|Moore won’t rule out the possibility of offering arbitration to veteran second baseman Mark Grudzielanek, who filed last week for free agency. |
“I wouldn’t say that,” Moore warned. “There are some other things that we might have in the works. I can’t make that decision until it’s time to make it.”
Only three AL second baseman (min. 400 PAs) had a higher OBP than Callaspo's .361 - Brian Roberts (.378), Dustin Pedroia (.376), and Ian Kinsler (.375). Now I'm not suggesting that he is in their class because he's not, they are the three top second baseman in the AL. But if he can maintain that OBP over a full season then he would be a notch below them.
Kansas City has some pressing needs with a run producing corner outfielder & a starting pitcher the top two but KC seems set at shortstop and second base and maybe it's time Dayton Moore figured that out.
