See ya Travis Metcalf

Travis Metcalf was claimed today by the Kansas City Royals. It’s a shame he got out, as I really think he deserved a shot to be our starting 3B in 2009. He was squeezed out in a 40 man roster situation, not too dissimilar to the way that Doug Davis was squeezed out a few years back.
Hopefully he gets some real time to play with the Royals. Nice guy, hope he does well.
We also signed Esteban German back in a counter move. German played some backup for us back in 2005.
