Let me ask you, if you were a General Manager would you choose a player with these numbers? I don’t believe that any of our outfielders would be of interest to a General Manager. 2nd base, 3rd base, and catcher probably would not help any other team. The only positions that could be of interest is first base and possibly shortstop. Billy still needs to step it up with some more pop in his bat or he will also be less attractive. The Kansas City Royals shortstop is the one that shocks me. I didn’t realize that he was doing as well as he is.
The Royals have a long way to go to be an offensive threat. The numbers above just don’t give you a chance to win. The Kansas City baseball team only has two hitters with double digit home runs. Even with the Yankees rotation, you are not going to win games with those bats.
