Free Calvin Pickering
I know, I know... its December... and the answer was from a reporter, not a Royals official... but still... this is just not cool:

"Do you think Calvin Pickering fits into the Royals' plans for next season? -- Melissa M., St. Mary's City, Md.

Pickering can crush the ball, as his seven home runs in 35 games for the Royals and his 35 homers in 89 games for Triple-A Omaha attest. However, the Royals view him primarily as a designated hitter and not a first baseman. They already have Mike Sweeney and Ken Harvey for those spots, so look for Pickering to be at Omaha as a fallback in case either one of those players is injured again. "

Seriously, not cool. What exactly has Ken Harvey done to deserve this unquestioned role!?!? Well, its not like we didn't fear this would happen anyway, and theres always the chance that Swen-vey gets hurt... Nevertheless... FREE CALVIN PICKERING!
