Match Made In ______?

So the Mariners released Richie Sexson.  The Royals could maybe possibly use a first baseman with power.  Boy could they ever.  Sexson ~had~ power.  Check out his history:

Could Sexson rediscover his power under the tutelage of Mike Barnett?  Could he at least be a stopgap---a worthy experiment?  Would a reunion with Guillen help---Guillen (hah!)?  Would Sexson help with the team's leadership void?  Tune in below for answers.  PS/Update - Every comment should begin with Heaven, Hell, or Purgatory. - TL
