Can Buchholz Finally Get to 30 Starts This Season?

Clay Buchholz has had a pretty good spring and pitched well yesterday except for one bad inning where he gave up a base clearing double to Pedro Ciriaco.  It looks like John Farrell will tap Buchholz to be the opening day starter now that Lester is pitching in the Windy City.  Can Buchholz finally get over the 30 games started barrier that has eluded him his entire career? In his...

Royals News and Notes

Today the Royals welcomed back an OLD friend to the team.  Raul Ibanez was signed after being released by the Angels earlier this month.  Ibanez brings in a Royal slash line of .157/.258/.265 with 3 homers in just under 200 plate appearances.  Not exactly staggering numbers, but the career body of work makes me somewhat hopeful that the return to friendly confines will wake up...
