*** Official 2018 Royals Offseason Repository ***
 
It's the end of the world as we know it... and we feel... fine?

2018 is a season of transition for the Royals, or at least it is at this point. Dayton Moore is back. Will he swing full into THE PROCESS 2.0? Or will he try to load up again and make some reload magic happen?

Pending Free Agents:
1B | Eric Hosmer | San Diego Padres, 8 years, $144 million ($5 million signing bonus; $20 million/year in Yrs 1-5; $13 million/year in Yrs 6-8 wth player opt out)

3B | Mike Moustaskas | Kansas City Royas, 1, $6.5 million

Be prepared for consecutive 100 loss seasons.

Glass blew it. He should have allowed Moore to leave, thus bringing in an entirely new front office.

Already claiming 100 loss seasons without even know a large portion of the roster for next year?


That's pretty ****ing stupid, Billay.

I'm going to disagree with you on that one. At this point, retaining the GM who built it once already, and who convinced Glass to act like a big boy owner... is safer than the unknown. Moore isn't perfect, but there's no guarantee the concessions he has WR in out of Glass and company stay if he does not.

I also don't see 100-loss bad unless they unload Perez and Duffy and etc over this offseason.

It's not a good team or a team that doesn't need some amazing luck to be a playoff contender, but it isn't 2005, 2006, 2007 level bad, either.

Already got a dipshit in here

Good luck, fans.

Meet me at the end of the 2018 when the Royals have lost close to 100 games.

The TV contact isn’t going to be a “savior”, either.

81/81 with “ superstars”.

Fans are weird.

Says one of the biggest Chiefs dipshits.

Red Dawg 11-17-2017 09:35 PM

Team is hosed. At least they got a title. That team was amazing.

Because I don't blindly follow a team that's won 2 playoff games since I've been alive? At least the Royals have won a championship recently

No faith in Moore in the draft. The rule changes in draft pick bonuses erased our only way to build team. Moore hasn't drafted anybody worth a damn outside of Merrifield and some relievers in a long time.

Let me know when Moore drafts a 1st rounder worth a shit or makes a trade that doesn’t involve a Cy Young winner that he *wins*.

Good luck.
