As a Royals fan, I don't like it either. I mean, it's the same old song and dance. Once Cain and Escobar get close to FA status (if they pan out!), they will be flipped for other prospects, forever being in a vicious cycle of rebuilding and NEVER competing for anything better than third place.
Im doubting Cain was the CF for the next decade. He is a nice prospect and all, but still ..
He's a 250-260 hitter, with no power, and a little speed.
Maybe 4th outfielder for the next decade ...
