Wow, demoted from the Royals to AA? That's bad...

Really really bad.

Actually, I read a quote where Royals' GM Allard Baird said this shouldn't be taken as a demotion. :-?
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'

No I'm not pissed at all. I love playing straight leagues and would never consider playing a mixed league. I only meant I had kept him on roster all year because in straight leagues you don't have a lot of options.

Sorry about that. I guess I am bad at sensing anger through the computer. :-/

But I have to ask, why will you only play in AL or NL only leagues?

And as for Berroa - the Royals to Double A, damn that is bad.
