Re: Alex Gordon?
I'll reiterate - unless you're paying fortune in prospect the Royals aren't trading Gordon. He and Hosmer are the face of a young franchise that is winning. Take away that horrible 12 game losing streak and they are something like 16-10. Thus is a young exciting team and they just made a pact of sorts with their fan base by signing Gordon LT. Add to that this is the last franchise in baseball that is going to eat part of a contract to get a deal done, this just isn't happening. You are out of touch if you really think the Royals can't compete next year in the AL Central. Tae awau that early losing streak and they'd compete this year - I wouldn't rule them out even given that. People have seen the "bad" Royals for so long they automaticlly think of them that way now and it's no longer so. These guys are young and talented and they have a younger and maybe even more talented up and comer on the farm at nearly every position.
