One More Go 'Round for Beltran

The Royals signed Carlos Beltran to a 1-year deal today avoiding arbitration. He'll get $9M, up from $6M from last year. I think its a great signing and shows, as expected, that the Royals are aiming at the division title in 2004. Of course, if he signs with another team after the season the Royals will get two draft picks. The Royals have also signed Mendy Lopez to fill the backup role. So here's the depth chart:

1B - Harvey, Stairs
2B - Relaford, Graffanino
SS - Berroa, Graffanino
3B - Randa, Graffanino
RF - Guiel, Stairs
CF - Beltran, Rich Thompson (obtained in the Rule 5 draft)
LF - Gonzales, Thompson
C - Santiago, Stinnet
DH - Sweeney, Harvey

UT - Lopez

SP - Anderson, May, Asencio, Appier, Snyder
RP - Affeldt, MacDougal, Leskanic, Grimsely, Sullivan, Carrasco

The Royals also signed Kris Wilson a while back although I'm not sure where he fits into the big picture.
