"The Royals are 250-1 to win the World Series, and there’s just enough high-variance talent there -- Adalberto Mondesi, Salvador Perez off the knee injury, Jakob Junis -- for me to want a small piece of that. They could accidentally assemble a bullpen; righty Josh Staumont was turning heads before everything shut down. They just have to hang on for 60 games, and no one in that division overwhelms me."
