I was born in Dubuque, IA as a true Hawkeye fan. Saw my first Royals game in 1979 and was hooked. Moved to southern Colorado and became a Braves fan as well. That's what happens when the only thing on cable back in the day worth watching was TBS. I probably doomed our beloved franchise by linking the two teams back then. I now reside in Ozark, MO where I am teaching my kids the finer points of loving a losing baseball team.

Mijares trade bait?

Is there a truly viable return for a LOOGY?

Baseball Nation on the triple play

This sums it up right here: "Yep, that's right. A Yuniesky Betancourt walk. It was his first since ... April 18? Man, I think the Baseball Reference server has a virus."

Justin Verlander Reads Royals Review

I've read about this before after he was on Conan, but apparently someone got photo evidence before his start today.

Rob Neyer is a hater.

He's also basically right on every point in this article.

KC Baseball futures as of 03/18/2012

I was in Vegas over the weekend and hit the sports books a little bit. The Royals opened the betting line early on at 30/1 and as of the 18th it had dropped to 15/1 to win the AL. World series...

Sounds like last night's game was ugly

Felipe Paulino, also bidding for a rotation spot, finished the game with three innings and was charged with four runs on four hits and two walks. "I thought Paulino just never got on track,"...

Most predictable thing to happen in ST so far?

Zumaya with torn UCL. Will undergo Tommy John surgery ending his season.

Braun wins appeal

No suspension. Cardinals fans crapping themselves everywhere.

RIP Gary Carter

One of the greats from when I was a kid. Never an Expos fan, but was a big Gary Carter fan.

OT: Letter from Kenny Powers to Tim Tebow

I know a lot of people on this site watch most of the HBO series and I just read this and thought I'd pass it along.

OT: Las Vegas info

I've only been to Vegas once. It was 12 years ago and for less than 24 hours for business only. The wife is out on Surprise this spring, because we have friends going to Vegas at the time we were...

Royals Caravan

Do any of you know where the Caravan is supposed to be when it comes to Springfield this Sunday? I've gotten a different address from the Royals website and the rag of a paper that we have in...

A victim of the Grass Creek Rivalry

I don't usually like much on Big League Stew, but really liked this piece.

OT: Awesome sign from Packers fan

Kudos to Shutdown Corner for running with this!

Carl Crawford is sorry...

I don't know, perhaps he's spending too much time managing his antiquarian bookstore?

Riggleman quits Nats job after sweep

Heard Rizzo's presser after the game on the radio today. He said Riggleman gave him an ultimatum before the game that they had until the end of the game to pick up the option on him for next year or he wasn't getting on the bus. Apparantly he was not bluffing...

I kinda hate myself for this, but I am a fan of Frenchy.

I went to the game last Friday night in St Louis, and had great seats. Before the game we were sitting around the Royals dugout taking pics and watching BP. Frenchy comes out of the dugout with a...
