But Jebus, what in the hell is Dayton thinking? I understand you need to win now, but did this really make you considerably better? I feel like this takes us from a bad team to a below average team. Definitely don't think this makes us contenders with Detroit and I have my doubts that we can compete for a wild card, too.
Since I saw the news during the end of the SNF game, I feel like I've been punched in the gut. For the first time in my lifelong (23 yrs old) Royals fanhood, I don't feel like I can support this team anymore. I'm seriously considering jumping on the Rays bandwagon (or any team not named the Pirates, really) until either DM gets fired, Glass sells, or both things come to pass. I'm just so very tired of losing every year and I don't think 2013 will be much different.
I'm going to try to go to sleep. I'm sure when I wake up, I'll still be a dumbass Royals fan despite tonight's happenings.
Anyway, go back to discussing the trade, I enjoy all the different views.
I initially thought about this as well, but I am giving Dayton one more year of my committed fanship before I make such a decision. He has sold the farm to win in 2013-2014, and to have done so puts his job on the line. Okay Dayton, the deal is done, now it's time to put up or shut up. If Myers goes in a Brandon Wood like direction, (his propensity to the strikeout was always a concern) and the Royals make the playoffs sometime in the next two years, Moore could end up looking like a genius. Heck, I'll even take Myers turning out as a stud if it means the Royals become a legitimate competitor, we haven't had this in what, 26 years?
But this is it, Dayton, if this doesn't work, Goooodbye.
