Kansas City Royals: Making Predictions for the Team’s Second Half
By Eric Boston
The Kansas City Royals season has been all over the place. They have gone from worst team in baseball to now potential buyers as the trade deadline approaches. After sending three representatives to the All-Star Game the second half hopes are limitless. What can fans expect?
Kansas City Royals GM Dayton Moore is going for it with the team’s core one last time. What will that ultimately mean? With basically two weeks to the deadline rumors are beginning to fly. Dee Gordon and now Jaime Garcia have both been linked to the Royals. There is more on the horizon than potential trades.
This writer loves the deadline, but once it passes there will still be plenty of baseball left to play. As the first half proved you simply can never know what is going to happen. It is a characteristic that makes true baseball fans so attracted to the game.
As the Kansas City Royals resume play on Friday now seems to be as good a time as any to make some predictions. Some seem safe, some realistic, and some crazy (that I’m sure will result in plenty of strongly worded comments). One thing that is certain we need to be prepared for anything.
