    Their root beer is amazing. If you’re in Connecticut sometime, take I-384, Exit 1, and head toward Manchester. It’s a about mile down the road on your left.

    He was IBB in the 9th because of the situation. First and third 1 out in a tie ballgame. They wanted a force at home…period. There weren’t afraid of a kid with like 7 ML PA. You say only 5 or 6 million like we’re talking about the Yankees. The Royals payroll is somewhere around A-Rods salary. 5 or 6 (or possibly 10) million dollars means a lot more to us than it does almost everyone else.

    Any projection system will tell you the Royals have close to no chance at the playoffs this season. Calling him up 20something days before we would be guaranteed another season of Hos was stupid…period. Can’t wait for the farm to be called up but jesus Dayton use your freaking head every once in a while. Hopefully his prospect management is better than his ML talent evualtion skills seem to be.
