Havin’ some fun at the Ole Ball Game

The weekend series between the Kansas City Royals and Oakland Athletics will be one not soon forgotten by anyone on either side of the match, and probably Major League Baseball as well.  Things were done, things were said, and things will probably happen because of all of this, but the lasting impression is that if you don't start a fight, there typically won't be a fight. ...

Early Indications Show A’s Rotation Will Keep Team In Contention

Despite a series loss over the weekend to the Kansas City Royals, the A’s rotation has been historical to begin the season. Five shutouts over the first twelve games — now 13 after the 4-2 loss Sunday — tied only the 1913 Philadelphia Phillies as the only two teams in history to toss as many zeroes in the final score through as few games. Considering the A’s are doing so...

Royals Win – And a Look at the Ugliness of HBP

Adam's work can be found at apcblogs.com follow him on twitter @adampaulcooper It only happened once. I was 18 years old. It was the summer following my senior year and one of my teammates had been hit hard in the back by the opposing pitcher. As my friend trotted down to first, this jerk of a pitcher decided to give my friend a head nod and blow him a kiss. What a...

WATCH: Royals-A's game filled with more ejections

The Kansas City Royals have a problem with the Oakland Athletics, and one beanball from Yordano Ventura to Brett Lawrie wasn’t going to fix that. In the first inning of Sunday’s game at Kauffman Stadium, Scott Kazmir plunked Lorenzo Cain (it looked accidental since if you’re going to throw at someone, you don’t throw at their feet, but whatever). Home plate umpire Greg...

Royals hope bad blood won't spill into series finale against A's

The Oakland Athletics handed Kansas City its first home defeat, subduing the Royals' scorching offense. Tempers might not be as easily suppressed in Sunday's finale, though, after the contentious events of the series' first two games. Josh Reddick powered a five-run fourth with a three-run shot in Oakland's 5-0 win Saturday. Royals hurler Yordano Ventura plunked Brett Lawrie in the...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Thursday, Apr 9

I re-learned a very valuable lesson yesterday that I’d frankly just forgotten to account for — hitting is hard when it’s cold. On paper the Red Sox looked great against Aaron Harang, but on a cold, windy, rainy/misty day, Harang dominated them. My lineup tanked, only salvaging some semblance of respectability thanks to Scott Kazmir. Wednesday’s Official Lineup (click to...

Fantasy Roundup: Carrasco, Kazmir K 10

Entering this season, few pitchers were as hyped as Carlos Carrasco. His stuff had never been in question — his four-seamer has some heat and his slider is among the best in the league — but for one reason or another it took Carrasco until the 2014 season to put it all together. One start into the 2015 season, it looks like he’s kept it together. Carrasco pitched 6.1 innings...
