Royals Drop Four Straight, Swept By Yankees, Lose 4-2

Heathcott and Lindgren: At last! Reasons to watch

Memorable day, Memorial Day. The Evils scored a zillion runs and played Paddington Bear with their stat lines, whacking the jerks who embarrassed us last week. No complaints here.

One thing I'd almost forgotten about laughers: You don't feel compelled to watch every pitch...
