Just thought that I should let you guys know that Kevin Kouzmanoff (finally) got signed by the Kansas City Royals for a minor league contract with an invitation to Spring Training last week. It isn’t much, but at least he did get signed. I was getting a little worried there.
Though I would have preferred that he got signed by the Padres, at least he is going to be playing. In Triple-A Omaha. But whatever.
Also, Jan. 16 was the two-year anniversary of his trade from the Padres to the Oakland A’s. That was such a sad day. I can’t believe it’s been two years already. Thankfully, I did get to go see him in August when he was with the Rockies. That was the coolest game ever.
I’m just happy that my boy is still in baseball and still doing the best he can. He hasn’t had an easy career, that’s for sure, but he’s fighting hard. I love him 🙂
Unfortunately, the Padres won’t be playing the Royals in Interleague this season, so I won’t get to see him at all. But hopefully next year, when he gets traded back to the Padres. Right Padres? Right. Sounds good.
Yeah, I saw that when I was looking at the Royals’ transactions over the winter and thought it was a mistake. It’s a shame that he has dropped so far.
