Pair of farmhands make BA's All-Star team

Baseball America named its post-season all-star squad today and a pair of Royals made the team. As no surprise, Kila Ka'aihue was named to the first-team as a DH. KK slugged 37 homers and hit .313 between AA Northwest Arkansas and AAA Omaha this season. He also drew 104 walks while only striking out 66 times. That gave him an OBP of .457.
2007 first-round pick Mike Moustakas made the second-team after a hot streak in the second half left him with 22 dingers and a .272 average. 'Moose' had one of the best seasons in the Midwest League (primarily a pitchers league) this year and should start next season at High-A Wilmington.
