    Singleton actually had a good season last year (albeit as 26 year old in AA). I considered him a bit of a post-hype sleeper. Shame that he's back to square one again.

    Man I was so in on Singleton back in the day. What a dumb guy. Hopefully he saved his bonus.
    I'm sure someone who can't help themselves with a substance also has the control to be fiscally responsible.

    His line in AA last year as a 26 year old was .205/.376/.397. Kat - you must be looking at his 2012 season in AA...

    He ran a 120 wRC+, which is not impressive for a 26 year old at his third go-around in AA, but it is 20% above the league average. Slash lines are deceiving, you have to take into account the run environment that he's in.

    I left that out for effect Org...I'll cherry pick whenever I damn well please!

    But seriously...not impressive for a 26 year old in AA. His career is done.

    A few people predicted he would sign with the Royals

    Royals Sign Ryan Goins To Minor League Deal
    By Steve Adams | January 24, 2018 at 3:18pm CDT
    The Royals announced that they’ve signed infielder Ryan Goins to a minor league contract and invited him to Major League Spring Training. Goins is a client of Octagon.
    Goins, 29, has spent the past half decade as a reserve infielder for the Blue Jays, appearing in 449 contests and coming to the plate a total of 1397 times at the big league level. He’s never been much of an asset at the plate, however, batting a combined .228/.275/.335 with 20 homers and six steals in that time. To Goins’ credit, he did hit a career-best nine homers last year, though that small spike in a power came during a historically high home-run environment for Major League Baseball.
    While Goins isn’t a big threat at the plate, he’s been an asset in the field over his first five big league campaigns. Defensive Runs Saved credits him as an above-average shortstop and a superlative defender at second base (+6 in 1362 innings and +24 in 1870 innings, respectively). Ultimate Zone Rating, meanwhile, feels he’s been roughly average at shortstop and nine runs above average at second base. Goins also has limited big league experience at third base, first base and in both outfield corners, though he’s totaled fewer than 50 innings at each of those positions.
    Toronto non-tendered Goins earlier this*winter in his first offseason of arbitration eligibility. If he makes the Royals’ roster and the team likes what it sees, he can be retained for at least the 2019 and 2020 campaigns via*arbitration.

    He should fit in nicely there. Seems like a Ned Yost kind of player.

    This reminds me that while doing a speech at Winterfest, Stro was talking about how Goins misses the Jays fans and how they traveled together and sucked each other off all offseason.
