The Kansas City Royals were very interested in the right-handed hitting outfielder, even though he isn’t any better than the outfield options the Royals already have on their roster.
It is looking more and more like Dayton Moore and the Kansas City Royals are going to whiff on all of the players they have been reported to have interest in.
Moore’s inability to making an important and meaningful addition to this roster is just another indication that he isn’t the right guy for the job. The fact that the Glass family will not loosen the pay strings just proves once again they have ZERO interest in actually making the Royals a real playoff contender.
Chris Denorfia wasn’t the answer for the Royals. He is a light hitter outfielder whose only positive attribute was that he was a right-hander. His offensive skills are no where near game changing. The Mariners are welcome to him.
There is less than an hour to go before the MLB Trade Deadline passes, and for all of the trade rumors surrounding the Kansas City Royals, it isn’t going to translate into a roster improving move.
The Detroit Tigers are improving their team by acquiring another staff ace in David Price. This move just puts the Royals even further behind the Tigers.
If the Royals weren’t going to truly go for it, they should have been sellers. Now they are stuck with a whole lot of nothing. Thanks, Glass family.
Stay tuned for any more Kansas City Royals trade news that may break.
