Royals Hot Stove Index

The Royals are, like, really bad. Let’s look at who they can trade. If you haven’t noticed, the Royals aren’t playing very well. They are on pace for 110 losses and the Orioles are the only team who has lost more games than the Royals 46. They do, however, have several tradable assets. Whether it was intentional or not, Kansas City holds several assets that have either trade friendly contracts (Whit Merrifield) or are perfect rentals (Mike Moustakas). We are officially smack dab in the middle of June, leaving the Royals with roughly six weeks to work this for their benefit. They...

I maintain the position that without Gray, the Yankees don’t make the playoffs last year. This year, however, has been a slog. Gray’s pitched to a 5.98 ERA over 49.2 innings. His peripherals aren’t much better, as the right-hander owns a 4.79 FIP and an ugly 5.07 BB/9....
