A Plea to the Royals' Braintrust

Please leave Alberto Callaspo at third base, and play Getz or Aviles at second. Third is a read and reaction position, with much less involvement with infield play and cutting off throws from the outfield. Also a third baseman has less responsibility for infield pop ups.

Alex Gordon? May be done, a first round bust. Or convert him to first base after Billy Butler becomes the full time DH after Gullen's contract is up. Any way you shake it, the less I see of Callaspo at second base, the happier I'll be.

The reason you find a place for Callaspo: He can hit for average, has some power and can drive in runs. (Kansas City Star)
