Coach 09:05 PM 10-29-2018
As the season comes to a close after an awful season, there is a possibility of some hope since the team played better in late August to the end of the season.

Here are all the important dates you need to know for the 2018-19 MLB offseason. Some of them do involve the Royals, such as:

Oct. 29: As of 9 a.m. ET on Monday, all eligible players are free agents (Escobar - good riddance).

Oct. 31: Most contract option decisions are due on this date (Hammel should be declined, resulting $2 million buyout and Peralta should be accepted, resulting $3 million increase to the payroll, and could be future flip for additional minor leaguers if he performs well).

Spoiler!

Nov. 2: Deadline for teams to tender their eligible FA the qualifying offer.

Spoiler!

Nov. 3: Free agency begins.

Nov. 4: Gold Glove winners announced (Gordon & Perez).

Spoiler!

Nov. 6-8: General manager meetings in Carlsbad, California.

Nov. 12: Deadline for free agents to accept or reject the qualifying offer.

Nov. 14-15: Owners meetings in Atlanta (possible future CBA discussions).

Nov. 20: Deadline for teams to add eligible minor leaguers to the 40-man roster to protect them from the Rule 5 Draft.

Spoiler!


Nov. 26-29: MLB Players Association executive board meeting in Dallas (possible future CBA discussions).

Nov. 30: Non-tender deadline.

Dec. 9-13: Winter Meetings in Las Vegas. This is typically when all offseason hell breaks loose.

Dec. 13: Rule 5 Draft (could see the Royals taking a stab here).

Jan. 11: Deadline for teams and arbitration-eligible players to submit 2019 salary figures (I believe KC has some arb-eligible players).

Feb. 1-20: Arbitration hearings. You win some, you lose some.

Mid-Feb. : SPRING TRAINING!

As usual, let's have a good off-season discussion on ways that the Royals can/should/would do to improve. I will try to update the OP as the off-season goes along. And Duncan, you're more than welcome to provide us some information that I can add onto the OP. Just let me know.

And the only thing he said in response to the buzz around the clubhouse was that the game had gotten too soft.
Why are you guys questioning the Bible study stories? It wasn’t a secret. Players talked about it openly to the press. They held meetings in the clubhouse. There is no debate. It happened and was still happening when he was fired. Just google it for crissakes.

To be fair, only one person has been questioning the bible study stories.

And that person hasn't been seen around here in awhile.

Iíve been one of the strongest Moore defenders here and elsewhere.

Thatís over the second that ignoramus Matheny is named manager, which I fully expect.

Teams in the middle of a rebuild, with a model that will depend on young players being grown and established at the major leagues, have no business hiring a guy with Mathenyís track record.

He is the exact opposite of developing young players. He doesnít just not develop players, he retards their development by playing vets and not even talking regurally with the young players on their plYing status. You couldnít possibly hire someone worse.

Dont listen to these naysayers. Matheny did a great job with the Cardinals.

I'm not a big fan of this move, at all.
