Royals - Acquired Decidedly Unmagical Magic Beans
Kansas City Royals - Signed P Scott Elarton to a 2-year contract; signed 1B Doug Mientkiewicz, 2B Mark Grudzielanek, and C Paul Bako to 1-year contracts.
Congratulations Allard, you’ve blown the Royals’ offseason wad in order to turn a 62-100 team into a 64-98 team. Grudzielanek is the only one that really has any kind of value to the Royals. To the teams lamenting that they can’t get Jonny Gomes from the Tampa Bay Devil Rays - the Royals just released Matt Diaz, who can probably be the next Gomes. Mientkiewicz has no utility to this team and Elarton and Bako are terrible. Thumbs up for Grudz, who’s probably a 25-run improvement over Gotay in the field. Thumbs way down for the rest, in the gladiator games sense.
I think Joe Posnanski should receive reparations for having to follow this team.
To make space, the Royals designated Ken Harvey, Matt Diaz, Shawn Camp, and Chris Demaria for assignment.
