Royals DFA Jose Guillen - It's Kila Time in KC

31

Happy to see this news just now. As much as I wanted the Cubs to take a buy low flier on Kila Ka'aihue, I also really just want to see the kid succeed. This move appears to open up the playing time for him to get regular at bats in KC for the rest of the season. He may still be obtainable over the winter though, so I'll be keeping a close eye on him. Kansas City is a team everyone loves to hate, and I've been in on that for the past two years or so, but I've always really liked the team (the unis, the stadium, the history), and I'm really happy to see them going forward with a full blown youth movement, and they actually have quite a few reasons to be optimistic about the future. Edit: just so there's no confusion, he was DFA'd, and not simply put on waivers, presumably to just get him off the roster.
