Royals Move Davis to Bullpen, Lose Myers Trade

The Royals announced their decision to move Wade Davis to the bullpen today.  While I agree with this decision it should push some clouds in the direction of the folks who were in favor of the Wil Myers trade.  In the end it looks like the Royals traded the AL Rookie of the Year and his six years of service time for two years of James Shields as a starter and a over a half of season of bad starting pitchi ...

Revisiting the 2011 BA Prospect Handbook

What the Royals Gave Up

The Royals gave up a couple longshots, a decent pitching prospect and a real stud in the trade.   Patrick Leonard - The Royals 5th round pick in 2011 showed plenty of power in his lone season with the club tying for Appy League HR title.  Leonard along with Mike Montgomery is the biggest longshot in this deal but his right-handed power along with his decent athleticism that should allow him to stick a ...

How close are the Royals to the Tigers?

Pine Tar Press Top 40 Royals Prospects

#1 Wil Myers - The crown jewel of the organization shouldn't have qualified for this list but will instead wait his turn in 2013 for another Frenchy flop.  As a Royals player I believe Wil could be a major impact player, if they choose to trade him they should do so for no less than Matt Moore.  The gap between he and #2 is quite large.       Kyle Zimmer (2) - Some of the best raw stuff in ...
