How the Cubs ended up with Bonifacio

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs are lucky the Kansas City Royals have a hard budget. That's the reason they employ Emilio Bonifacio, the leading hitter in the National League entering play on Tuesday. Here's how it went down: Kansas City needed pitching after Ervin Santana priced himself out of the market, but they didn't have much money left in their budget.
