About that right handed bat.
I think there is enough out on the market to fill what Piniella wants. The Royals want to trade Reggie Sanders....he's not an everyday player but can still hit the lefties. Julio Franco is also out and availible. If neither one of those guys is picked up then there should be other players availible.
