Let's Get Ourselves a Former Cub!

The Royals DFA'd Todd Wellemeyer today.  He's been atrocious so far this year and has never established himself at the big league level, but for some reason, I like him.  He's a power arm (152 K's in 176 big-league innings) and I'll bet Mike Maddux could harness the beast.

Best of all, the Royals owe us: we gave them Ben Hendrickson and Jorge de la Rosa.  (Okay, okay, JDLR wasn't free.)  I hereby submit a trade offer to Dayton Moore: minor league pitcher Max St. Pierre for Todd Wellemeyer.  Get 'er done!
