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.

I really was hoping the Houston series was a sign of life/the team waking up. That has turned sour in a hurry.

Offense has to do more. If Cain, Hosmer and Gordon don't produce, this offense probably isn't good enough.

They're pressing. Still a lot of season left, but they need to turn it pretty damn quick or they're going to get buried in the standings.

Hosmer: if he starts hitting, might be able to get a good prospect (top 40-50 type) as the centerpiece, with a couple of additional pieces.

Would expect a healthy Cain to return a similar haul, as well as Moustakas.

Escobar really doesn't have any trade value of note. His defense and offense have both regressed significantly.

9 down. 16 more to go in April.

I'll guess a 9-16 record at end of month.

Lol, right?

Maybe those idiots knew what they were talking about all along.

But it is too early for that...for now.

I'd like to trade Esky for a lottery ticket. Let Whit and Mondesi start everyday.

He's dealing with some nerve issues I believe. I can't think of the name of the diagnosis though.

Thoracic outlet syndrome. Same thing Chris Young had a couple of years before he joined the Royals.

I was at Game 1 of the WS in 2015. I could never hate Alex Gordon.

GMDM has done a poor job of putting together this atrocious bullpen. Coulple that with no hitting from Cain, Homer, Moss and even Moustakis. A recipe for 100 losses.

And perfect timing for a #1 overall pick, 3 to 4 top prospects for our departing trade pieces, and restart the rebuild.
