(1) KC doesn't get to trade him for anything.
(2) We'll be subjected to some pitchers even worse than Scotty.
And you know what that means:
And for his first heavyweight bout tonight, he faces fellow lardbutt Bartolo Colon.
All this matchup needs is Jason Whitlock as the guest umpire and we'd have three of the biggest men on the planet on the same field.
In other news, the trade deadline is only ten days away and the Royals should be involved in several deals. KC is receiving inquiries on Reggie Sanders, Tony Graffanino, Elmer Dessens, Mark Grudzielanek, and Mark Redman. Doubtful that Moore will trade all of these guys, but some will go and we'll have a cavalcade of new prospects to dream about.
But from mlbtraderumors.com comes the most exciting rumor for Royals fans yet:
Moore wants to unload Angel Berroa on the Rockies.
They sent us Neifi Perez a few years ago. If this deal goes down, I'll be a firm believer in karma.
I haven't mocked Berroa much in this blog. Honestly, there isn't much funny about the way he has played for KC since his Rookie of the Year season. Both offensively and defensively, he is at or near the bottom of the league in most every category. In fact, he currently is no better than a replacement player would be. He doesn't walk. He doesn't hit. He drops pop-ups. What exactly does Angel do well? Um, he gets hit by pitches an awful lot. He's fifth on the Royals all time list in that category. So I guess that's something.
This deal for Ryan Shealy seems too good to be true. Honestly, I'd trade Angel for a warm case of Kokanee.
Whether or not KC gets someone as good as Shealy, let's just hope that very soon we can refer to Berroa as a former Royal.
Let's also hope that at some point, we can refer to Runelvys in that manner too.
Go Royals! You're the Best!
