PLUS...we just graduated Singer and Bubic to the majors last year. So technically, the pipeline has already started the replenishment process at the MLB level.

Once we get through the SB, I'll throw my own thoughts up on prospects and where the Royals stand.

Witt is going to be my #1 guy. Lacy and Lynch and Pena will follow.

Such a weird year to look at prospects. So much of what we normally can reference was all behind closed doors last season.

Contact-hitting extraordinaire. Porous walk rate though, and a lot of low-quality contact, but a true asset against southpaws.

If he makes your team, he's a fun guy to watch; I'm gonna miss him in Baltimore. Comes out of the dugout hacking, but doesn't strike out much, and sprays the ball all over. Little power to speak of but he might get some more gappers in that big outfield. And he'll drop down a bunt at any time. Defensively, he will make a couple nice hustle plays and a couple bonehead ones, too. I hope he does well for you guys.

Well, there’s that LH OF bat the Royals been wanting. Good buy low candidate on a down year, still only 26. Also getting money to cover his contract. Hopefully we didn’t give up too much prospect capital, but I like the move on the surface.

That lineup is looking pretty strong for 2021.

Mecca 02-10-2021 08:17 PM

That deal has Khalil Lee going to the Mets and Franchy Cordero to Boston.

Mecca 02-10-2021 08:18 PM

Lee is a great athlete but he does have some serious hit tool questions.

I like Lee, but to turn him into Benintendi is a huge ****ing win! And all we had to give up in addition was Franchy? Surely that canít be right. Thereís gotta be more.

If not, what a ****ing steal of a deal!
