Royals Bag Santiago

Well, the Royals got their catcher. $4.3M over two years is a hefty price to pay for a 38 year old and there is a good chance this deal won't look very good next year. Still, the last 2 years have been Santiago's best since 1996 and if he can hit in the high .270s then he'll certainly be above replacement level.

His percentage throwing out runners suffered a bit last year so I hope that's not a portent of things to come (although at 38 I wouldn't blame him). He also had 1 more PB, 7 less DPs, and 1 more error in 160 fewer innings.
