If Duffy is on the injured list, who is going to be in the rotation? There are two open spots, according to that roster.

Starting the season with Keller, Junis, and Lopez. They'll go through that rotation twice before letting another pitcher, Homer Bailey, start. Not sure what they do after that.

The Royals have indicated Homer Bailey will be added as the 4th starter. Either Yost or DMoore indicated that either Duffy or Fillmyer would be added as the 5th depending on Duffy's health.

Danny Duffy, another horrendous contract given out. That timespan when large contracts were given out to Gordon, Duffy, and Kennedy is regrettable. It will be nice here in a few years when we hopefully double our yearly payout from the TV contract and these 3 are gone. Depending on the progression of the current youngsters in both the majors and minors we should have the flexibility and ammunition to make some key additions around 2021-2022.

The Royals signed Duffy to his extension coming off a nearly 4-win season, with a year to go before he hit free agency.

It was his second time in three years performing at that level. They took a risk on him and it has gone wrong so far. Had he balled out again in 17, they would have been looking at a much bigger deal or him walking.

In hindsight, itís easy to look at it and say itís a bad bet. In the moment, the Royals were still trying to win in 17. The extension occurred a week before Yordano Venturaís death.

Had that not occurred, the Royals would have had the top two spots in their rotation set with homegrown guys at reasonable prices for the next half-decade.

Itís ironic. For decades, Royals fans complained about being cheap and not re-signing players. The Royals finally re-sign some stars or make some big spends, and things go sideways on every one.

You're right, it's not entirely fair to criticize the contract. By itself I would have just chalked it up to bad luck. My issue is with the three contracts as a whole. That's a lot of money tied up on three players whom haven't come even close to living up to the value of the contract.
