The Royals have played better in the second half and it's helped to create the offseason blueprint. Plus, the stadiums were revealed and the Royals head to Seattle.
You’re 100% right that to get the pieces we really need Melendez. It’s one for the offseason I’m sure. But your article today goes into it a little bit even. They need more talent. Plain and simple. Yes, it is entirely possible they get some guys from the far to contribute…but it doesn’t appear like the high end talent is coming up right now because it all graduated. So the big pieces to get better back are really Singer, Perez, Melendez in my eyes. How much you can get back for those three is a big key in or if you move them. But they certainly need some creative ways to get more talent back yet.
I don’t love the “competitive” spin on things but I get it. The broadcast needs something to talk about and technically it is true. I just think it can be a little misleading when they are still on pace as a 64 win team with the winning percentage the second half. But as you pointed out, its with no bullpen. I guess I’m just meh on it but you do have to start somewhere. So I guess that is good.
Had not heard the rumors of DM to the White Sox. That seems really strange to me. I am old enough that I will probably never go to a game in the new stadium, but just from the two videos I much prefer the look of the Clay County stadium .Too bad the teams won't build their own stadiums though. There is not a lot good talent on the free agent market this winter, is there? Maybe they can sneak out of Seattle with one game!!!!
> I also think it’s important to stress that these are renderings and I was told by someone who I think is in the know that you shouldn’t spend too much time nitpicking each individual detail. A lot can change with that.
Sure, but later when they unveil the final drawings and it has no crown vision and one measly fountain they tell us that it's too late.
Raise a fuss now! This is a cheap and soulless design for a stadium.
