Top 10 starting pitchers in baseball heading into spring training

Without a doubt, pulling apart the ten best arms in the game at any point is a tough-to-nearly-impossible task. However, in today’s game, with a firmly established group of top arms between the ages of 27-33, it is a specifically tough group to crack.

Johnny Cueto was only a Royal for a few months. But that doesn’t mean he deserves this kind of shade. Cueto, who won the World Series with Kansas City last year, was not invited by the Royals on their recent trip to the White House despite having both an off day and a desire to attend, according to Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area. The All-Star right-hander was acquired by the Royals...
