Seems like a lot of thought out there right now around the Braves that they should make a push for Santana.

At this point, I'm resigned to the fact that there's probably zero chance the Royals are sellers.

Again I dont really know who is out there that would greatly improve them. Stand pat...finish the season .500 or better. Then make some deals in the off season.

Sadly, I am too. I hope that Boston or Atlanta (or someone less obvious) will blow Dayton away tonight or tomorrow morning and the Royals will be rid of Santana (and possibly Hoch). Just show us that you understand how improbable this is Dayton. The smart fans aren't going to be angry with you for selling again, especially selling a rental. If you understand the mathematical improbability of the Royals' playoff hopes, you won't be mad.

I think we should still be looking to add a 2nd baseman. I'll go to war with what we have in the OF right now. I wanna see Santana stay...unless we got an offer that we can't refuse, which we'll never know.

I still think there is a lot of value for this franchise to make a push and win as many games as possible this year. If you can show other players that you wanna win, maybe signing free agents and re-signing our own guys will be a little easier in the future. Maybe we can actually sell some tickets in August in September for a change.

Kansas City is a baseball town. If they Royals go .500 this year (not an accomplishment), people will still be excited for next year. More so than usual. You don't need Santana to do that. Or you shouldn't. They play some good teams the rest of the way, but some pretty bad ones too. They play teams like Minnesota and CWS (and Miami) a lot.

I don't understand what possible value you see in keeping Ervin on for two months, unless you believe that the Royals are going to make the playoffs. After this year, no team like the Royals should want any part of trying to sign him to a long-term deal. His career didn't being in 2013. He has been up and down for years. And he is going to bring a lot of money this off-season.

The reports are that the Royals won't sell unless they are "blown away."

So the angels acquired Grant Green. So they are trading Kendrick for sure right?
