Excellent signing by Baird, the team desperately needed someone who can provide some power and, even more important, hold their own against lefties. If he can remain relatively healthy $5 million per for 2 seasons is a very solid gamble.


L CF DeJesus
R 2B Grudzielanek
R DH Sweeney
R LF Sanders
L RF Stairs
R SS Berroa
L 3B Teahan
R C Buck
L 1B Mientkiewicz


With Brown and Guiel being able to platoon into the RF/LF spots to give Sanders/Stairs a break or games at DH while Sweeney snags a few games at 1B, Bell has a ton more options than he did when he took over the team last season.

Sanders is a decen tplayer, but this does not help his fantasy value for sure.

Why not? He'll be in a favorable spot in the lineup and at least has guaranteed playing time.

Umm... Are we talking about the same Reggie? He's not guaranteed playing time unless he stays healthy, and that's a big unless.

2/$10M, huh? Can someone let me know why the Cards wouldn't get in on him at that price? Doesn't seem too high to me, and we need the outfielder. There's not a third-year player option like Grudz's contract, is there?

They didn't want to go 2 years with Reggie's age and injury history.

Good signing by the Royals. Sanders gives them something they really need, despite the injury concerns.

I must be misremembering, because I thought they didn't want to go three years. Maybe I'm confusing him and Grudz...

I'm actually surprised it didn't cost the Royals more to have him sign there. Quite a few teams are looking for outfield help so I thought it might have driven his price tag up. I think 2 years at 5 mil is a gamble considering his health, but if he is healthy - great value. I wonder what teams like the Cards and Cubs will be doing for outfielders now...
