Royals sign Zach Day, re-sign Ducky

Per Rotoworld.

The Duckworth resigning can't be a bad move, he'll throw pain free next year. And even if he end up sucking again. Well, I'll remember that card I saw on Royales with Cheese that said "I'm feeling Ducky" and chuckle.

I know Zach Day a bit better. He came up with my Expos in 2002 and enjoyed a fine season out of the pen mostly. And in 2003 and 2004, he was above league average. I know that isn't much considering the fact that he pitched in the weak AL East, but as a 25 and 26 years old, it wasn't too shabby.

But the franchise moved in 2005 and he just couldn't find his confidence in DC, lost his control and end up getting either released or traded to Colorado(forgot who THEY, which by then isn't my team anymore got in return). Obviously Colorado isn't a place to pick up your confidence as he played mostly in AAA in his time with the Rockies and battled some injury problems.

He was released and claimed by the Nationals in 2006 and made 6 so-so starts but had rotator cuff issues.

When healthy and confident, Zach Day can give you league average numbers while log about 150ip max, he isn't a workhorse and he doesn't throw hard. What he does is pitching intelligently and have a good work attitude. I'm glad my new team got him.

Also: Can you think of a worse combination of being a Royals fan right after being an Expos fan? Geez, I thought I saw some hope in 2003...
