The latest indignity:
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Kansas City Royals are attempting to sign Doug Mientkiewicz, the Gold Glove first baseman best known for taking the ball from the final out of Boston's World Series win in 2004.Why?
This makes no sense.
And save the Sweeney trade rumors which this seems a sign of. Trading Sweeney + overpaying for Minky still = bad bad deal.
I just don't see how Allard can be thinking this way, given what he's seen with his very eyes with guys like Ibanez, Emil, D.J. Carasco, etc. And in Minky's case, he's not just at a cheap to field decently position, he's actively not good.
What else is there to say?
I'm expecting three years $15 million at the least. Well, at least this way Doug can maybe enter the Hard to Spell Hall of Fame as a Royal.
