About The Author

In the summer of 1997 a ten year old boy listened to his first baseball game. He had no connection to baseball besides a glove and a couple cards, but from that point on it was his obsession. Some people are raised Royals fans, others are just born fans. Never seen a winner, but keeping the dream alive one blog at a time.

    Wrong post to comment this on, but thought it would go. Small Sample Size for Navarro in AAA, but I would say he is the one to get on the 40 man. He is younger, plays SS pretty well, and has hit decently at each level. Falu, Abreu, and Getz are all older, and probably not as good defensively at SS as Navarro. Thoughts??
