And they were right.

(Full disclosure: Given the Royals' dearth of 1B options, I thought Kila deserved a full shot, and was intrigued by his MiL plate patience and power. And I was wrong.)
That's very true. But the fact is that he did put up big numbers in the minors, and Myers has really only had one big year in the minors.

For what it's worth, I expect Myers to be a much better player than Kila. But you never know. I thought Eric Hosmer would hit a lot more than .232 last year too.
