Vegas tabs Royals for 79 wins -- Best season in a decade

10

Vegas over/unders are out! The Royals are pegged at 79. 10th best among the American League teams. That seems a bit low to me, but certainly not low enough to bet the over. Tigers 90 White Sox 80.5 Royals 79 Indians 77.5 Twins 64.5 Dodgers, Nationals also at 90. Astros 59.5.

Jonah Keri ranks trade values

It's pretty clear the Royals won't have anyone on the top half of this list so his opinion is that Moustakas has the most trade value on the team followed by Gordon, Perez, and Escobar in that order (Myers would probably land in that group if he qualified--no service time). It's one opinion of course, but IF Moustakas really has the most value it might be wise to consider trading him.
