After what appeared to be a slow start to this offseason, things have really started to pick up across the league, with a few big-name players being taken off the board. While the Royals weren’t linked to Brian McCann, Jhonny Peralta, or Dan Haren, there are now fewer players on the market, meaning demand could be high for the remaining free agents, so instead of getting into a bidding war with other teams, the Royals may turn to the trade market to add remaining pieces. Obviously having such incredible bullpen depth could lead to a trade of Greg Holland or Luke Hochevar, either of which would offer the benefit of giving the organization more payroll flexibility in case Moore does wish to pursue a player with a higher price tag.

Here are some other links from around the Royals universe from this past weekend.

With the non-tender deadline a week away, and the Winter Meetings just a week after that, I would expect the hot stove to heat up even more. Even though the Royals may not make any other major moves, the rumors will still surely be flying as the offseason rolls on.
