Dominant Duffy At The WBC

Some quick and mostly random World Baseball Classic thoughts as we reach the midpoint of the spring training schedule. — It’s not spring training related necessarily, although the World Baseball Classic is an exhibition, but Danny Duffy looked outstanding on Sunday night. Sure, the Canadian lineup isn’t on par with what they have on Team […]

RECAP: Royals 10, Twins 3; Patience – And The Twins Bullpen – Rewards The Royals

The important part of my narrative I’m desperately attempting to manufacture is that the Royals scored a couple of quick runs. Then, they shelved […]
