    Those tweets don’t hint at anything…

    I’d be very much in favor of it though

    More excited for the offseason than I was for 93% of the regular season.

    Quatraro is who I'd go after but based on Lesky's stuff, I'd be perfectly fine with Wathan too.

    I don't want Beltran or anyone else associated w/ the Astros shit.

    I think Vegas has Beltran as the favorite but I’m sure it’s because of his name.

    If KU fball & the Royals end up with decent coaches at the same time I'm taking it as a sign the apocalypse is coming.

    This is the best hire they could make.

    Also the last time they made the unanimous best hire was when they hired fucking Dayton so we may be screwed.

    Rank Mr Sherman’s off-season moves:

    1) Poaching the Rays coaching staff
    2) Promising a downtown stadium
    3) Running Phys out of the booth

    It would be more fun to hire a pitching coach and begin making transactions to improve this shitty team but what do I know....

    Sounds like a really good hire. Bring in Banny as head of pitching development and we’ve got a winner.

    Shocked we have done absolutely nothing, but at same time some of these contracts being given out are insane so it sort of doesn’t shock me we’ve done nothing.

    If you can't get excited about signing a projected 0.8 WAR starting pitcher, then son-of-a-gun do you even have a pulse?

    Just a classic meh Royals signing. A 5 starter that will eat innings and put up a 4.70 ERA and throw 140 innings.

    Good to see he led MLB in HR allowed two years ago
