About the author

Clint Scoles

I grew up on the mean gravel roads of Iowa where I started my love for baseball from the age of 2. George Brett and the voice of Denny Matthews deepened my love even more for the Royals as my father and I spent summers listening to the team on our deck or in the car on our way to or from my little league and high school games. Sports was always the common bond that my father and I enjoyed and the Royals were in the center of that. I currently live in La Vista with my wife, two sons, two dogs and a pair of gross cats where we are grinding through until we can move somewhere warm when we retire. I own Casino Cab Company and Bluffs Affordable Auto Repair in Council Bluffs trying to build my 1% empire. If you are in the area you can find me at Omaha Storm Chasers games on most nights or just follow me on twitter @ClintScoles.

    I am absolutely sick to my stomach at the thought of trading 6+ years of Myers for what will very likely be less than two years of James Shields, as he’s not going to resign and Moore will be looking to flip him at the 2014 deadline. Ugh. All I can hope is that somewhere in the reported “war room” the front office convened for this discussion last night that there is someone, anyone, or several of them who are able to talk Moore out of this.

    I’m with you !

    One other point. If Myers puts up just an average RF season in the same way that rookie Norichika Aoki did for the Brewers in 2012 then the Royals increase by 4.1 fWAR and 6 rWAR. That is a 4 win or 6 win improvement if he’s JUST AVERAGE and his ceiling is much greater than that.

    I don’t want to see the Royals trade Myers and his 6 years of controll for just 2 years of somebody that we don’t have a chance of signing to an extension. I would rather roll the dice with what we have or dream of signing Sanchez. I know we would have to have some guys have career years but I think the biggest thing would be a hot start to provide some confidence to these young kids.
