Kearns or Mench to KC?

Postby Arrowhead Nation » Fri Dec 10, 2004 2:32 pm

In todays edition of the KC Star, Allard Baird names those two guys as the top two names the ROyals are wanting. They would like one or both. KC is so strapped for cash, but I would love seeing eitehr of these guys, mainly Mench manning a corner OF spot.

I was suprised they didnt go after DYe as everyone aroudn here thought they would. Dye lives in KC in the offseason and they let him go to a rival...but thats David Glass for ya.

I think Mench, playing everyday is a 25 HR player, do you agree?

I agree, he'd be an adequate starting OFer...not a star by any means, but adequate.

R. Hernandez?

The Reds are desperate for pitching.

The Star also pointed out that the Reds are wanting the world for Kearns and it is not likely we have that much to give up for him.

I am hearing some rumors that KC might be involved in trade talks with the Cubs for Sosa. That would shock the world.

That would also make absolutely no sense unless the Cubs eat part of the contract. If they're willing to spend that kind of money why not resign Beltran? :-D

Plus, Sosa would have to waive his right to a guaranteed $18M contract for 2006 I believe, that's triggered if he gets traded. Why the hell would KC want Sosa anyway? All he can do is hit HR's and Kauffman is the worst HR park in the majors other than Petco.

Most of the Sosa talk involved Sweeney (actually most of the Royals trade talks involve Sweeney) and considering the Cubs have D. Lee at first and no DH spot the rumors never made any sense whatsoever.

I don't see the Royals making any sort of substantial trades unless perhaps the Padres feel the need for more crappy pitchers off of the Royals roster. They do have some extra cash to use now with Juan gone so could make a run at a pitcher like Sele, maybe Estes. What they really need is one decent power bat at a corner outfield position maybe Ray Lankford.

If Kearns can stay healthy I believe he can be a very good player wherever he plays...

Mench 04-438 69 122 26 71 33 0 0.2785 0.3347 0.5388

He will be 26 this year. If he gets a fulltime gig I see 30 dingers.
