We first discovered this a year ago, but it’s nice to know Coors Field didn’t sap Jeremy Guthrie of his sense of humor.
Upon being traded to the Royals today, Guthrie immediately sought to endear himself to his new team’s fanbase:
I just told Dayton Moore on phone that the 1st player I would've chose for HR Derby would've been Billy Butler.—

Hopefully, Guthrie is able to rebound back in the AL after his miserable stint with the Rockies. Getting to work in a pitcher’s park in a mediocre division should do him a lot of good.
