Re: Alex Gordon?
I'm simply stating that this is the Royals view of Gordon and his signing. It's almost like the Votto signing but on a smaller economic level. "Look fans!! We actually signed some of our homegrown talent! We're building not sellling! You'd have to be from here to understand the fans bitterness about Beltran and many others the Royals have basically given away (the latest being Greinke)for years now, and their antipathy towards Glass the owner. There is just no way this franchise would sell Gordon because of the message it would send unless they got back a Bautista or Votto (good luck there) in exchange. The fans would have to be convinced it was an overwhelming win for the franchise. And Gordon just isn't good enough for that kind of haul.
