I love the sound of faking Glass.
The payroll does seem a bit lowe.
Club officials said Thursday that the $70 million payroll figure encompasses the entire 40-man roster — not merely the 25-man roster on Opening Day. The difference between the payrolls for the 25-man and 40-man rosters is roughly $3 million. So far, the Royals are projected to spend $68 million on their 40-man roster.
On Wednesday night, club officials said that the $70 million figure included not only the 40-man roster, but also signing-bonus limits for the draft and international spending. That made the situation look especially bleak: Spending on the draft and international signings is roughly budgeted at $10 million, which would’ve left the Royals $8 million in the red.
Club officials later corrected those figures, saying draft and international spending is not included in the payroll.
Royals being willing to trade prospects for established (and therefore "expensive") starting pitching.
I would love Bauer, but his unorthodox pitching regiment would likely clash with their traditional thinking. IIRC, there were rumors he asked the Royals not to draft him because of this.
I think someone here mentioned Myers for Jarrod Parker which might be an interesting swap
16 - I agree. There was some talk maybe of Jeremy Hellickson (who is not a prospect) or James Paxton (who is a prospect, but not nearly enough) or Danny Hultzen (better, but still not good enough for Myers). I think someone here mentioned Myers for Jarrod Parker which might be an interesting swap.
