    2118 Season Discussion

    I was surprised to see there wasnt a post about the current season, my Royals have the top spot in the AL West but struggles against the East have me wondering how far this team can go. We're completely maxed out on salary, no scouting, draft picks gone through next season so its all or nothin'.

    But there has been a little excitement for me to write about. Chris Ponder no hits the O's, this is his 2nd career no-no in consecutive seasons. His 8-1 record is impressive but his ERA is uncharacteristically high at 3.41. Maybe this is a sign of things stabilizing for him.

    from the no hit post to his departure. Christopher Ponder will now be pitching for the Red Sox. The former ROY/CY/WSwinner & 2 time No hitter was moved for 3 picks and a few prospects. Now to move 2 or 3 others, who wants them? Picks for '19 or '20 considered.

    after trading away my top 2 pitchers there were spots to fill in the rotation so I was happy to see James Hixon was available. Sure he's 41 but his only CY came wearing a Royals uni in '08. Hes 7 wins shy of 300 wins and he'll probably fall short of the mark unless he comes back for season 19 next year. But he'll get every opportunity with KC. 1st start was a 5 inning affair allowing only 1 run that the BP blew. Im rooting for the guy who once hit the "100 Best Pitchers now" list back in the day.

    I get it, this forum is quiet but if you are reading and want a deadline steal check out the KC roster. Prices aren't ever going to be cheaper.

    It's going to be a long off season. I barely missed the playoffs with a team I thought was pretty darn good. I seriously want the next year to start now.
