DMIT - Round 2, part 2


The first part of Round 2 had some upsets and I think there are many more possibilities in part 2.  In these matchups, we get to re-live the acquisitions of such Royal greats as Yuniesky Betancourt, Tony Pena, Jr., Mike Jacobs, Jeff Francoeur, Jason Kendall and Yasuhiko Yabuta.  Some great players and tremendous contracts.  Good times...

Matchups are below the fold.

#1 Dan Cortes and Derrick Saito traded for Yuniesky Betancourt vs. #8 Erik Cordier traded for Tony Pena, Jr.

#5 Jeff Keppinger traded for Russ Haltiwanger vs. #4 Trey Hillman hired as Royals manager

#6 Brett Tomko signed to a one-year contract vs. #3 Ross Gload signed to a two-year contract extension

#10 John Bale signed to a two-year contract (first signing) vs. #2 Leo Nunez traded for Mike Jacobs

#1 Jason Kendall signed to a two-year contract vs. #8 Jeremy Affeldt and Denny Bautista traded for Ryan Shealy and Scott Dohmann

#4 Jeff Francoeur signed to a one-year contract plus mutual option vs. #12 Hideo Nomo signed to a minor league deal and eventually called up to the majors

#6 Carlos Rosa traded for Rey Navarro vs. #3 J.P. Howell traded for Joey Gathright

#2 Yasuhiko Yabuta signed to a two-year contract vs. #7 Jorge de la Rosa traded for a PTBNL (who may or may not have been Ramon Ramirez)
