Kansas City Baseball Vault – That Time the Royals Traded For Johnny Cueto


With the best record in the AL and the biggest lead of any division-leading team, the Royals went out and got better.

We talked about the big, unprecedented (for the Royals) trade that sent Johnny Cueto to the Royals for Brandon Finnegan, John Lamb, and Cody Reed.

Not only is Cueto an ace, but his arrival also impacts the overall pitching staff and could help Yordano Ventura down the line as well.

We also discussed some other trade targets for the Royals and potential extensions for Alex Gordon and Lorenzo Cain.

Used to blog about the Royals, now just podcast about them. I used to be a Bob Hamelin fan, too. Oops.
