Royals offseason moves


Here are the Royals priorities in the offseason

1-Retain or replace Santana as a #2 SP--Guthrie is a #3 at best

Shields, Santana-type, Guthrie, Duffy, Hoch/Ventura/Chen

2-Sign Ellsbury--we can afford both without outlay of much more $

-Santana $ is already $12mm (could be $15mm to keep)

-Ellsbury will be around $15mm (save Francouer $6.5, Chen $4.5, Tejada $1mm--can save Hoch or Davis at $4.5mm if desperate for cash)

Ellsbury accomplishes this: bat (avg & power), plusses up a great defense, plusses up great team speed, gives up proto lead-off guy (can move Gordon to RBI spot & further strengthen lineup)

These 2 moves sustain & add to what we accomplished TY & allows young guys room to be sprinkled in
