Good for Salvy, that's exciting. I wouldn't want to return to Venezuela either.

It's just in a great part of town and by local landmarks

I'm just trying to imagine my reaction as a sulky 12 year old Royals fan if a time-traveler let me look at this picture..

A storied career and the book hasn't closed. ��#AlwaysRoyal pic.twitter.com/4mEiMfaRbH

Meh..he may get 1 last run for a few months. Nothing to lose.

Because jd owns the land. With the city paying for most of the cost they can jack up the labor and make 300million extra in money. Those parking garages around it will be torn down or taken over for additional profit that can be charged on other events. They won't have to split with Independence with the new deal they reach. The new stadium will allow premium costs to business suites and see an increase in value immediately. They will also leverage mlb to get another all-star game.
This is already a done deal with the people talking about it that are.
Then we can talk about blight of the empty Kaufman to be torn down. Heard rumors of the chiefs to legends. Would be cheaper to build up around Truman sports complex.

Perhaps Gordon has simply told the Royals he will retire if we trade him.

Ideally, he'd be open to a trade if it helped the Royals and gave him a late-season run with a contender. We'll see...

He wasn't interested in the open market.
There was not outside of him being a bench player.

To bad we are not a contender. Would love to see Nolan Arenado on this team because he wants out of Denver. Dude loves loves the game and is a major baller.:-)

Or the Royals were only interested in signing him if they had the flexibility to trade him later “possibly” when they’re out of it?

Maybe he really wants to play and two months somewhere else presumably in a pennant race is palatable whereas six aren’t.

Royals are also supposed to be looking at signing some starting pitching. Not a lot left - Taijuan Walker, Danny Salazar, Matt Harvey and Aaron Sanchez are possibilities.

Matt Harvey? Maybe we can give him his soul back....

I was pissed the Royals didn't make a run at Alex Wood.
