Alex Gordon needs more rest

by John Viril— Kansas City Royals LF Alex Gordon is a key player for the team’s 2014 playoff hopes.

When Royals left fielder Alex Gordon said in September of 2010 that he intended to "dominate" in 2011, the comment, needless to say, took virtually everyone by surprise.
