Royals throw $11 million dollars in the toilet by signing Alex Rios

The Kansas City Royals have signed Alex Rios to an $11 million deal. While this deal rivals the Braves giving Nick Markakis $44 million over four seasons it is at-least not that bad because Rios will be earning just 25% of what Markakis will. I have often shyed away from saying that players are a waste of money but that is exactly how I feel about both Markakis and Rios. Rios, soon...
