German released

Royals released Esteban German today after he cleared waivers I would have thought he could have at least garnered a PTBNL.
German in his Royal career played in 316 games, 843 AB, 236 Hits, 47 2Bs, 14 3Bs, 7 HRs, 93 RBI, 25 SB's, held a .279 AVG and walked an amazing 101 times !!!
He truly was a Royal legend

What are the odds on J.R. House ?
Not that he'll make the team but that he'll get a hit this spring before being shipped to minor league camp ? Or even if he'll make the team without a springtime hit. As we all know ST stats are meaningless.....
LaRue anyone ???

Rotation Wars
Bannister was roughed up by the Cubs today so that bods well for Hochevar.
But why ?
Bannister should have a rebound year and Hoch the 1st OVERALL pick a few years ago has impressed me (except for a homerun surrendered to Chicken Little)and should be given a spot in the rotation. Yet the man crush on Horacio continues. Sure Horacio had bad fielding but bad fielding doesn't account for 15 Hits against Bannister's 8 and Hochevar's 6/

Will we ?
Will we see Oscar Villarreal or Victor Marte pitch this Spring ?
