About the author

David Lesky

I never had a chance. I was born into a family who loved baseball and the Royals, so I accordingly love baseball and the Royals. I just so happen to love to write also, which makes writing about the Royals for this site something that makes me happy each and every day. When I first started blogging, a fairly well known baseball writer told me to only do it until I'm unhappy doing it, but I don't see that coming any time soon.

    I know I continue to get grief but I still think Hosmer or Myers will give the most in return and are the easiest to replace.

    My no no no’s are Butler, Gordon, Moose, Perez and Escobar.

    But if I still think Tampa Bay would go for a Hosmer and Colon trade for Price or a Myers trade for Hellickson.

    You might even get Cobb thrown in if you include Adcock and Bueno as the Rays also need relief pitching.

    Just thought I would comment back and say that I appreciate the fact that you guys take the time to do this stuff without a great amount of comment. I understand you know there are a lot of dedicated fans that read what is written here and listen to the podcasts. Even though I disagree with what is written at times, keep up the good work.

    Thanks for the comment, iroyalfan.

    You could easily flip Hosmer and Moustakas in that order. I just feel like people are more willing to trade Hosmer if it brings back a strong return.

    All of these scenarios are if the Royals trade any of these guys for pitching, but I guess it could be for anything.

    And finally, I left Myers off because he doesn’t need to be replaced having not contributed to the big league team at all (obviously through no fault of his own).

    It seems like the “no, no, no” list you compiled is a little off. It should read Gordon/Butler, Moustakas, Hosmer. I am curious about whether you are thinking about acquiring pitchiing from the these targets (like the Marlins-who basically have nothing left, or the Tigers-Porcello has been a topic of conversation), or if these are pickups that could be made after the Royals acquire pitching from elsewhere for one of their bigger stars. I am slao interested in the fact that you did not place Myers on your “no, no, no” list since you do have very valuable known pieces like Gordon/Butler on there.
