News out of the Twitterverse has Royals outfielder/DH Jose Guillen on a plane towards the West Coast, where he'll join up with his new team, the second place San Francisco Giants. The Giants will send the Royals some cash and a player to be named later, but really, they could send a polite thank-you note and the Royals would be totally cool just to have Guillen out of their sights. He's not a very nice person.
This move leaves the Giants with at least 37 designated hitters on their 40-man-roster, a pretty high number for a National League team. But I'm sure their weekend opponent, the first place Padres, will smile when they witness an outfield with Guillen and Pat Burrell manning the corners. With Aubrey Huff at first and Pablo Sandoval at third, it's almost as if San Fran is praying their opponents hit every ball up the middle.
