What, the 21st century has provided us statistics but not a moon base!?!
You know, because real MLB fans don't boo opposing players or their own home team's players.
in the reverse standings for draft selection!
So Weiner, who admitted he didn't see the telecast because he was in the stadium, said that discussion of any changes down the road need to include ESPN. "I think that everybody -- both Major League Baseball and the Players Association, but also ESPN, which broadcasts the event -- have to ... take a look at this dynamic and ask, 'Is this what we want?'

Giants note: The swap of Jonathan Sanchez (62 ERA+) for Melky Cabrera (155 OPS+) is looking pretty good right about now. With Pablo Sandoval out, though, the Melkman is working without a wing man Royals are behind a lot of other teams that suck too.
Early slide into 3rd base.
should've saved more lives
Any thoughts on going for Hanley to get us some pop at SS?
Could we trade another shortstop like Aviles or Falu for someone in their depleted farm system? No take-backs on Betancourt!
$10M divided by a $15 guess-timate of average price per ticket and a drink at the park, equates to 666,667 more tickets needing to be sold to overcome this financial loss to the Royals. If his Hosmer-ness brings in an extra 5K people to a game, that's 133 games it will take to break-even. So if the Royals keep winning this season and next and Hosmer doesn't have a Sophomore slump, I could see this not being a problem. We all saw how huge the audience numbers turned out for 2009 Greinke performances, so what if Hosmer can repeat that for a couple of years?

@Buster_ESPN Heard this: Other teams are sure that the Royals intend to trade Kyle Farnsworth, to take advantage of his value in a weak market. 39 minutes agoESPN
No, not Louis Winthorpe III (Dan Aykroyd) and Billy Ray Valentine (Eddie Murphy). I'm talkin' Kyle Davies and Robinson Tejeda. via www.homevideos.com
Royals are still in the chase! :)
