For years, people have been wondering what would happen if the Mariners got to play against Willie Ballgame, or Miguel Olivo, or Horacio Ramirez, or a whole team full of Mariner cast-offs. Now we have our answer. The Mariners would get the shit kicked out of them.

Lookout Landing

Fangraphs ranks the Royals System

Overall: C- The Royals are a clear step ahead of the previous three teams, but still have an awful lot of work to do before they could ever be considered a legitimate World Series contender. Unfortunately, the moves the team has been making over the last year don’t inspire an awful lot of confidence that the team is going to make the necessary transition in philosophy, and filling out the roster with replacement level veterans is simply never going to work. With a smaller paryoll, they have to emulate the Cleveland/Oakland/Minnesota/Atlanta philosophies of getting big returns on small invetments, and right now, that’s just not happening in Kansas City. Suffice to say: Ouch.

Willie Ballgame is underpaid

by at least one metric (MORP from BP)*: "Here's a quick rundown of the players Dayton has brought in with full control of their contracts. That means we include guys like Crisp, because the Royals made the trade knowing how much they'd pay, but not guys like Jacobs, because he's still in his arbitration years. The underpaid: Willie Bloomquist, by $150,000 Coco Crisp, by $500,000 Gil Meche, by $100,000 Juan Cruz, by $350,000 The overpaid: Guillen, by $8.875 million Olivo, by $375,000 Ramirez, by $675,000 Farnsworth, by $1.6 million Mahay, by $2.125 million Bale, by $350,000" * Please note that the opinions expressed regarding Willie Bloomquist by MORP do not represent those of Top Ramen.

Twins sign Joe Crede

1-year, $2.5 million base... the Willie Ballgame signing just keeps looking better and better!

Yeah, I know it's a bit old, and the wound has maybe just healed up. For some reason I just saw...

Royals

Yeah, I know it's a bit old, and the wound has maybe just healed up. For some reason I just saw this, and, well, I couldn't resist. Sorry. If you want one that targets another team/GM and is even funnier, click here.
