Top Five Reasons to Love the Rick Ankiel Signing

  1. Ankiel combines the outfield defense of Scott Podsednik with the plate approach of Mike Jacobs.
  2. He's the best free agent pitcher Dayton Moore has signed in two years.
  3. Kansas City now holds the record for most free agent outfielders acquired in one offseason without improving on Mitch Maier,.
  4. A 30-something right fielder who has been connected with HGH and is a bit of a headcase? What could possibly go wrong?
  5. Since Rany Jazayerli really wanted the Royals to sign Ankiel, this obviously paves the way for a tearful, on-air reconciliation with Dayton on the first "Rany on the Radio" of the 2010 season.

Five Best Things About the (No-Longer-Just-Rumored) Trade for Mike Jacobs, or, How I Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love Dayton Moore

  1. We now know that when Dayton Moore says he wants "power on the corners," he means that power is the ONLY thing he wants on the corners.
  2. Jacobs' home run power surely will be even more evident once he's out of his brutal home parks in New York and Florida, where he has only hit 42 career home runs as opposed to the 38 career home runs he has hit on the road.
  3. DMGM acquired the one guy who is so bad defensively that Trey Hillman will be forced to play Billy Butler at first base. If Butler is still around next season.
  4. We can now mock Dayton Moore's attitude toward on-base percentage with impunity, since I'm pretty sure Jacobs, Jose Guillen, and Ross Gload outweigh that one wonderful season when Joey Gathright OBPed .371 out of nowhere.
  5. A trade for Jacobs' bat and glove surely anticipates the long-awaited acquisition of Russell Branyan... to replace Alex Gordon at third.
