Poor billboards. As the Kansas City Royals keep getting better, the damage they inflict on their highway signs just keeps getting worse. To the point that now they're on fire. Or so it appears. Two years ago, signs on opposite sides of Interstate 35 showed a pitch from James Shields (on one side of the road) tearing through the billboard vinyl on its way toward Sal Perez's glove...
