My Thoughts on the Kansas City Royals 2014 Off Season Moves…so far

Filed under: Baseball,Random Stuff,Sports — Scott @

Because absolutely nobody asked I thought I’d share my thoughts on the Royals off season moves.  Keep in mind, the off season is far from over but as the end of the year approaches it is mostly over so now seems like as good a time as any.

There has been much more discussion and interest around the Royals than usual – and actually that is saying a lot because off season moves is typically ALL Royals fans have starting about June of the still in progress season.
