Sending Alex Gordon to Omaha for No Apparent Reason
I was having trouble filling this list, but the Royals sure did help me out...
Yes there was no APPARENT reason to send him down. Sure he had been struggling at the plate, he had just come off major surgery, etc, etc. But the real reason this happened is WAL-MART. The Royals trying to skim a few dollars off the top, by sending Alex Gordon down to Omaha to save a few bucks. Currently, Alex Gordon is 13 games away from being arbitration eligible. With this move, the Royals now control Alex Gordon through 2013. Funny part is, that if he wasn't called up for the start of the 2007 season (which he SHOULDN'T have been), the Royals wouldn't have this problem.
