2018 is a season of transition for the Royals, or at least it is at this point. Dayton Moore is back. Will he swing full into THE PROCESS 2.0? Or will he try to load up again and make some reload magic happen?

The White Sox appear to be doing it really well. I'm not sure KC has the ammo to boost their rebuild the way the Sox did.

Exactly. Add Lamb and Cody Reed to that mix. Except Strahm doesn't really fit into that bunch - we actually received players that we had some extended control of, one of which we flipped (Buchter) for more controllable arms.

It's a myth that we depleted the system via any of these trades. If none of those guys actually become quality, long-term MLB pieces, whatever affect they had on our organizational talent and rankings was a mirage. The only significant losses from trades during our WS runs were Odirizzi and Myers.

Our main issue has been recent misses in the draft. Last year looks to be the first solid draft we've had since the WS runs began.

Which reveals a real problem in the way they were running the development program during those early teens years.

They did a great job of helping guys max out their stuff. But that lends itself best to bullpen pieces, not stable starting pitchers. They've made some changes in the development system over the past few years (including downplaying the wrong of Bill Fischer, who is a fossil/relic of the past).

I've defended Moore's draft record - saying they have done pretty good in the first round overall, especially when weighing useful assets, but there's definitely room for improvement in early round and in overall draft approach.

I do like that perhaps they're starting to see more of the value of college bats with some advanced feel - like Gigliotti and Lopez - and move a little bit farther away from the crazy-toolsy-but-raw kids.

They need to nail this draft, that's for sure. They need to land at least two guys who can be premium talents. I'd like to see them in on advanced college arm with No. 2 upside. KC Baseball Prospectus did a nice write-up on Tristan Beck out of Stanford, who is a perfect fit there.

It's going to be fun to break down draft strategy. Even if they only get a second-tier comp pick for Moustakas, the Royals are going to have so many picks and such a big pool, it will allow them to get really creative.

I will say, too... that I think KC is building a nice corps of guys on track to arrive between 2019 and 2021...

If they have another strong draft and add some real premium talent (ideally, one hitter and one pitcher), things move forward nicely.

Oh, I agree, but as a fan, I would love the effort. The sheer number of quality prospects would give one hope.
