As the old adage goes, 'Spare the rod, spoil the child'. Hrm, I was going to make a reference to 'caning' and 'Singapore' here but it seems I've fumbled it worse than Mark Sanchez did with his slide into the backside of Moore. Yes, that was a football reference. Deal with it. You're reading the works of none other than the main editor/writer for Razzball fantasy football so some pigskin is gonna leak over no matter what I do. But more to the point, I've been bringing the Discount Double Check series to you this pre-season in the hopes we can find some potential sleepers for 2013 fantasy baseball and what better way to do that then to revisit a former Grey love in Lorenzo Cain. Grey really wouldn't leave this man alone in 2012. At some point I'm sure he got addicted to Cain...SUGAR! The fact he didn't land on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew is a bit surprising as he was snorting lines of confectionery by late March. At least that's what he told me when I asked about the white powder caking his nose. But back to the point, we're here today to look at Lorenzo and see if his current ADP of 196 is warranted or if he's going at a discount for 2013 fantasy baseball...The post Discount Double Check: Lorenzo Cain appeared first on Fantasy Baseball Blog at Razzball.com.

With the youth movement in full effect last year, the Kansas City Royals were expected to take a decent step forward. Instead, they won just 1 more game in 2012 than in ’11, going a very disappointing 72-90, but good enough for a 3rd place finish in the AL Central.
The main culprit was just what we thought it might be: pitching. KC’s team ERA of 4.30 was 23rd best in baseball...
The Kansas City Royals took huge measures this offseason to fix their number one on-field issue, the rotation. The addition of James Shields gave them a legitimate ace pitcher at the front of their rotation. The rebuilt rotation looks stronger but leaves the question open: Who’s number two?
Throughout 2012 the opinion around the Royals fanbase was very similar. Many people...
Bob Fescoe spent last week in Surprise, Arizona interviewing Kansas City Royals players and coaches for his morning show on Kansas City’s 610 Sports Radio.
When he was not on the air, he was taking in the sites of early Spring Training and snapping pics that he would later tweet out to his followers.
With Bob’s permission, we share those pics with you below:
The Minnesota Twin signed right handed pitcher Kyle Davies to a minor league deal. Davies, 29, has spent seven seasons at the major league level.
Davies addition does little to help the Twins rotation as he figures to serve primarily as organizational depth. In his last big league season Davies finished with a 6.75 ERA before he was released by Kansas City. He spent the remainder...
SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) Tim Collins is listed at 5-foot-7, which might be generous. His presence in the Kansas City Royals' bullpen, however, looms quite large.
The left-hander led AL relief pitchers with 93 strikeouts in only 69 2-3 innings last season.
"I was surprised," Collins said. "My strikeouts were up a lot from the year before. That's not something...
SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost has had surgery to remove his gall bladder.
Yost attended the Royals workout Tuesday morning, but missed the Royals' initial intrasquad game in the afternoon to have the surgery at St. Joseph's Hospital in Phoenix. He was back at Royals camp on Wednesday with an ice pack under his uniform jersey.
Yost said it has...
SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) Luke Hochevar is a paradox.
"You break down Luke's starts last season, half of them were at the top of the league," Royals manager Ned Yost said Sunday. "The other half were at the bottom of the league. So it's just inconsistency."
Hochevar had an 8-0 record with a 2.38 ERA in the 13 starts he made that Kansas City won, according...
Before you start reading this remember that the title of the article states that the Kansas City Royals “should” win the A.L. Central. I know many of you chuckled when you read it and many more probably threw out a “WTF”. Believe me, I get that. After following an organization for over 30 years [...]
