I don't see any reason why any of these guys need to be on the major league roster right now:

Ryan O'Hearn
Daniel Lynch
Wade Davis
Jakob Junis

Replace Lynch with Bubic in the rotation. Bring up Edward Olivares and play him in the OF so Soler can be DH. Bring up a couple pitchers to take up space in the bullpen until Hahn and Zimmer get back.

I’ve seen a few of you compare this to our 2012 or 2013 teams which were young and lost early before it clicked.

I’d push back on that. Our lineup is old. 3rd oldest in MLB. The only good young player is on the DL. There is no real elite help at AAA that we will see in the next year or two.

I think the young talent is centered on pitching in this incarnation of the Royals. In 2012-2013 our long-term success hinged on the success of our young hitters (Hosmer, Salvy, Cain, Moose, etc). We THOUGHT it hinged on our pitchers, too, but outside of Duffy and Yo, we had to rely on veterans to fill the gaps (wasn't our rotation in 2015 by far the oldest in the playoffs?)

In this incarnation of the team, it will be made or broken by the success of Lynch, Singer, Lacy, Bubic, Staumont, etc, with a mix of young bats (Witt, Mondi, Isbel) and veterans boosting the offense.

I agree. But numerically itís easier to fill a couple rotation spots than it is your lineup.

You can build a lineup each year easier than you can a top notch pitching staff.

Double header vs the White Sox and Lucas Giolito in South Chitown. What could go wrong?
