I would love to see the Royals spend some real money on this and solve their depth problem in the middle infield.
Seriously, an argument can be made that Moore has replenished the system in most areas, with the possible exception of middle infield prospects. Colon was not all that impressive (although he should be given a pass perhaps, for being his first season of pro ball), and as much as I like Giavatella, there are concerns about his glove being a liability at 2B. Toss in the uncertainty about Bianchi's ability to stay healthy, and one could argue that we don't have ideal minor league depth in the middle infield.
Now, I don't know much about Noshioka (other than the short blurb in ESPN), and I certainly understand the difficulty in translating Japanese league stats to MLB. All that being said, would this be a good gamble for the Royals? Would Glass even have the stones to compete for him?
