So if they play .500 here on out, they win 85. (same as the Mets)

Gordon just jumped into the stands, caught a foul ball, flattened a White Sox fan in the process.

Kahrl:

It's worth noting that while Ventura is on that leader board, he's also responsible for half of the Royals' six total hit batters, while the league has pegged 20 of K.C.'s men. That's a total that ties the Texas Rangers for total guys pelted at the plate and net hit batsmen suffered versus inflicted. At minus-14, the Royals have been on the receiving end of this kind of thing far more often than they've dished it out.

The Royals had the best bullpen ERA (min: 60 IP) in April (1.02) in major league history, breaking the record set by the 1992 Astros (1.12).

Cain swiping at Kinsler as he slides into second on a DP -- late bloomer still learning how to play the game, folks!

ok, i like the royals just fine and the all-star game doesn't mean all that much anyway but it is kiiiind of ridiculous that royals are #1 or top 3 in voting for all AL positions

When Ned Yost played in the minors, he taped pictures of Dusty Rhodes to his locker. He spent part of yesterday watching old Dusty videos.

Rusty Kuntz plans to ask Ben Zobrist for a leaf-blower as payment for giving up No. 18. "It's a two-month rental. You can't ask for a car."

Seeing David Price's niece in a Blue Jay cap of course made me rethink everything, and now I'm 100% in favour of the trade.

A few hours' perspective, and 1) I've probably gone from paying no attention to minor-league prospects to overrating their value/chances, and 2) as Wilner says (I do like him), it's done, forget about the forest, enjoy the trees for the next two months.

Bautista supposedly would not comment on the Price trade today because he was upset that his comments about the Tulowitzki trade were taken out of context.

with two more wins, they'll reach their PECOTA projection for the year (72), and they have 46 games left

Who's your AL MVP?

@keithlaw
Still Donaldson

what about Kendrys? Without him Royals probably aren't in first place right now.

‏@keithlaw
They're 11 games up. You could have replaced him with a slime mold and they'd still be in first place.
