The signing of Yubota as a set up man signals to me that the Royals are going to let Riske go to another club. I think it is going to come back and bite us in 2008 because Riske was more than a relief pitcher in the bullpen. He was a force as stated by Grienke and Soria in helping and teaching them. Riske got us out of a lot of jams in 2007 and I was always glad to see his number punched to come in from the bullpen. I hope Yubota works out for us, but it should would have been nice to give Riske the money instead of wasting it on a position player such as Guillen who might only play 100 games.
