as much as i was kinda surprised when i read the boston dirt dogs feed from a few days ago (how the sox were considering trading lowell), i started thinking and part of me remembered that before last season, alex had signed a 1-year contract with the royals. needless to say, i put two and two together and discovered that this has a very slight chance of working (at least in the world of mandachan where everything works out to my advantage. after all, 2 + 2 does equal 4 :D). of course, the royals need to be willing to give up alex, which i don't really see happening (he's one of their best players), but they wouldn't have a problem filling the spot (they have teahen and seven bajillion 1B-OF who could play position musical chairs). that would make my life as a divided loyalty fan a LOT easier, though.
just thinking out loud.
