Sanders pays Kansas City a visit

Free agent outfielder a possible fit for Royals

By Dick Kaegel / MLB.com

 

 

 

KANSAS CITY -- Free agent outfielder Reggie Sanders was in Kansas City on Wednesday morning for a visit with the Royals.

 

Other than acknowledging Sanders' visit, general manager Allard Baird would not comment.

 

Sanders could be the answer for a power-hitting corner outfielder that the Royals have sought for more than a year. At 37, however, he's not the younger version that the Royals would prefer.

 

"He was in yesterday and met with us and he's here this morning," Baird said, "and that's it."

 

The chances of signing Sanders?

 

"No idea," Baird said.

I would see a signing like this as a sign Delgado might be on his way out. Even though his production will not be replaced, Sanders could somewhat offset the losses for one season.

I hear ya, but I think a Sanders signing is incredibly unlikely. Even if it does happen, you could spin it either way.

His 4 million dollar contract last season (part of a 2 year / 6 mil deal) really broke the bank, let me tell you.

 

Willingham would put up comparable if not better starts for much, much cheaper. But if they don't give him a shot here's a good option. Not like they are going to actually put the money into the bullpen like they should.

Sanders is the streakiest hitter I have ever seen. I watched him all year in 2002, when he was with the Giants. He could have a week or two where he was tearing the cover off the ball, but then he'd get really cold for like a month. I'll keep Conine over Sanders any day...

Sanders is still a productive player and a fairly durable player, last year's injury being by and large a freak injury with age playing no part in it.

 

I'd love to have Reggie Sanders, but I'm not certain how he fits into our plans, unless there are defintiely other moves that are planned and/or Jeff Conine is not returning.

 

If Kansas City is really looking to make a splash then it makes a lot of sense for them.

I would think that if the trigger was pulled on Sanders than I would expect the team to have a major overhaul ... such as a Delgado trade

 

The guy is a sure bet to hit the crap out of the ball ... i dont care how old he is

 

 

Its just a rumour ... i think the team might be chatting it up about the usual suspects (delgado, lowell, pierre) more than Sanders

 

 

 

... at least he can hit
