Since our last post a week and a half ago, the Royals have signed free agents Brian Lawrence and Brett Tomko, re-signed Jimmy Gobble, agreed to arbitration deals with John Buck, Jorge De La Rosa and Ross Gload, invited Hideo Nomo and Angel Berroa to spring training, DFAed Brandon Duckworth, and begun their Winter Caravan. Besides that, nothing. And that's why I'm taking a break.
(Santa Monica last weekend, Tempe this weekend. Big props to anyone who can guess the reason for this trip.)
IDWT will return in February, when pitchers and catchers report.
