KC Royals get a poor grade for their play in the month of April

Royals poor grade

You can’t put too much in giving a grade for the first month of the Royals’ season but when we look at the predictions versus the predicament of the 2017 Kansas City Royals: most of us could only do if-then statements.

If we are winning, we are all in. If we are losing, goodbye to Eric Hosmer, Mike Moustakas, Lorenzo Cain, Jason Vargas and/or Alcides Escobar.

We also looked at the off-season moves with wonder as general manager Dayton Moore traded away Wade Davis, one of the game’s best closers, and Jarrod Dyson, who has game-changing speed.

Sure it is early and too often the struggles out of the gate tend to be weighed more heavily versus mid-season bumps and slumps. I do know this; we have no idea what the roster will look like come August and September. Mark down the July 31st trade deadline on your calendars and be prepared for a bumpy ride.
