Evaluating the Royals’ return

Just three seasons ago, it appeared the Royals had the winning formula in place. Not just on the field, winning two consecutive pennants and a World Series, but sustaining a winning culture for the future.

Now the building blocks, turning into expensive stars, could be on their way out of town sooner than later.

The enviable position the Chicago Cubs find themselves in, shouldering a boatload of prospects, could help tempt KC to replace a current piece for the future.

Wood, however, should come relatively cheap. What’s the going rate for a solid, all-around pitcher? Surely nothing close to the likes of prized prospect Eloy Jimenez being floated in talks for Tampa Bay Rays’ Chris Archer.
