1) Jurickson Profar, SS, Grade B+: Borderline A-, grade is undecided basically. Outstanding defense, very young for his level, not sure how the hitting will develop but flashes a lot of promise and should be an average hitter at worst.

John Sickels That being said, would you take him as the center piece for a Grienke deal? (Needs a lot more, like Perez, +)

Terry (Kansas City): Are Colon Eibner and Adams gonna turn into good major leaguers to make the Royals draft not seem as bad at first glance? Jim Callis: How is the Royals' draft bad at first glance? There was no clear No. 4 overall pick, and Colon was a fine one. He might not stick at shortstop, but at worst I think you get an offensive second baseman. He's a near lock to reach his potential. Eibner should have gone in the middle or end of the first round with his power and athleticism. Adam has a very good arm. Kevin Chapman could get to Kansas City quickly, too. Nothing wrong with this draft

How bad a defender do you have to be to make DH your best position, per The Hardball Times. ...there are just flat out some players who should be plopped at DH.

Danny Gutierrez, who was 82-85 -- not a typo -- with no arm speed and a very restricted throwing motion. Gutierrez, who was suspended for unapproved use of Adderall but has a history of off-field issues dating back to his time in the Royals organization, is a non-prospect at this point unless his former low- to mid-90s velocity returns. Keith Law ESPN Insider - maybe trading him wasn't a bad idea

For Halladay, I looked for all complete game no hit shutouts with the pitcher allowing no more than one walk. From 1950+ there were 57 such games. For Lincecum, I looked for complete game shuouts with no more than one walk and at least 14 strikeouts. There were only 34. ---Rally (the person behind B-refs WAR numbers) What a great game 1 match up in the NLCS
