On to the 10th.
I had to look it up, I guess there is a mutual option for 2020. I don't think the Royals will keep Alex.Nope, it was 4 years starting in 2016.
He's hinted at retirement before, but this renaissance - should he sustain it - could have him rethinking that. Give him credit for implicitly acknowledging the weight of the post-WS offensive struggles and just the pure grind of it all. I'm not a believer in an extra level of "trying" in a contract year (nor do I think you're really saying that about him), just committed professional guys trying to compete, contribute and not hear about what a disastrous contract the LAST one was.To piggyback a little on Gordon's contract, he has a $4-million buyout after the season. Unless Gordon puts up Mike Trout numbers, Royals aren't paying him $23-million next season. The way he's been playing to start the season, it's almost like Gordon is trying to get one more multi-year contract offer before his career winds down. It'll suck seeing him in another jersey.
