Kinsler is a meh 2B, so that would be an improvement in the INF at any rate
Talk about posturing by the Rangers to increase desire for Andrus among suitors - or to also hedge their bet because unlike 85% of this board they don't believe the press clippings of top specs.
Hmm...Jeff Passan @JeffPassan
Sources: Royals "calling everyone" to trade Luke Hochevar and Bruce Chen. KC accelerating timetable to acquire starter, wants to free up $.
I didn't say they were. They are trying to free up money to get a pitcher and they've been linked to Lester/Shields who make quite a bit of $ in 2013-14. Connect the dots.
Well, Royals in a hurry = ready to make a strong move? Why don't we just take Hochevar or Chen along with Myers. We can afford it. If it helps?!
I might be wrong, but I think a bomb is about to explode. Fits with the Mauer and co. rumors. I am talking something big.
As I said before something big is brewing.Also the only reason napoli and swisher haven't already signed with us is because we wouldn't give them the 4th year.
Mauer just as indication that they are serious about making a big move. They were also in on tulowitzki and the marlins guys.
Just don't think something will get done with kc, we would have already agreed to take on chen and his 4m "peanuts".
A deal wirh TB is more likely since they are reluctant to take on any salary dump
Lets go ben!
Get it done
