Since the Royals are still up, I may as well pass this along now.

Run, don’t walk, to Call To The Pen and read Wally’s epic on Willie Bloomquist, mistakes, and the legend of Boomquist.

I don’t mean to pick on the man.  I really don’t.  He did a lot with limited talent, and at least tried hard.  But I agree that his contributions were highly overrated and could have been provided by any bevy of minor league or replacement level (i.e., league minimum) talent.

Bloomquist was traded from the Royals to the Reds last Monday.
