Ownership questions

This is probably the one that really hits the ears funny when you say it out loud. Especially since John Sherman hasn’t even been the team’s owner for one MLB Regular Season baseball game yet. How can we question someone’s intentions or what they’ve done when they have owned the team for less than six months?

We don’t know much of anything when it comes to how Sherman will operate the team, much less how much money he will deem to be “too much”. Therefore, we should hold off on speculations for right now. While the Gordon and Maikel Franco deals aren’t “flashy” or long-term, that doesn’t mean that this is now the KC Royals’ future when it comes to free agency.

Sherman seems like a person who has a good sense of where the Royals currently are, and this offseason shows that. He isn’t coming in and trying to be flashy, rather he is coming in and being realistic. As fans, that’s all we can ask for right now.
