Nats could be big winner in 3-team trade of Padres getting Rays' Myers

Anyone who rushes to judgment on the Rays-Padres-Nationals megadeal might want to recall the last time Wil Myers was traded. Remember? The Royals were ripped for trading Myers, then one of the game’s top hitting prospects, for two years of James Shields and as many as five of Wade Davis. Jake Odorizzi and others also went to the Rays, but Myers was the centerpiece, the untouchable...

Starting Pitcher Addition Will Determine Royals’ Offseason Success

Since the last time we talked, the Royals have been busy. But I’ll be honest, I’m not sure I can figure out exactly what they’re trying to do.Sure, the pieces they’ve added at least match up with the holes in the roster. Lose designated hitter Billy Butler?

FG on Fox: What’s Wrong With Wil Myers?

Two years ago, the Rays traded James Shields and Wade Davis to the Kansas City Royals for a package of talent centered around outfield prospect Wil Myers. The deal was divisive to say the least, primarily due to Myers’ inclusion; teams generally just didn’t trade prospects of his stature. When you have a 22 year […]

Royals Bullpen Depth Could Be Used in Multiple Ways

The reported re-signing of Luke Hochevar by the Kansas City Royals has done exactly what the organization said it was going to do this off-season, and that's restore some depth in the Royals bullpen for the 2015 season. On the surface, the Royals 2014 bullpen was quite good. And if you dig deeper, the bullpen was quite good, but it wasn't nearly as good as it was in 2013. While it...

Time to See if the Royals Will Trade From a Strength

There was precedent for Wade Davis‘ amazing Royals transformation. You could, for example, point to Wade Davis, in 2012. Or you could point to any number of other guys who’ve found comfortable homes in the bullpen after struggling as starters. But a year before Davis turned into an unhittable Royals reliever — that is, the […]
