Transaction of the day

Jan 4, 2010, 5:15 PM EDT

MLB Trade Rumors passes this one along:

The Royals signed lefty John Parrish to a minor league
deal, according to a team press release.  Parrish, 32, missed all of
’09 with a shoulder injury . . . He has not had success
against lefties in recent years.

Hurt lefty who can’t get lefties out?

Go Royals!

    The KC Royals: Lobotomy redefined.

  2. Anders C. - Jan 4, 2010 at 5:39 PM

    its the royals. what do you expect

    Gee, both the Mets and the Royals turned their attention to pitching…and look how well it’s progressing.
    Wouldn’t be surprised if there had been a bidding war between the Royals and the Mets for this future HOF pitcher. (She says as she continues to bang her head against the wall.)

    Hey you scoffers! The empire is being built one brick at a time. It’s all part of my boy’s master plan.

    Eh, it’s officially called depth. The O-Royals were more dinged up than the KC club last season. He also probably had ties to bench coach (former Toronto manager) John Gibbons, so he’s getting a shot. The only pitcher on the market still that really has much intrigue IMO is Bedard.

    you dont call it an empire if they conquer nothing. its a 10 man village where the big empires stop for bath room breaks while laughing at because its not even worth conquering and unless this village is building a nuclear bomb they arent going anywhere anytime soon

    They don’t need a baseball team. They have Bird’s plastic saxophone from the Massey Hall concert in the jazz museum out there, and they’ve got Lucky Wesley on bass. That’s plenty for one cow town.

    Don’t blame the town because it got stuck with an owner who cares nothing about winning. Any Kansas Citian would like to trade David Glass for a new mascot and six pack of Bud, well a mascot anyway. Remember when Ewing Kaufman owned this team, they drew nearly three million fans every year. His death, and the death of the franchise, mirror each other.

    Why all the hate over a minor league transaction? All clubs make these sorts of deals over the winter. These fringy guys are organizational fodder. Why do the Royals get so much scrutiny for it when other teams similar transactions are ignored?
