Royals acquire Jacobs

The Royals acquired Mike Jacobs from the Marlins for RP Leo Nunez.  As a Royals fan, I like the deal.  Granted, we have a perceived logjam at 1B, but among Gload/Butler/Shealy/Kila, absolutely ZERO of them have shown the ability to hit consistently at the major league level yet.  GMDM has shown the ability to find good RPs on the cheap, so my general thought is any time you can add a guy who can hit 30HRs for a reliever, you have to do it.  Jacobs isn't a stud, but he has shown more power than anyone currently on KC's roster has.  Hopefully, Gload and Shealy can be moved, and Butler/Kila can fight for 1B/DH time.
