The organization has leaned heavily on its development system in recent years, and that has left the minor league ranks struggling to replenish itself. There aren’t as many high-ceiling talents as there were in recent years – thanks to the promotions, as well as the burn out of prospects such as ...
BEST OF MAXIM
If I am trying to study for an exam, the last thing you should do is send me a text message informing me that the Boston Red Sox are in talks to acquire one of the best prospects in Major League Baseball.
Of course, this is exactly what my friend Ryan Courville did with a simple text message that read the following:
“Will Myers for Jon Lester?”
I spit out my coffee and immediately...
The Royals appear serious about making a run at contention in 2013, and they’re willing to trade away some of their better prospects to prove it.
With a report swirling that Kansas City was discussing a swap of top prospect Wil Myers with the Red Sox in exchange for Jon Lester, many Boston fans are likely wondering who exactly this youngster is and whether he might be worth trading...
Ben and Sam discuss what we can learn from the rumors that Royals prospect Wil Myers is available via trade.
I believe the Royals are a team on the way up. It’s hard to see that sometimes, especially with all the losing over the years, a disappointing 2012 season and the sometimes questionable moves of General Manager Dayton Moore. But the team is much better than it was just a couple of years ago and there’s plenty to be thankful for.
Except for second base and right field, the position...
The Kansas City Royals have been an exercise in futility for the past two decades. In fact, the only thing separating them from being in the exact same category as the Pittsburgh Pirates is their 83 win season in 2003. And that season was in the middle of a stretch from 2002-2006 where the lost 100 or more games in four of those five seasons. The last four seasons however have seen...
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
Even so, it’s a heck of a chip — if the Royals choose to use it. Wil Myers was the consensus minor-league player of the year and is already drawing heavy interest from numerous clubs.
While the Royals are...
The Kansas City Royals are looking to add a starting pitcher who can instantly move to the front of the rotation, possibly someone who could be a true ace. To do so, though, they would likely have to give up a young prospect. The question is whether it is worth it to do so, and whether the Royals can afford a front of the line starting pitcher.

The price must be right
Speculation and rumor concerning Kansas City 1B/DH Billy Butler began earlier this week, but nothing has advanced the story from the Seattle Mariners.
As a true M’s fan, I promised myself I would not write anything negative about the Mariners once Chone Figgins was finally gone.
Either the end of his contract or the releasing of the 3B/LF/2B would be all...
The Royals have already landed former Angels starting pitcher Ervin Santana and kept Jeremy Guthrie in house for three more seasons — and they’re looking to add even more pitching.
Jon Lester and James Shields are two names that have popped up in Royals internal discussions, according to Kansas City Star reporter Bob Dutton. Kansas City general manager Dayton Moore wants to add...
The Red Sox and Royals have discussed a trade that would send Jon Lester to Kansas City for Wil Myers. Does it make sense to consider trading Lester when the rotation is so thin?
Rob Bradford is reporting that the Red Sox and Royals d...
It came out on Monday night that the Red Sox and Royals have been discussing a trade of starting pitcher Jon Lester for super prospect outfielder Wil Myers. Myers is no standard-issue prospect, though, as he ranked #28 in Baseball Ame...
