Should the Royals buy before the Trade Deadline or sell their stars?

The Trade Deadline is a crazy time of year. With rumors flying and players changing teams, it can be hard to keep up with everything. The Cespedes Family BBQ boys are here to help you stay on top of it all. See also: the Red Sox third base situation, Yonder Alonso , Zack Cozart , the Dodgers, the Orioles, Sonny Gray , the reliever market and the Mets outfield.
With the Trade Deadline approaching, the Kansas City Royals currently face a conundrum: three of their core players from the 2015 World Series champions -- Eric Hosmer, Mike Moustakas, and Lorenzo Cain -- can all be free agents at the end of this season. For a team well out of contention, these would be three very attractive trade candidates. But the Royals are still in the thick of it in the AL Wild Card race, and seem hesitant to say goodbye to the trio that helped bring them their first World Series in 30 years. So the question is: Should the Royals buy or sell?
Check out the clip above to see which direction we think the Royals should go, with the help of our trade deadline expert, Peter Pachinko.
