Heard on my car radio that the Royals just traded Mike Moustakis. If they keep dumping fan favorites, they'll have to put all tickets on sale. I know a couple of folks who went to the games mainly to see Moose and join in the chant. Haven't had time to find out why they traded him. Maybe they don't need reasons for gutting the team.

Because they signed him to a one year contract. If they don't get something for him in a trade, they lose him at the end of the year anyway and get nothing. They're rebuilding for the future.

That said, the last batch of stars was lightning in a bottle. Given their limited payroll capacity, I doubt we'll see a winner again anytime soon.
