Royals Release Esteban German

The Royals tried to trade Esteban German, but were unable to, so they released him.

A couple of years ago, the Royals thought German may be the second baseman of the future. He has a great career OBP. He could play several positions in a pinch. And he worked hard. In fact, at times over the past few seasons, German looked like he cared more than most of the players who have come through Kansas City.

Unfortunately, the Royals had nowhere to put him this season. Although, if it were up to me, I would have found a way to keep German and get rid of Tony Pena Jr.

They can't get rid of Pena, because then Moore has to admit it was a mistake trading for him, and keeping him on the roster.

And I think we're all starting to find out that Moore doesn't make mistakes. At least, in his mind.
