Even if the first 3 legs of that stool are locked in, the 4th would still be extremely fluid. It makes sense that other teams would start to jockey to be the last team in the door.
Schaum said something about the Arizona FO being big fans of Colon for a while. So maybe they value him a little more highly, who knows?

Also think the Royals can offer a lot more than even Colon, Ventura and Adam. Names like Jorge Bonifacio, Greg Holland, Aaron Crow, Kevlin Herrera could all be in play if the return for KC is Holland.

Holland fits all parameters KC wants - young, controlled, more upside, some proven big-league success.
