The Royals won't trade Bonofacio. They love him in KC. They talk about it a lot on the radio (I live here).
Is anyone expecting some kind of bounce back from Vance Worley?
In my lineup/roster plans I have them both on the outside looking in, in favore or Correia, 2 FA signings as well as Gibson stronger and learning and Deduno building on what he has done when healthy. (There is the injury re-had bugaboo again)
Neither Worley nor Diamond are world beaters. But either, or both, have the potential and track record to show they can be serviceable, solid starters. And that is the key to me; if healthy again, mind refreshed with a new healthy season and proof you've done it before, you can do it again
My Hopeful prediction 2014 roster
C- Jose Molina/Josmil Pinto
SS- Jason Barlett, Debinson Romero, or Florimon:(
3rd- Trevor Plouffe possibly Sano?
UT- Doug Bernier, Eduardo Escobar
CF- Alex Presley/Darin Mastroianni and then Aaron Hicks later in the year
RF- Oswaldo Arcia
LF- Josh Willingham
UT- Alex Presley and Darin Mastroianni
2-Phil Hughes or Scott Kazmir
5-Kyle Gibson/Anthony Swarzak/Vance Worley/Scott Damond/Andrew Albers
later in the year maybe Alex Meyer
Kris Johnson Long Reliever
Glen Perkins Closer
Worley wasn't a bad pitcher when we acquired him. I wouldn't be surprised to see him in the rotation at all. We have a lot of iffy pitching options and I feel like at least one of those guys is going to step up and be in the rotation.
