Royals Urged to Take Things Slow by Hardball Times Article

29

This is a nice little article by THT's Joshua Fisher (who I am guessing reads Royals Review) explaining why the Royals should hold off on spending significant money or prospects to acquire frontline pitching for 2012. And to expand on one point, while there seems to be sentiment that a .500 Royals team could contend next year, the AL Central winner has averaged 93 wins over the last decade (and only finished with less than 90 wins twice during that time, 87 wins in 2009 and 89 wins in 2008). Sacrificing money or talent that could help toward winning 90 games in 2013 and beyond in exchange for a chance to win 83 games in 2012 is the wrong play.
