Good luck to him, he was a great guy, I think a lot of Royals fans waaaay overvalued his ability, but that happens I guess.

Good guy. I hope he has one or two good years in him and gets to go out on a high note.

Good guy, but this proves he has very little value in the market. He'll be battling Ryan Freel and Austin Kearns for time at 3B. So he's going to a sub-par team, and will have to compete for playing time. I hope he finishes his career on his terms...

Great guy, solid third baseman. Hate to see him go, but I won't be losing any sleep over it.

Looking at his stats does not seem like a great loss.

Good guy, solid player for us for a lot of years. Best of luck to him.

For most all of those years you couldn't ask for a better glove at 3B, underappreciated IMO

If we were losing his fielding percentage at second or short, it'd be a big loss, but his numbers at the plate are sub-average for a corner infielder.

Great guy, I wish him all the luck and success at Cinci.

He is the Tom Brady of baseball, except he has not won a championship or been on a good team... But great leader and person...

Pardon me if I find that comparison ridiculous for the very reasons you cite in your post.:rolleyes:

He was probably my favorite Royal. Good luck Joe!!

Say it ain't so, Joe.


We'll miss his glove. But he has had a pretty pedestrian career as a Royal.

yeah, he was just like George Brett, except for the MVP's, Batting titles and World Series Ring!

Brett couldn't play 3rd near as well. Greg Pryor was the one who helped George become an adequate 3rd baseman.

At any rate -- I hate to see a class guy go, but I hope for all the best for him and his family.

Sometimes there's more than stats. He was a helluva defensive 3rd baseman, a solid, reliable, if not spectacular bat and a great influence on the teams kids. Not to mention he has no ego.
