Jonathon Sanchez for Jeremy Guthrie. (Change of scenery trade, if you ask me)

Yea, I saw where Sanchez was DFA earlier this week. I am the least surprised person that he tanked once he got out of the friendly confines of the NL West. However, Colorado is certainly making a puzzling move here. Walking guys and poor command is a death sentence at Coors.

What we've got right here is a mutual dead parrot trade...

O: We're closin' for lunch.

C: Never mind that, my lad. I wish to complain about this parrot what I purchased not half an hour ago from this very boutique.

O: Oh yes, the, uh, the Norwegian Blue...What's,uh...What's wrong with it?

C: I'll tell you what's wrong with it, my lad. 'E's dead, that's what's wrong with it!

O: No, no, 'e's uh,...he's resting.

C: Look, matey, I know a dead parrot when I see one, and I'm looking at one right now.

O: No no he's not dead, he's, he's restin'! Remarkable bird, the Norwegian Blue, idn'it, ay? Beautiful plumage!

C: The plumage don't enter into it. It's stone dead.

O: Nononono, no, no! 'E's resting!

As a Royals fan I'm glad they got something for Sanchez and Guthrie is more than I expected! At least he has some talent. Hopefully a change of scenery will help him, plus getting out of Coors and into a park that is a bit pitcher friendly.

Guthrie sounded absolutely thrilled to be out of Coors in his interview with MLB today.

That place really, really affects some guys.

Reminds me a bit of Ed Whitson in Yankee pinstripes back in the mid-80's.

:lol: That and "Who's on First" are two routines that will NEVER get old.
