RR Hardball Dynasty

Anyone interested in starting a Hardball dynasty? I've never personally done one, but it looks interesting and can help fill the off-season void. I'd be up for purchasing the first season if we could get enough participants. I'm not sure how much more expensive the next few seasons become, but we could just cross that bridge at a later time. Ideally 15-20 members would be nice so if we could get that then we can go from there.

Dixon and Bull suspended indefinitely

"Missouri Coach Frank Haith has suspended senior guard Mike Dixon and freshman guard Dominique for undisclosed violations of team rules. Haith made the announcement at a press conference before practice on Friday afternoon at Mizzou Arena. He emphasized that the violations did not involve the criminal justice system and said the length of the suspension has not been determined and will depend on how the players respond to the discipline. "We have high expectations for our players, and particularly our seniors," Haith said."

The Many Baserunnings of Jeff "Frenchy" Francoeur: A Top 20(ish)

As the season winds down on what will hopefully be Jeff Francoeur's final season in a Royals uniform I figured we should take a look at some of his great baserunning skills. Typing in "throws out...

Travel distances of MLB Teams in 2012

Of course the White Sox travel the least.

Teams With Open 40-Man Roster Spots

Few teams have open 40-man roster space once rosters swell to accommodate late season reinforcements in September. In the last week alone teams have purchased the contracts of 37 players, including prospects such as Jurickson Profar and Shelby Miller, veterans like Fred Lewis and Xavier Nady and a variety of others. The result: just five teams have open 40-man roster space. The Royals (two open spots), Angels (two open spots), Brewers (two open spots), Twins (one open spot) and Reds (one open spot) are the only MLB teams that presently have open 40-man spots, according to MLBDepthCharts.com. These clubs are well-positioned to claim someone should an intriguing player be placed on waivers.

Machado to make debut tonight

Pretty highly ranked prospect. It'll be cool to see his first started against us tonight.

Diamonds in the Rough 7/22

Not trying to steal anyones thunder, but I'm pretty adamant about wanting to know the prospect reports so I thought I'd post it since it wasn't up already. Aaron Brooks 7 IP 6 H 2 R 2 ER 0 BB 6 K Humberto Arteaga 3-4 2b, 3b, R, 3 RBI Jorge Bonifacio 3-5 2 HR, 4 RBI Personally I think the main prospects should be on here daily so we can get a quick view of how they did. Wil Myers 0-5 1BB 2K (BA now down to .291) Giavotella 1-6 1K (.322) Sugar Ray 5IP 4H 4ER 2BB 4K 2HR (1-3 4.41 ERA) Cuthbert 1-4 1 2B 1RBI 2K (.226) Eibner 0-4 2K (.203) Mondesi 0-3 2R 2BB 1K (.289) Hernandez 2-5 2K (.222) Bubba 0-5 3K (.271) Ford 1-2 1 2B 2BB (.264)

Competitive Balance Lottery

Competitive Balance Lottery

Today is the Competitive Balance Lottery. The Royals have multiple chances in the lottery for having a top 10 smallest market and top 10 lowest payroll. Picks won will fall between the first and second round of the draft or the second group picks will come after the second round. Unlike regular draft picks, the CBL picks CAN be traded but only during the season and only one time. Lottery is at 12:15 and picks are announced 75 minutes later.

Well we can put that baby to bed. Also Glass put down his microphone and walked away after Parkins asked a few financial questions about the Royals.

"@royals have called a press conference at 4PM for a "major baseball-related announcement" - Several Twitter accounts.

Assuming something Zimmer related. No way could it be an extension for a younger player. Haven't we used up all of our extension for the year.

Frank Martin to SC

A source close to Kansas State basketball coach Frank Martin said Monday morning that Martin will become South Carolina’s next coach. The source confirmed a report in The State, a newspaper in Columbia, S.C., that said Martin will be introduced as the Gamecocks’ coach on Tuesday. The State also reported that a trustees meeting had been called to discuss "a contractual matter."
