Clubs that have talked to the Pirates believe that James Loney is emerging as their top choice at first base. They are also interested in Adam Lind and Mitch Moreland.
What has to mentally wrong with you to ever consider James Loney as your top choice at anything? James Loney isn't his own families first choice to start at 1B at the family reunion softball game. If the Pirates want to remain among the elite of the NL this year and in the future they must stop acting like a pathetic small market scrap seeking franchise.ANALYST: Jeff Mans
Kendrys Morales went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored in the Royals 7-1 win over the Twins on Monday.
Morales is raking to start the season, hitting .358 with 12 runs, two home runs and nine RBI as the Royals everyday DH and cleanup hitter. 2014 was a lost year for Morales as he struggled to find a role with the Mariners and Twins but he showed capable of being a productive player over the two seasons prior where he hits a combined 45 home runs over the two years. Morales was one of the more promising offensive players in the league before a devastating ankle injury nearly ended his career in 2010 but if his hot start is any indication of things to come those who took a chance on Kendrys could be in for a solid season.
