The Royals have optioned outfielder David Lough to the minor leagues, released veteran OF Xavier Nady and RP George Sherrill and named Luis Mendoza the 5th starter. With these moves, the final shape of the 25-man roster becomes almost entirely resolved.
By optioning Lough, who led all Royals hitters with a .455 batting average this spring, the team has clearly opted...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. You could almost hear the moans from Royals fans across the area when manager Ned Yost announced that Chris Getz had indeed beat out Johnny Giavotella for the second-base job.

Would it be too hack-tastic to use the experience of the spring season as a figure for the annual rebirth of baseball in Spring Training? Yes. So I won’t. Indeed, I suspect at this point Spring Training feels for others like it does for me: not an exciting time of newness, but as a never-ending sea of pointlessness that makes one ashamed for ever having enjoyed it at all. (I would...
