Quintero I get and don't care about. But as a baseball fan and a fantasy baseball player, WTF use do you guys have for Jason Bourgeois? All you've done is taken a guy that was a legitimate threat to steal 90 bases and make him a bench player. That guy was badass to watch.

If he got on 1st, and for the most part he did a nice job of that - BOOM - stolen base attempt.

Now he's just going to be a bench player, unless the Royals are going to consider trying him at 2b, where he played a few games last year (in which case, that would be super badass).
From MLB trade rumors:

"Bourgeois posted a .294/.323/.357 line with 31 stolen bases last year, while playing all three outfield positions and appearing at second base. The 30-year-old will be arbitration eligible for the first time after the 2012 season."

Agree it would be pretty badass if they're planning to give him a shot at 2B. I guess that's where he came up/has the most experience. This also gives them some insurance if Cain doesn't hit once the season starts (all indications are that he will).
