Anyone feel like the Royals should have gone after Magglio?

What did the Tigers see that no other team regarding Magglio's knee?

The contract he signed sounded like the Tigers have themselves covered in case his knee isn't ready to go (Tigers can void if he is on the DL for more than 25 days).

I feel like he's the one outfield free agent we should have attempted to sign.

For the money i don't think Ordonez was worth it, instead we should have gone after Jose Guillen who hit over 30 homers last year, and would have been a lot cheaper then maggs.

I too, agree that Guillen would have been better, But Guillen has been with the Nationals for quite some time, Ordonez was still a free agent at least 7 to 10 days ago (he was the last decent corner outfielder still available at the time).

Time to face the facts, it's going to be another long year for the boys in blue!

It has been setting up to be a long year for quite some time now, I don't think the addition of Mags would change that too much. If the rotation stays healthy and is able to build on the talent they have then saving some money to make a serious push next season is a great idea. If the Hernandez, Gobble, Greinke, and Wood are stagnant/regress (or god forbid deal with another year of injury) then this is shaping up to be a waste of a season.

What kind of elbow room does KC have with their purse strings?

Seems to me like a Maggs type deal would be way to expensive for KC.

Truthfully, this club needs to invest in their farm system and try to build from the inside - thats how they are going to be better - not by wasting money on FAs.
