Can't keep Ka'aihue down for that much longer, heck hes batting .324 with 24HR and a 1.070OPS at Triple-A, but even better is the 86-66 BB-K ratio hes sporting in the minors. Do we finally get to see Kila in the bigs?
Kila won't be up until either Guillen is traded or until after the deadline.
Very true, but the dealing of Pods definitely helps his situation, more so then hurting it at least. Also just saw this quote:
After trading OF Scott Podsednik to the Dodgers on Wednesday, Royals general manager Dayton Moore gave a hint of the team's long-term plans, particularly in regard to Triple-A slugger Kila Ka'aihue. "It's important for us to get Kila on our club, and we feel like that'll happen at some point very shortly," Moore told MLB.com. "I'm not saying it'll happen tomorrow, but we expect it to happen soon."
So either way KC is going to try to do everything to get him up as soon as at all possible, thats all I was thinking/saying.
