HA

That's awesome. I'm not offended at all so it kinda loses any punch. What'd they think, I was going to cry and listen to my Tito Puente albums until two in the morning?

Yuppers.  Vargas signed with the Mets and Hosmer with the Padres.

Yup.  It was inevitable that the team would be broken up and reserve its place at the bottom of the division.

Was KC willing to overpay to keep them together?  Other teams were willing to overpay for KC's free agents b/c they'd been losing so much for so long...

KC ownership stated they were trying to cut the payroll to around $110 million this season.  That pretty much excluded signing any of their free agents.
