Who knows, though. They resigned Guthrie after last season because they were trying to compete. Maybe the same thing happens with Santana. I'd rather see them sell high with him at the trade deadline, but we'll see.
Bob Dutton was on 610 today saying that the trade market is really soft for a starting pitcher and the Royals wouldn't get that much in return for him. Said we'd be better off keeping him for the rest of the year and then seeing if we can sign him to a 3-4 year deal than trading him right now.
