Yeah, it's obvious the Kansas City Royals are improving. As a franchise, and the recent play of the team has many people wondering, is this something that can be sustained? It's pretty obvious the Royals have two major needs on the big league club. A more consistent power threat in the lineup, and a more dependable back end starter.
Are the Royals wise to change things right now? The only move I would welcome right now is trading the lone power hitter in the lineup, Jose Guillen for anything they can get, which based on his play this year, should be something of value, maybe not considerable, but still, a useful prospect. After all the Royals have two of the three hitters in the PCL with an OPS over 1.000 and that being the enigmatic Alex Gordon and the fan favorite in waiting Kila Ka'aihue.
Doesn't it make sense for Dayton Moore to try and get something for Guillen? I mean the Royals can win games without him...they have younger, more versatile players in the wings, waiting.
It's almost as if the Royals have played themselves out of trading Dejesus making any sense...doesn't it?
With the Royals bevy of talented young prospects on the way, and the team playing pretty good ball of late at the Major League level, it's pretty exciting to see what transpires at the trade deadline. I mean after all, Bruce Chen is a piece now....who would have guessed that?
