This lineup just might work

25

Right now the Royals' hitters and fielders are not too bad, and some of them are going to improve. We'll have to see how it all turns out, of course, but we could send quite an adequate lineup out there that would be nearly contender-quality in terms of wOBA, wRC+, and the triple-slash, very young, and cheap. All we have to do is trade Treanor, O'Sullivan, Mazzaro, and Getz for a slightly-above-replacement-level RH-hitting catcher. Throw in Davies if they insist. Then, for the rest of the season we should try: Vs. RHP Cain CF R Gordon LF L Butler DH R Hosmer 1B L Moustakas 3B L Giavotella 2B R Cabrera RF L Escobar SS R Peña C L Vs. LHP Cain CF R Gordon LF L Butler DH R Hosmer 1B L Francoeur RF R Moustakas 3B L Giavotella 2B R RH Catcher C R Escobar SS R If they change their pitcher's handedness, we swap right fielders and catchers. (Neither Treanor nor Getz fits well into this scheme because they have backward platoon splits. Besides, neither of them has any upside.)
