I Learned It By Watching You!!!*

Many here in Kansas City voiced their outrage this week that the Royals have stooped to sign Jose Guillen, a purported user of performance-enhancing drugs, and thus a destroyer of our sacred national pastime -- now brought to you in HD by Levitra, Coors Light and Starbucks -- and a ruiner of thousands of golden-lit father-son moments.

However, if you look closer, you find that Dayton Moore is not to blame, nor even Guillen himself. Rather, the font of evil by Lake Erie is to blame.

Consider the following:

Jose Guillen played with Alex Escobar for the 2006 Washington Nationals and Alex Escobar played with Rafael Betancourt for the 2003 Cleveland Indians.

Jose Guillen played with Rick White for the 2000 Tampa Bay Devil Rays and Rick White played with Rafael Betancourt for the 2004 Cleveland Indians.

Jose Guillen played with Nick Bierbrodt for the 2001 Tampa Bay Devil Rays and Nick Bierbrodt played with Rafael Betancourt for the 2003 Cleveland Indians.

Jose Guillen played with Scott Sauerbeck for the 1999 Pittsburgh Pirates and Scott Sauerbeck played with Rafael Betancourt for the 2005 Cleveland Indians.

Jose Guillen played with Mark Little for the 2002 Arizona Diamondbacks and Mark Little played with Rafael Betancourt for the 2004 Cleveland Indians.

Jose Guillen played with Jason Davis for the 2007 Seattle Mariners and Jason Davis played with Rafael Betancourt for the 2003 Cleveland Indians.

And as you know...

And lets not even mention Paul Byrd. Clearly it is a Game of Shadows buuuaaaa scary!!
