Re: Royals on the verge of acquiring James Shields and Wade Davis from the Rays
Kaufman would be good for him. It suppresses HRs, but is a great 2Bs and 3Bs field considering I think it has the most area in the OF of all ML stadiums (including Coors and Comerica). Plus, he can cover some ground and would be a much better defender than Francouer. He's only 28. He's an Iowa boy, a Xavier grad. I would love to see him with the Royals, but hope he does well wherever he ends up.
