hosmer has 3 homers in 265 at bats.

Moose has 13 RBI in 213 at bats.

Rough. But Shields has been better than advertised. Top 20 in ERA and strikeouts in MLB. Just not the wins.

Yes Myers could be in RF for the Royals, but we'd probably have Chen lobbing from the mound in the rotation.
I'd love to have Myers, but the team put itself in a position to get pitching, and pitching costs.

Ding ding ding. We would have Santana, Hochevar, Chen, Will Smith and Mendozar as the rotation. Which would be completely awful. Give me the rotation currently as is and go after someone like a Nate Schierholtz for RF.

Guthrie? Not to mention the fact that the trade is an explicit acknowledgement that there was money to spend, so...Anibal Sanchez?

Even without a Sanchez move, it is looking like the trade, even this year alone, missed.

I'm not sure missed is the right word.

Shields has been exactly what the Royals needed (his record withstanding).

But having said that, I'd sure as hell would rather have Myers than Shields/Davis, but that's been well documented.

CnB, I felt the same way half a year ago. I just wasn't on this board voicing my displeasure like you guys apparently were.

Now that Wil has been called up and off to a flying start with TB — the wounds are reopened and salt is being poured into them

Like I said in the other thread, it's unwise to judge Myers on this first handful of games. Hosmer made all of us believers in his rookie year. There's no doubt in my mind that Myers will struggle at some point, but how much and for how long remains to be seen. Maybe Myers' first three years end up looking like Hosmer's. I kind of doubt it, but we don't know that yet.

Get me out of this Royals depression.


The Royals can always deal the prospects of Christian Colon and Bubba Starling as they still have trade value for the F/A that will be traded this year with expiring contracts.

F/A
Chase Headley, Brian McCann, Michael Morse,Shin-Soo Choo,
Hunter Pence, Nelson Cruz, David Murphy, Chase Utley, Jacoby Ellsbury, Justin Morneau, Jhonny Peralta, and Corey Hart.

A sure thing that can play and bat now is better than a "prospect" that could make it. I'd trade Colon and Starling for a Chase Headley. Other lower rated prospects for the rest of the bunch and a KC small market discount of course. smile


The Royals have Jason Adams, Yordano Ventura, Kyle Zimmer in the minors who have MLB talent but need some time to develop. Dayton and the Atlanta Braves philospohy is working. The hitting is also working as Moos, Butler, Gordan, Hoch, ect are getting to the majors they just aren't Hall of Famers. Everyone who could come up did and the kitchen cupboards and refrigerator is empty. When you sign a 35 year old Xavier Nady just to have a body in AAA, then you know your hurting.

The Royals will not be able to sign anyone, only through trade will an hitting acquisition be made.

Dayton will be around for a while. Patience and faith fellow Royals fans.


Should have traded Christian Colon and Bubba Starling.

Will Myers trade looking horrible right now.
