I believe José Mijares was in the same boat as well in 2012. He was mysteriously released out of nowhere in August with a 2.56 ERA to that point. Maybe it wasn’t for publicly saying anything, but I remember that one being a shocker at the time with no other sensible explanation other than “he was an asshole”.

I was trying to remember who that was! If I recall correctly it was later reported that Mijares' attitude about the org was impacting Esky and the Royals wanted to remove that toxic behavior in the locker room ASAP.

They would trade Merrifield if someone pushed forward the right offer, but I don’t believe it came. With the way teams now hoard prospects, it is going to get harder for teams to justify trading players with lots of control just because the window is still several years off.

The lack of success of recent tankers like the White Sox also offers a cautionary tale. What they got for a player very similar to Merrifield has not really impressed.

Duncan, if the Royals get off to a hot start over the next couple of weeks.

Why not sign Keuchel or Kimbrel? They could still trade them right? Would there be a negative?

Not sure either is willing to take a one year deal, but if you can get Glass to approve an extra $20 million in payroll, sure you do it.

Royals are winning the division this year, I don't know why they wouldn't sign these two dickweeds.
