I played catcher through high school in Garland at Lakeview Centennial, but I was most productive on the bench where I dreamed of playing catcher at UT. The one claim I can make to an interesting baseball event is that our Pony League team was one win from the Pony League World Series.

Rios gonna be a Royal, but they really need Beltre, who they could afford to obtain if they had TWTW.

I'm hoping the same. At first, I was bummed by the headline. Then, I had the same thought you did, which raised my hopes.

I agree. I don't have a problem with it. The payroll disparities are soooo huge that a draft disparity has to be in place to keep some sort

Agreed. Two pitchers who could contribute in 2015, or could be a part of a trade package to get a ML contributor, is a good return.

The main point of trading Beltre is to stay competitive the next two years.

It's not a limit if KC goes all the way in on Beltre. They could put Kyle Zimmer on the table.

So was Odor. I think the real hold up on Rua is Adduci. As you pointed out, they need to see if Adduci is the next David Murphy.

Ryan Rua needs more love. I'm really curious about that dude's ability to be as effective as Odor is at the ML level.

It's disappointing Choice became overwhelmed. I really thought they would allow him to ride it out. He must be mentally fried.
