The fact that the Yankees only scored 14 runs today is unbelievable, considering the Kansas City bullpen threw seven innings in relief today. Really, I’m just...

The Royals face an interesting problem, one that they haven’t faced that I can remember even during their first wave of talent of the GMDM regime.
