Chiefsplanet’s (Proposed) 2017 Season Title: One Last Ride

2011 Prelude:

Spoiler!


The 2017 season undoubtably begins in shadow of Yordano Ventura’s tragic death in the offseason. David Glass again bucked expectation and fan vitriol to go all in on his budget, and the core, despite the heartstring tugging trades of Davis and Dyson, remains primed for another push to the promised land. Will the Royals make another deep run into October? Or will they conduct the largest deadline sell off in Major League history?

Even with the expectations, predictions and hype spanning back from 2011 - the journey this team embarked on since 2013 was sweeter than anything any of us could have imagined. Even if this team goes on a 2004 styled losing binge this year, all is not lost. As this will push the Royals to conduct a sell off for minor league talent that will reignite the incredible optimism that permeated through this place in 2011. At the end of the day, this team actually did it, they somehow found a way to defy all of the odds that the MLB set against them to take the crown.
Spoiler!


2017's Burning Questions

1. What is the threshold between being “buyers” and “sellers” at the deadline?

Spoiler!


2. Can Gordo and Moose bounce back to 2015 levels?

Spoiler!


3. Can Ned Yost manage a bullpen?

Spoiler!


4. Will the Royals find a boost from an unexpected X-Factor to lift them to contention?

Spoiler!


5. Can Jorge Soler and Brandon Moss be productive contributors in Kauffman’s dimensions?

Spoiler!


Bonus Question - Is Raul Mondesi truly ready to be an everyday player?

Spoiler!


We’re all in again, folks. Buckle in and enjoy the ride.

Royals wasting no more time on this bullshit. Just optioned Strahm to Omaha. No corresponding moves have been made, but there are two open roster spots. Word going around is that two relievers will be making their way to KC.

I'd bet money on two relievers too. We're already leaning too much on Moylan and Minor. They have to try and save Young for long relief opportunities, and Wood hasn't been great either.

That really underscores just how valuable each football game and how insignificant each individual baseball game is. In a nutshell each NFL game is 10 times more important than a MLB game.

That doesn't work. The final standings shown minimal separation at the end between playoff teams and those who just miss it. You can't just say "oh who cares we are 2-5, that's 1/23 a season". A couple this week could make the diff on October 1. Look at the 2014 Royals, 2 more losses they don't get in. 1 more, and they'd have played at Oakland not KC for the wild card

It goes both ways. In football there are often three or four 9-7 teams with only 1 or 2 wildcard spots for them to get in - only those slots are decided by things such as their divisional or conference record.

Kyle Zimmer moving from AA-NWA to AAA-Omaha, where he will continue to start. He pitched pretty well in his first start in NWA - 4 IP 6H 1 ER 6 K's 0 BB. From what I can see he has been touching 95 on the gun. Encouraging, and if he's healthy, I bet he gets at least a cup of coffee with the Royals by September.

Other pitchers on the 40-man eligible to be recalled following the demotions of Gore and Strahm are:
Scott Alexander (L)
Miguel Almonte (R)
Andrew Edwards (R)
Jake Junis (R)
Kevin McCarthy (R)

In all likelihood two of the above five players are coming to KC.

I think Alexander for sure. He almost made the team out of camp.
Don't you think they are also looking at the vet retreds like Parnell and Alberquerque?

If I had to guess it would be Alexander and Junis.

Parnell and Alburquerque are not on the 40-man roster, which is currently full IIRC. So for one of them to be eligible to be called up, someone on the 40-man would have to clear waivers or be traded.

Man, tough on Strahm. I really like his Arsenal and hope he can get his fastball command straightened out. They're going to need him pitching well.

Sommer's first turn was encouraging. Wouldn't be surprised to see them put him in the pen in Omaha to prep him for the big league club. He needs to limit his innings this year, anyway, and could be a major weapon out of the bullpen with his arsenal.

Expect Alexander and one of Kennedy or Junis to get the big-league call. Most likely Kennedy, I think, since they probably would like to keep Junis stretched out as SP depth.
