Kevin has a nice review of the Royals' horror show outfield today. I reviewed the outfield a few days ago with a similar take. I can't even share Kevin's wary optimism about Nunez, though, because I simply don't think he's a major league caliber outfielder. I think Marrero will hit well, and I'd like the trade a lot if he were given a shot to win the left field job outright (and the team may yet do so, so I don't want to count chickens just yet). But I can't understand the logic of bringing in a $2.5 million, 31 year-old outfielder for the express purpose of platooning on this ballclub. Doesn't make any financial sense to me.
