All-Star 1st Baseman Eric Hosmer recently signed a contract that sent him to San Diego.

This 8-year/$144 million deal is the largest deal in Padres franchise history.

This left some Royals fans in shock.  In my opinion Hosmer leaving Kansas City is disappointing, but this is actually what is best for the team.  With all of the extra money that we have since Hosmer didn’t accept the Royals $100 million offer we can possibly sign Moustakas, and maybe find a 1st baseman in the Free Agency.

On the other hand the Royals could just completely start a rebuild where we would start all of our prospects.  The Royals currently have the worst farm-system in the MLB according to Bleacher Report.  So this might mean that the Royals will be in a rebuild for awhile.

With Hosmer’s absence the Royals are going to need young players step up including Cheslor Cuthbert, and Hunter Dozier.  The Royals will also need Alex Gordon and Alcides Escobar to have a good comeback year.  So the Royals have a long rebuild in front of them, this will be hard for the fans to see their team lose more than normal and not make the playoffs for a while.
