Kinney In, Field and Tonis Out
Allard's digging through the scrap-heap continues, as the Royals claimed former Brewer Matt "They Killed!" Kinney off waivers today. As with just about everything Allard's done since the Beltran trade, I like the move. Kinney's numbers are at once largely unimpressive, but also better than many of the Royals internal options. Further, Kinney's been fairly well-regarded since his days in the Twins system. Sorta like former Royals Jeff Suppan and Chad Durbin, he's one of those guys that will probably never "get it", putting everything together and becoming a legitimate asset at the Major League level, but he'll keep getting chances because of his stature and (purported) stuff.

Anyway, in a roundabout way, this is the Rudy Seanez pickup with higher upside.
