If I was a Royals fan, I'd be thrilled they are at least adding talent instead of dumping it to save a few dollars. Maybe they don't win the division, but they will certainly be more pleasant to watch for the next two years.
This got me thinking, who knows- maybe this will be the Rolen trade for KC?
A struggling franchise that most don't think is poised to contend finally does an about-face and deals a couple prospects for a proven veteran with only a year or two left on their contract...
Granted, Zach Stewart was no Wil Myers, but James Shields >> Scott Rolen.
