The big Podsednik trade
The Royals traded Scott Podsednik to the Dodgers for two minor leaguers. Here's what the Royals got out of the deal:
Elisaul Pimentel: "Pimentel is a 21 year old pitcher who has been in A-ball. (B-R page) Pimentel has a 3.49 ERA this year, with good strikeout numbers."
Lucas May: " Lucas May / Luke May is a 25 year old catcher with an .848 this season in AAA."
It'll be interesting to see how this pans out.
Royals may not be done dealing
After making the Pods trade, GM Dayton Moore said:
"There may be a small deal or two we could do moving forward."
A "small deal" would indicate the Sorias, Greinkes and Butlers of the world aren't going anywhere.
Kyle Farnsworth anyone?

Chiefs sign three, waive one
The Chiefs signed two second round draft picks -- Dexter McCluster and Javier Arenas -- as well as free agent tight end Leroy Banks.
What makes the Banks signing interesting is that the Chiefs also waived Brad Cottam.
While they did waive him, it's more of a complicated process they must go through to keep him.

Mizzou QB Blaine Gabbert becoming a leader
People are listening to him...
"Blaine, he’s become more of a vocal leader," senior tailback Derrick Washington said. "He’s getting into people. He’s not letting little stuff go like he did last year. He’s telling people, ‘Catch the ball. Run your routes right.’ I like that about Blaine."
"People are listening to him," senior cornerback Kevin Rutland added. "I’m on defense and I’m a few years older than him, and I still find myself listening to him. I enjoy watching him command this team."
Good because that's how first round quarterbacks act. And he's a first round quarterback next April.
