    What can trading "rental" players get you?

    Most reports have the Royals as buyers this trade deadline, or at least a team that will hold. But with the team slumping the last two weeks, many fans are now calling on the team to sell, and begin the rebuilding process by dealing their impending free agents - Eric Hosmer, Mike Moustakas, Lorenzo Cain, and Jason Vargas.
