Is Burgos back in the closer role?
D-Mat, Schilling, Beckett, and Papelbon - Wow!

Why do you say that? We're talking about a soon to be 30 year old reliever who's barely pitched on the big club the last two years due to injury. The Royals received two nice starting pitching prospects, of which they have very few currently in the minors. I think it's a very good trade.

we are talking about Ambiorix being the closer again, and that's not a good thing!

Yeah, Burgos closing the rest of 2006 may stifle their playoff hopes... ;-7

I like the deal. MacDougal was worth more to another team and KC got some decent players with more potential to help in a few years. Burgos closes till they find someone else, no big deal. Burgos is still very young. If Sisco wasn't lefty I think he would have closed a long time ago. I've heard that KC might move the lefty power arm that is Sisco to the rotation and possibly Bautista to the pen. Whats the word and Bautista...he still projected as a starter? Greinke should be back soon and I like how Duckworth is pitching even though KC can't score runs for him. It'd be a good idea to trade Redman as well since he's a FA.

Greinke
Duckworth
Madritsch
Hernandez
Sisco/Bautista

not great but cheap and mostly homegrown
