Frenchy Yost and Melk

So as I know, you already know, the Royals have signed Jeff Francoeur to a 1 year $2.5m dollar one year fling with a mutual option for 2012 if both sides hit it off. Not a surprise at all as 99.687 percent of Royals fans knew this day was looming, the only real shocker is that it didn't happen sooner. I mean we all knew this was coming folks. I guess the real shocker is Jeff Francoeur is still only going to be 27 and is actually younger then Zack Greinke as shocking as that sounds, considering he's been "loved" in Atlanta, New York, and Texas. And when it comes to guys with career OBP of .310 you can do worse right ?

Now for the Yost part of the blog post, in case you happened to miss it in yesterday's Star. Ned Yost had this to say:
“Next year is the (true) beginning of the process,” he said. “We’re another year closer to getting those kids ready to being in the big leagues. It’s going to be a pivot

So those of you who've been trusting the process for the last couple of years....

You were trusting in something that hadn't even started yet.

And since I'm lazy and didn't get this posted yesterday.....
The Royals have almost reached a one year deal with Melky Cabrera on a one year $1.25m deal. Which means it looks like it may be the end of the line for Alex Gordon and or Mitch Maier in Kc.

Finally in keeping with the innuendos of earlier in the Rule 5 draft today the Royals selected (to) Adcock, Nate a right-handed pitcher from the Pirates organization. But the Rule 5 draft was somewhat bitter sweet as we say goodbye to one season phenom Rowdy Hardy who was selected by the Braves in the AAA phase.
