KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Perhaps the best side effect of Major League Baseball's decision to allow managers to challenge at least one umpires decision each game this season is that fans at Kauffman Stadium (and everywhere else) will be allowed to see controversial plays on the Crown Vision scoreboard.
Yes, now fans at the stadium will get virtually the same instant-replay experience...
Since I began mentioning a few weeks ago that the Royals might start the season without a backup middle infielder on the 25-man roster, there seems to be some genuine concern out there in Royals land.
The reason the Royals might start the season without a backup middle infielder is because they are leaning toward carrying five outfielders. Aside from the starters, Jarrod Dyson, Justin...

Kansas City GM Dayton Moore knows that his time is short.
