  4. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 17, 2014, 6:06 AM EDT

    Julio Teheran

    Lots of shutouts yesterday. Including one that was the Platonic Ideal of a baseball game. At least if you have taste and stuff.

  5. George Springer to hit second in his major league debut

    Apr 16, 2014, 5:04 PM EDT

    George Springer

    The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

  6. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 16, 2014, 6:38 AM EDT

    Night court

    I only watched a little baseball last night. Watched a lot of “Night Court” though.

  7. Mike Moustakas and the meaninglessness of spring training

    Apr 15, 2014, 12:48 PM EDT

    Mike Moustakas

    Every year lots of people act like spring training numbers mean something and every year they don’t. I guess there’s really no way of avoiding it, since everyone is so excited to have any kind of baseball to watch again after a long winter that they latch onto some random 20-game sample against varying degrees of competition.

  8. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 14, 2014, 5:00 AM EDT

    Andrelton Simmons

    The other owners will have to ratify the move at their next meeting, but as of yesterday it’s all but official: the Braves now own the Nationals.

  10. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 10, 2014, 7:06 AM EDT

    Victor Martinez

    I saw Captain America last night. It was way better than the first few innings of the Tigers-Dodgers game.

  11. Damn, kid! Yordano Ventura threw a 103 mph pitch last night

    Apr 9, 2014, 12:19 PM EDT

    Yordano Ventura Royals

    Everyone already knew that Royals rookie Yordano Ventura throws incredibly hard, but his 2014 debut last night was on a whole different level.

  12. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 9, 2014, 6:18 AM EDT

    Ryan Braun

    A ton of guys had multi-homer games yesterday. Ryan Braun led the pack with his three. I’m sure that won’t bother anyone.

    Apr 8, 2014, 11:33 AM EDT

    Good news for the Royals’ second baseman.

    Apr 8, 2014, 6:13 AM EDT

    Yoenis Cespedes, Sam Fuld, Josh Reddick

    The A’s remind me of someone. And a couple of rainouts remind me of my favorite movie ever.

  15. Omar Infante hit in face by pitch, undergoing tests for concussion and broken jaw

    Apr 7, 2014, 11:47 PM EDT

    Omar Infante AP

    The Royals did some shuffling in their bullpen Monday.

  17. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 7, 2014, 6:02 AM EDT

    Kemp Ramirez

    Matt Kemp and Hanley Ramirez each went yard twice. And I contemplate the return of the game-winning RBI stat.

  18. Inside Ned Yost’s head

    Apr 2, 2014, 7:35 PM EDT

    Ned Yost and his flexible thumb

    Have you ever wondered what Royals manager Ned Yost is thinking when he puts in pinch-runner after pinch-runner, rather than maybe hitting for the guy who was arguably the league’s worst hitter last year?

  19. Ian Kinsler homers, hits a walkoff single for the Tigers

    Apr 2, 2014, 5:06 PM EDT

    Ian Kinsler

    But the biggest problem for the Royals wasn’t Ian Kinsler. It was Ned Yost’s bullpen management.

    Does winning on Opening Day mean anything? I dunno, ask Oakland and Seattle.

    Royals catcher Salvador Perez was lifted from Wednesday’s Cactus League game against the Padres after taking a pitch off his batting helmet.
