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.

It's still ok to criticize him as a manager though. Just like it's ok to criticize Hos when he disappears for a month.

Or Alex when he poops on himself at the plate, etc.

Edit: don't ****ing bash LoCain though. Or my daughter will hunt you and disembowel you.
Understandable for sure and it is ok to criticize...just annoying when some say that team could've won with any manager...would buck showalter have won with them? Who knows...think Ned deserves credit too.

The only critique I'll offer of Ned is one that he largely abandoned in the 2015 playoffs...
Relying too much/too long on his mediocre starters.

Pushing too deep with Guthrie and Vargas cost KC that World Series. But he learned from it and didn't repeat those mistakes the following year.

I'm rather encouraged by Bonifacio's approach at the plate. He's always had quick hands and good raw power, but he really takes good at bats.

That's encouraging, as we saw the same thing from Cuthbert when he got regular ABs last year, and even Merrifield and Eibner are examples of system products who have good ABs.

Gives you some hope that the farm system products will come in more ready to produce and adapt than the Hosmer-Moustakas wave, which was stubborn and had to fail a lot before adjusting.

You would hope those are some lessons RA Mondesi can learn in extended time at Omaha. He has performed well with the bat down there.

Yeah it was, but Hos shouldn't have been swinging at crap pitches early in the AB.
