What needs to be addressed the most by the Royals this off-season?

Photo by Jamie Squire/ Where would you make some changes? There are still three weeks left in the regular season, but the Royals have already been eliminated from post-season, and let’s face it, they were out of contention after the first week of the season. The club is very likely headed to their second consecutive 100-loss season, which means there is still a lot of work left to do in this rebuild. With Salvador Perez returning in 2020 after Tommy John surgery, and young backstops Meibrys Viloria, Cam Gallagher, and Nick Dini getting a taste of big league action, the catching...

Dayton Moore’s free agent nightmare season mercifully comes to a close

Photo by Frank Jansky/Icon Sportswire via It couldn’t have gone much worse. With Billy Hamilton designated for assignment the purge is complete. The Royals signed eight free agents who opened the season in Kansas City. All are gone. In some cases, there were trades. In others, underperformance and/or trade deadline factors led to a release. Some players have found new clubs. Others—including Hamilton as of this writing—have not. This is Dayton Moore’s annus horribilis. Of course, not all was lost. Martin Maldonado was signed out of necessity once Salvador Perez hit the injured...
