Royals Rewind 7/19-7/25

The Royals got the chance to face the AL East, with a three game series against Toronto and a four game trip to New York.  As the trade deadline approached, the Royals made one move, sending Alberto Callaspo to the Angels, while many other players were linked to rumored deals (though the best trade chip, David DeJesus, was lost to a season-ending thumb injury).

All that drama almost overshadowed the returns of Rick Ankiel off the disabled list and Alex Gordon from Triple A purgatory.
