General Manager Dayton Moore has said many times that the team will be very aggressive in the off-season following the 2012 season. But will the fans see any "aggressive" moves? I'm not so sure. Before the Wednesday trade deadline, Moore had plenty of chances to get a decent to good starting pitcher and he didn't. He also stated that if any trades were made, they were going to be for "Major League ready talent".
The Royals did strike one deal sending right-handed closer Jonathan Broxton to the Cincinnati Reds but in return for 2 minor league pitchers.
Now don't get me wrong, I think this was a good deal considering the Reds will only have Broxton (23 saves with Royals) for 2 months then, unless a deal is made, he will be a free-agent.
So it's good to get at least something in return.
The two prospects we received, J.C. Sulbaran (Former High-School teammate of Hosmer) and Donnie Joseph, were ranked among the top 30 Reds prospects.
