He takes good care of himself, has good mechanics, and has never really been a flamethrower. I don't think we'll see his mid-30s destroy him like it does some pitchers.

Sounds good to me. I hope you're right!

Can't afford to take that risk if you're KC.
Pretty much. If we could even get a little crazy and go 3 for 66-75, I'd be great with it. But the Royals simply cannot risk having potentially $40M+ in dead money because of age.

Naturally, the risk of injury is always there for everyone.

Coming from a Cardinals fan who's become a pseudo Royals fan from living in KC.

In regards to Shields, like the Cards have done with their young pitching and the influx the Royals have coming on, I'm not sure you go overboard any bit to sign Shields.

I would think the way to go is let him play it out, may the offer Deez just suggested and if he doesn't take it, probably let him walk, using this year to develop guys in the pipeline.

If we dealt Hoch, Davis, and Bonifacio we'd have $13.8 million to pay Santana. If the draft pick does kill his market a la Lohse, that would be doable.

Dealing Hoch and Davis for prospects and using the proceeds to sign Santana for another one year deal? I am good with it. That would make our rotation look a lot better. Shields/Santana/Vargas/Guthrie/Duffy and if Ventura is just lighting the world on fire in AAA we can deal Santana at the break.

Great start to the thread. Like most of you, I'm a fan of most of what the team has done so far this offseason. Can't wait to see how the team comes together come the beginning of the season!

Not a chance in hell.

The last thing Santana is going to do is sign a 1-year deal. He will take the longest contract he can get. They all do.

I'm glad they could find four games that are worth watching again! Heh...progress, right? I've got a fever, and the only prescription, is eight hours of Royals Baseball! I'm sure Hud will be stoked!
