Some of the Kansas City Royals players, including Salvador Perez and Bruce Chen, have posted a “Harlem Shake” video.
From Wikipedia: The videos last between 30 and 32 seconds and feature an excerpt from the song “Harlem Shake” by electronic musician Baauer. Usually, a video begins with one person (often helmeted or masked) dancing to the song alone for 15 seconds, surrounded by other people not paying attention or unaware of the dancing individual. When the bass drops, the video cuts to the entire crowd doing a crazy convulsive dance for the next 15 seconds. Moreover, in the second half of the video, people often wear a minimum of clothes or crazy outfits or costumes while wielding strange props.
It was only a matter of time.

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...
James Shields was the “big name” in the Shields/Wade Davis trade, but the success or failure of the trade hinges on Davis. Shields is the Kansas City Royals’ ace, but he’s a free agent after the 2014 season. Whether he pitches well or not, it’s likely he’s gone after two years. However, Davis is under team control until 2016. The Royals believe Shields will improve...
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...
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) 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) -- Will Smith came into spring training as the longshot in Kansas City's four-man competition to be the fifth starter.
The young left-hander got the first chance and impressed, throwing two perfect innings with a strikeout and outpitching two Texas starters already with rotation spots in a spring training opener that ended in a 5-5 tie after nine innings...
The Kansas City Royals are in a pickle. With 5 viable candidates, there's no question that the Royals have a logjam at second base. As the 2012 season ended, the likely candidates were limited to three: Chris Getz, Johnny Giavotella, and Irving Falu. Unsatisfied with those candidates, the Royals front office brought in veteran Miguel Tejada and super-sub Elliot Johnson.
