How does that help them?

He absolutely sucks. The scary thing is that KC's shortstops have been so bad that as much as Betancourt sucks, he still is an upgrade. If they gave up more than a bag of baseballs for him, though, they badly overpaid.

It's a precursor to their big Roy Halladay trade.

WOW!!...The Royals got robbed. They gave up Cortes in the deal? Their best SP prospect outside of Hochevar.

I fail to see how this helps them win the division this year. Makes no sense...

The only thing that coul match them is trading Cortes and other pitcher for Mike MacDougal.:(:

M's fans are pretty happy to see Yuni gone. He wasn't a team player and couldn't keep his head in the game. He was fun to watch when he played well, but even benching him didn't seem to faze him much.
