The Royals signed Zach Miner to a minor league deal this morning, which is not a bad signing at all. It is also not an exciting deal by any stretch of the imagination.

The most interesting part of this signing is that Miner was part of a deadline deal between Atlanta and Detroit. On July 31, 2005, Miner along with ROMAN COLON was traded by Atlanta to the Tiger for KYLE FARNSWORTH.

Pretty clearly, the Royals have totally won that 2005 trade.
