2018 Omaha Storm Chasers/KC Royals

Postby Coyote » Sun Jan 28, 2018 5:34 pm

LoCain signed with the Brewers the other day and re-signed Alcides Escobar.
So what does this men for the Storm Chasers. Who might be called up? Or sent down (Raul Mondesi?)
Will they sign Eric Hosmer. What about the trade rumors of Danny Duffy, Whit Merrifield, and Kelvin Herrera?
Sounds like the Royals want to keep their team payroll between $100-$110M so they may have to go young.

One reporter said the Padres won b/c they were willing to allow Hosmer to opt out after year 5 and KC wasn't willing to do that.

Another reporter said the Padres offered more front end money while the Royals had it back end heavy.

Basically means he is most likely opting out at 33 and going for one more big deal in 5 years then, as long as his production is still there. Gotta play the game, can't blame KC or Hos really. KC wanted a contract to make him a lifetime Royal, Hos has it structured to make the most of his playing time $ wise.
