Kansas City Royals trade OF Jorge Soler to the Atlanta Braves for OF Ender Inciarte, RHP Kyle Wright and C Alex Jackson

We know Liberty Media is too cheap to re-sign Josh Donaldson, so let's think outside the box for a way the Braves can replace his bat. Whit Merrifield is the player everyone keeps trying to have the Royals trade, but maybe we should look at AL home run champ Soler, who is eligible for free agency after 2021. Are the Royals going to be a playoff team in the next two years?

The Braves deal from their arsenal of pitching prospects. Wright was the fifth overall pick in 2017 out of Vanderbilt and made four starts for the Braves in 2019, but his stuff has backed up a little and he looks more mid-rotation starter than potential ace. Jackson hit 26 home runs at Triple-A, although that came with a .229 average and a lot of strikeouts. Inciarte is included to offset most of Soler's salary -- remember, Liberty Media and the Braves may be maxed out on payroll after signing Will Smith and Travis d'Arnaud -- and the Royals can keep him or flip him to a team looking for a center fielder.

The Braves can then slide Austin Riley to his natural position at third base, play Soler in left field and run with a Nick Markakis/Adam Duvall platoon in right. And Ronald Acuna Jr. permanently settles into center field for the next nine years.

Thatís a trade I could get behind, though I would rather just ask for Kyle Mueller and Inciarte.

Rusty Kuntz is back! Kuntz will join Matheny's staff, replacing Mitch Maier as 1B coach. Vance Wilson is new 3B coach: Mike Jirschele to be reassigned. Larry Carter takes over in bullpen. John Mabry is added -- no surprise. Grifol is bench coach. Eldred, Bradshaw return. #Royals

The Matheny experiment may not last a season. Hope Sherman ends it quick.

He isnít the hitting coach, so he canít do as much damage. Not sure what his actual duties are. I guess they can make up a bullshit job for him like they did with Grifol (who was the catching coordinator for five years).

Interesting trade came down.

The Padres acquire Tommy Pham and Jake Cronenworth for Hunter Renfroe and Xavier Edwards.

So with that the Pads have completely changed their OF approach, pretty sure they'd like to dump Wil Myers...matter of fact if you're the Royals you should give them a call they'd probably give you a legit prospect or 2 to take that contract since they have a butt ton of them.

I wouldn't mind getting prospects from Padres but don't see Dayton taking on the salary, $22.5 M for each of the next 3 years, and don't see William Bradford Myers value to the Kansas City team. He hit .239 last year with 168 strike outs. With a really good year, you might see Wil hit .250 and over 25 Home Runs.

It's about the Royals being shitty right now and being willing to take on his salary to be given a couple of solid prospects, the 10th prospect in their organization would be borderline top 5 here.

Not to mention there is a gaping hole a 1st base you could plug him into. The Royals should be willing to eat some money to get better for the future.

These are good points. If he can hit 250-25-89 then Iíd do this. We need prospects badly. If we canít deaft them letís be creative.

So apparently Blake Snell lost his shit on twitch and got pissed off about this trade...said they traded Tommy for a "slapdick prospect" and called his team management stupid.

Good luck waiting for Dayton Moore to actually come out ahead with a trade that helps the team. The mother fucker is so gun shy he'll just sit there and do nothing other than the minimum of drafting with our allotted picks, taking someone in rule 5, and signing a few nobodies in FA who won't last the year on the roster.
