Is the Royals outfield wide enough? Are the Royals throwing away their shot? Kansas City sure didn’t wait for it and went out and signed center fielder Billy Hamilton. It might be nice to have Hamilton on our side.
On top of that move, the Royals signed utility man Chris Owings, and carved out some space on the 40 man roster to make room for likely Rule 5 picks as they finish up a somewhat busy but curious Winter Meetings.
