Working on a Semi-Irregular Post

but I swear I'm working on it. I got sidetracked writing this. The Royalscentricity entry should be finished tomorrow evening and up on Friday. Until then...

  • At AL Central In Focus, Corey Ettinger lays out the payroll situation in an easy-to-read format for the Royals going forward. As we all know the only money the Royals have guaranteed
  • The Royals are apparently interested in signing John Maine to a minor-league contract. I have to say there would be very little to complain about if they did, as it is low-risk, non-guaranteed contract that gives them a guy who has been a legitimate back-end-of-the-rotation starter at the Major League level if things go to hell in a hand-basket.
  • Keep an eye on Drunk Jays Fans tonight as their initial reaction to the 5-year, $65MM deal sums it up pretty well--"Holy shit, that's way too much." Add that to the prospect of having to look at Scott Podsednik, who was signed to a minor-league deal today, and it's a huge news day for Toronto. The Bautista post has been growing as I type this.
  • ...And Jason Kendall has Craig Brown at Royals Authority (and everyone else, really) scared. Goddamn him (Kendall, not Brown).

Yeah the Kendall thing really has me scared too.If he's all the sudden"healthy" it could fuck things up in a big way, don't trust the process when it contains this shit,

Our collective concern is justified.
