It's just so unlikely.
Only way? HYPER-BOLIC (clap, clap, clap,clap, clap)
The Royals FA money is not at the level to sign a Sanchez.
Shields has already stated he's open to an extension with the Royals and Miller is under control till 2016.
The offense will be OK if Hosmer and Moustakas hit like they were projected to as PROSPECTS. And Perez stays healthy all year.
And I like Myers but he is one year removed from a 254/353/393/745 line in AA ... some say due to nagging injuries.
The Royals needed pitching more than hitting. To acquire pitching you have to pay.
