I though it would be a nice break from gazing hopefully towards the upcoming season and look back, perhaps fondly, upon the disasters that were Royals seasons of old.
So I decided to do a little digging and come up with a fun question for you, one that a quick Google search shouldn't provide the answer too.
I think we've all come to accept, in our own way, that Dayton Moore is perhaps not the best judge of major league talent.
and because I hate myself, I decided to see how bad.
Much like God judging Soddam and Gommorah, I set a totally arbitrary limit for making this post, if Moore had signed more position players with league average OBP over 200 or more AB's in a season (.350 give or take) than years he has had his job, then I wouldn't bother. Incidentally, just like God, this left me looking for 5 people who had not strayed from the path of patience.
Since you're reading this, you can probably imagine how that turned out. I was unable to find 5 players.
In fact, I was able to find 4. Gregor Blanco came tantalizingly close, but ultimately did not get enough at bats.
So your trivia question for the day is this:
4 Players fit the criteria. Who were they?
Small hint: None of them currently play for the Royals.
