Dick Kaegel, of MLB.com, reports Kansas City Royals 3B Alex Gordon could be dealt in the offseason, given OF Mark Teahen's ability to play third base. (KFFL)

 

Just a thought. High upside. Affordable. Is it an option? If so, what could be given up for him? If not, why? Just want to get your feedback.

Is Jose Guillen signed this year w/ KC? Is it possible they dump him b/c of his high salary to make a spot for Hermida? KC just picked up Coco Crisp today.

 

I also read that the Cubs are interested in David Dejesus. If he gets traded, a spot could be open.

I don't see how this thread is titled "Alex Gordon Will Be Traded"

 

It's an article that a WRITER -SPECULATES- that the Royals could move Alex Gordon instead of trading Mark Teahen, where trade talks have buzzed around.

 

It's a WRITER'S, SPECULATION. not FACTS. not WILL BE TRADED.

Pass.

 

Dominguez will be our future 3rd base man.

 

 

Yea and he'd be perfect to slide in once Gordon becomes too expensive in 3 more years.

 

Anyways it doesn't matter because NNY nailed it, here is the article -

Along with Jacobs at first base, the Royals also have Ross Gload, Billy Butler, Ryan Shealy and Kila Ka'aihue in the picture.

 

And, given Teahen's ability to play third base, his original position, that could even open third baseman Alex Gordon to the market.

And the question is (besides the obvious) how many infielders do we really need? Or want?

 

Unless we're rebuilding and parts were interchangeable for a season or two maybe it might make some sense but then you run into the Dominguez thing and you can't think of him at first unless you ignore how many players we have already at that position, and more coming.

 

And as Nny points out, it's pure speculation.

Jeremy Hermida

Age: 25 ------------> Career OPS+ of 103

 

Alex Gordon

Age: 24 ------------> Career OPS+ of 98

 

Pretty amazing how some of the same people who are anti-Hermida on here, are the same people who would love to have Alex Gordon.

 

Let me guess...it's b/c of the effort, right? :rolleyes:
