The lefty from Florida? The Royals drafted him in 09 or 10 I think.

Nice little deal.

Quintero is servicable, better than the other options the Royals have behind Perez.

And Bourgeois is a good speed and on-base guy....could be the end of the road for Maier and Dyson which I don't hate.

Huh? Bourgeois is a 30-year-old fifth outfielder who boasts a career .307 OBP in the majors.

I guess I'm wrong about the OBP...I thought he was higher than that.

I still think he's better than either Dyson or Maier.

Dyson plays plus-plus defense and is nearly un-throw-outtable (sorry) on the basepaths. In the AL, I think he's a more valuable fourth outfielder than Bourgeois or Maier.

Dyson is a plus in the outfield, I'd agree with that.

But Bourgeois is just as good on the base-paths, and I think overall a better hitter than Dyson.

I'm really no fan of Maier....never have been. But I don't think they'd keep both Dyson and Bourgeois instead of Maier, just because he's a left handed bat.

Which I think is wrong and dumb, but I guess we'll see.

This deal should have been Quintero for a PTBNL.

Don't get why the Royals would have any interest in Borgeois. And now I'm fearing who the PTBNL is.

That is interesting....seems like him and Dyson are quite similiar to terms of their skill-set.

Quintero has more value than a PTBNL. I wouldn't be surprised if this marks the end of the road for B. Pena once Perez comes back.

I think you are undervaluing Dyson.

I don't know. Astros are making it sound like the PTBNL was the key to the deal.

Very rarely is the PTBNL the key to any deal, but I guess that could be the case here.

Would be awfully surprised if it's any kind of legit prospect.

Well, it could be a Royals 2011 draftee. Obviously wouldn't be Starling.
