Royals also talking Billy Butler + prospects to Toronto. I don't see what a return would be that makes sense.
The Cardinals tried him as a corner outfielder years ago in high-A ball, and the fact the experiment lasted only about two weeks suggests it didn't take. He hits for average but not power. The year he hit .351 in the Midwest League, I read an article that suggested it was nothing more than a remarkable run of soft flares. Would love to see him land in an organization that would give him a chance to get that one major-league appearance, but since he's a double-A backup catcher entering his seventh season I doubt it's ever going to happen.

When we talk about the value of a win, should we treat them linearly on a player basis? I don't mean - are all wins created equal? - I agree that the 90th win is likely worth more than the 60th, but: is a one WAR player worth one-third of a three WAR player? I'd say no.
Personally, I think poor players hurt teams more than superstars help.
