Wonder why the Cards didn't make an offer. Spivey has looked terrible, according to redbirds' people.

on another note- i struck out on foul balls in my softball league the other day. i was so upset by it that i actually contemplated leaving the league(little over the top, i know).

can you imagine letting a ball roll through your legs in the playoffs?!

that's got to put a damper on your career.

In Chicago and Boston, that's all he's ever going to be known for. As soon as he bucknered that ball, his fate was sealed.

Some network really needs to do a reality show with Graffanino, Buckner and Bartman all living in the same house.

Now comes the fun of seeing where the Royals trade him this trading deadline.

Coming from the commissioner's office, may it be known that the New York Yankees have traded CF Johnny Damon to Kansas City for Tony Graffanino in order to re-gain a part of their home-grown talent.

HaHa, I did the same thing one day. I'm sure my foul out was worse as it was a little dinker that hit the ground 3 feet from the plate and spun foul. However, I made up for it by scoring from second to win the game in extra innings after the following batter hit a double and I pinch ran for him as I'm much faster.

I've never seen his name butchered as badly as it is in this thread's title.

That's not even close. :cool:

Wonderful, now Graff is back in the AL Central.:(: It's never a good thing when a .300 hitter rejoins a division rival. Oh well. Y'know, position player wise, the Royals have improved themselves this offseason. Graff, Mark Grudzielanek, Reggie Sanders, Doug Mientkiewicz join Matt Stairs and Mike Sweeney. That's a lot more veteran talent than the AAAA version of the Royals we faced last year. Scott Elarton, Mark Redman, and Joe Mays will anchor an improved rotation. The Royals will still probably finish in last place but I don't think they will be the pushovers they were last year. Definitely not a 100 loss team anymore.

The biggest change on the Royals will be their improved defense, especially on the right side of the infield. That pitching is still really bad though. You're right, it's not a 100 loss team, but it may still be a 90 loss team.

Even though they mostly lost I thought they played the white sox very tough last season. A lot of very close games.

Anyway, within two months most of those guys are probably on the DL.
