If this is it, Is it enough?

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

As we know, Dayton likes to get his Christmas shopping done early. So, if the Royals are now done with the offseason, what do you think?

The Moves

The Team

RF Aoki
2B Infante
1B Hosmer
DH Butler
LF Gordon
C Perez
3B Moustakas
CF Cain
SS Escobar

OF Maxwell
OF Dyson
C Hayes
IF Bonifacio

SP1 Shields
SP2 Vargas
SP3 Guthrie
SP4 Duffy
SP5 Davis *(will likely be Ventura once service time is gamed)

RP Holland
RP Herrera
RP Hochevar
RP Collins
RP Crow
RP Coleman
RP Bueno* (will be replaced by Davis)

Out of options: Lough

I believe the following still have options: Giavotella, Teaford, Joseph

The Payroll

The last good update we had was from RoyalsRetro about 2 weeks ago:
The Royals Payroll Situation Following the Vargas Signing

Since then, Getz (-1.3M) and Smith are out (-$500K) and Aoki is in (+1.95M) so that's almost a wash. While the details aren't out yet, let's carve up Infante's contract to 8/8/8/6. That puts the Royals at around $97M for the year.

Let's assume Lough gets traded for {$$ Considerations, Cash} or someone in the low minors.

The Verdict

If it's pencils down right now, how do you grade the Royals offseason?

Is it "hey, 2 good moves in a row so let's quit while we're ahead"? Or "the team's just not that good"? Somewhere in between?
