the inside the park HR (ground ball) was one of the craziest things I've ever seen in baseball.
I was at the game last night, helped get the "Let's Go Royals" chant going. Can't make it tonight though, but will there tomorrow.

That wasn't an Inside the parker. It was ruled a single and an error.

I don't have details but a couple of Royals' BB's are rumoring that a HUGE deal could be going down either tonight or tomorrow. According to ChiefsInsifer on the scout.com board a LOT of things have to fall into place, if the trade is not does happen by Sun. night it will not happen, and it will NOT involve Gordon or Butler.

Haha... Athan says it could be a Hercshel Walker type of deal. Greaaaat. Not sure what to think about that... the Cowboys got the good end of that deal.

Just to clarify, Athan isn't the one breaking this report that something's in the works, it's another website, Athan just chimes in with what he's hearing.

Yeah, you can say that, but Millwood's ERA is 6+ whenever he pitches at home.

De La Rosa kinda struggled through those first couple innings, but real nice numbers overall. 6 IP, 2 R, 2 BB, 7 K. It's a quality start, I'd take that every time. Good strikeout numbers too.

Also, Wichita played a doubleheader tonight. Sweeney did hit a homer in that first game. Also in that game, Greinke went 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K. Tyler Lumsden from the MacDougal deal started the 2nd game. He pitched 6 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 6 K. Alex Gordon also hit his 19th homer and had his 20th SB in the 2nd game.

I hope to god that trend continues. If they all can continue that up to the majors, we'd be set in a year or 2
