Nobody wanted Mike Moustakas?!?!

Here's the only honest round-up I could find of the beloved Kansas City slugger making his return at a deep discount . . .

Spurned by free agency, Mike Moustakas takes pay cut, one-year deal to return to Royals

The Great Free Agent Stalemate of the winter of 2017-18 now has a human face. It is rugged and bearded and blue-capped. It may be wearing a smile when it next shows up in public, but there's a good chance that smile will be hiding some deep-seated frustration and bitterness, and with good reason.

Did he fire Scott Boras? If not, he should.

I believe the word you were looking for was "seeded", deep-seeded frustration indeed. Good thing he didn't take the $17.5M guaranteed for a year, well done Boras!

FWIW, Moose will be gone before the trade deadline, Royals signed him as a trading chip, there's no chance he finishes the season in Royal blue, unless he gets hurt or bats .190.

No: Deep seated is correct.
