Early, but still lots of questions that could be flushed out during winter meetings.

Crow to rotation? (Nope)
Navarro or maybe Colon at 2B? (Betancourt as backup :-t )
Resign Chen? ( :-o )

Chen resigned for 2 years. Sort of surprised at the Royals going 2 years, but not surprised Chen was looking for more than another 1 year deal.

Hochevar
Sanchez
Chen
Paulino
Duffy

Should mean that Montgomery is really going to need to be red hot to start in AAA in order to get a callup before the AS break.

Broxton signs a 1 year - $4m contract. Crow likely to AAA to stretch out into a starter.

Bullpen

Soria
Holland
Coleman
Broxton
Collins
Teaford
Wood / Adcock / Mendoza / Jeffress

With Crow in the bullpen, that might be the nastiest pen in baseball. Without him is still one of the best.

Updated with all the goings on as of late, mostly bad.

Soria, Perez, and Pina injured for the foreseeable future. Trade for backup catcher and utility OF. Crow back to the bullpen.

If Mendoza's leg is ok, it is going to be very hard to keep him out of the 5th spot considering he has no options left and Duffy does. Chen is struggling mightily this Spring and that 2 year contract is making me cringe.

Starting rotation if Opening Day was now could be:

Hochevar
Chen
Sanchez
Mendoza
Paulino

With Duffy back to AAA to start the season.

Gio back to AAA, likely to be followed soon by Duffy. Mendoza has just been too good this Spring to let walk away from the club. I think Getz has the first shot at being the full-time 2B but if anyone in baseball would be on even footing in a position battle with Betancourt, it would be Getz. The bullpen still going to be an interesting decision with so many guys pitching well.
