Royals finally using Luke Hochevar Correctly

by John Viril— Internet wags clobbered Kansas City Royals GM Dayton Moore when he decided to keep pitcher Luke Hochevar for a 1-year $4.5 contract this off-season. I must confess that I was among their number. In my own defense, I blasted the move because I was convinced that the Royals would simply put him in the same situation in which he had failed so many times before—a rotation...

Hosmer starting to show signs of resurgence

KANSAS CITY, Mo. No one is proclaiming that Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer is "back." But there certainly have been signs in the past week that Hosmer is resembling the prospect that everyone in baseball was raving about after his rookie season (.293, 19 homers, 78 RBIs) and not the flop he was last year (.232, 14 homers, 60 RBIs). Hosmer's resurgence, if it truly...

Royals conclude four-game set with the Tribe tonight at the K

(AP) -- After each team took turns in coming up with big efforts at the plate in a doubleheader split, it could be time for the Kansas City Royals to do so in Monday night's series finale with the Cleveland Indians.

Player of the Game: Ervin Santana (7 Inn. 6 hits 0 ER 0 BB / 5 SO) The Leadoff They say pitching is the key to winning in baseball. But there also is another key saying that should go along with that: you can’t win if you can’t score.

Cobb, Shields must-starts in fantasy

Start 'Em James Shields (TB, CHW) I still think, 10 years from now, we'll view the Shields-for-Wil-Myers swap as a Tampa heist, though the early returns from Big Game James (3.09 ERA, 1.09 WHIP in five starts) are at least holding off Jeff-Bagwell-for-Larry-Anderson comparisons.
