Aviles and PrOPS

I thought about just adding a comment to the Aviles/Sickels thread, but as I think Mike Aviles will be the single most talked about person this off-season for RR, I wanted this to be a new post.   ...

Kyle Davies

13

with all this mike aviles love going around, I think another player is getting overlooked for his hot streak. in 4 starts this year, kyle davies has allowed 1, 1, 1, and 1 run. his walk rate is still high, and SO's are down a tad, but his hit rate is excellent and his overall strike% isn't terrible. still needs plenty more starts to really judge him, but he may be the hottest player on the team right now. take that crappy 27 year old ss's with lifetime ops+ of 174!!

berroa and salary

12

there was some debate over who paid the salary. Basically, everybody (ap, kc star, la times) all said royals picked up the salary, but the dodgers team site said differently. well, they amended it. "The Dodgers will be responsible for only the remaining pro-rated portion of the Major League minimum salary for Berroa, not the $3.5 million remaining from his multi-year contract, as earlier reported." royals got about .75 mil (buyout and pro rated min salary) and a crappy prosect for berroa
