So Baltimore signing a guy with a QO is great for KC... as it moves them up from No. 18 to No. 17 in the draft order.

Now, just need someone to sign Santana... and get a pick in that comp round.

If Santana ends up signing 4/48 or 4/50, I understand the reticence from the KC front office. It's if he lands somewhere on a 3 - or especially 2 - year deal, that's when it really stings.

Riyals are projected to have the best defense in MLB in 2014.

1. ROYALS
The turnaround of the Royals' pitching staff in general, and Ervin Santana in particular, was a great story last season, but it wouldn't have been possible without the backing of one of the best defenses in the game.

The Royals led the Majors in defensive runs saved, and the reason why is pretty simple, really: They don't have a defensive weakness at any position. That's why they're No. 1 here. Shortstop Alcides Escobar and catcher Salvador Perez are among the best at their premier positions, and Alex Gordon is unmatched in left field. Omar Infante was a nice pickup for second base. The Royals just need this group to hit as well as it fields and they'll be ready to take that next step into October.

I'm sorry if Q but ESPN has a headline thing on the MLB tab of their website... it's title...
"Royals: Playoffs?"

Basically the read is talking about how we upgraded our offense this season which is a key point for our success this season. 31% odds of making it to playoffs with 23% playing in a divisional series.

Thanks for the clarification.

How does this work for a team like the Yankees that signs multiple "Qualifying Offer" free agents? They signed Brian McCann (12/02/2013), Jacoby Ellsbury (12/03/2013), and Carlos Beltran (12/19/2013).

They lost Robinson Cano (12/09/2013) to Seattle and Curtis Granderson (12/09/2013) to the Mets.

I assume NYY lost their 1st round pick when they signed McCann. Atlanta would then get a comp pick after the 1st round. NYY sign Ellsbury and give up a 2nd round pick? Does Boston get a comp pick after the 1st round? Seattle* signs Robinson Cano, so now instead of NYY giving up a 2nd round pick they give up their Cano comp pick, which is higher. Mets* then sign Curtis Granderson, so Yankees get a comp pick. Then Yankees sign Carlos Beltran so they give up their comp pick.

So as long as the Yankees sign no more QOFAs they are down their 1st round draft pick.

If the Yankees sign Ervin Santana, do the Royals get an after 1st round comp pick and the Yankees give up a 2nd round pick?

Also didn't these new rules just start in 2013?

* Since Mets and Seattle were in the bottom 10, they only give up 2nd round pick.

The Yankees gained comp picks for Cano and Granderson and lost picks for signing Ellsbury, McCann and Beltran.

So they lose their first and both of the comp picks they got for their own FA. If they sign another FA, they will lose their second round pick.

March, I believe, but I'm not 100% sure on that.

Edited: Checked Royals.com, and it says "Single Game Tickets will be on sale Saturday, March 1 at 10:00 a.m. (CT)."

Maybe a clue in why Florida Marlins claimed and then released Jimmy Paredes. After they claimed him, he played winter ball in the Dominican League and batted .176 in 20 games and 68 at bats.

Baltimore only kept him for 2 days. Not sure why they bothered.

Maybe give him a chance in Omaha and see if he can do anything.
