Royals get screwed, deluxe edition in Greinke trade


Ok- so the offense starved Royals get a couple banjo hitters in Lorenzo Cain and Alcides Escobar, a low level pitcher and the infamous PTMNL, who turns out to be a player a one-hitter away from a lifetime ban in MLB.  Oh and apparently they get $2 Mil, maybe in Walmart gift cards?  The Royals showed why they are probably the most incompetent bunch in baseball.  BTW- they give away a player who is now probably the best offensive SS in the NL Central.  Maybe that's not saying much, though.  But Yuniesky Betancourt certainly helps the Brewers' cause.  

 

Maybe Jake Odorizzi and Jeremy Jeffress turn out well for the Royals?  Nobody knows at this point.  They were both rated pretty high in the Milwaukee organization.  So I like this deal better than any of their prior trades - sending away Jermaine Dye for Neifi Perez; Johnny Damon for AJ Hynch, Angel Berroa and Roberto Hernandez; Carlos Beltran for Mark Teahen, Mike Wood and John Buck.  Hopefully this Greinke deal turns out better than any of those.
