FanFest is this weekend. Or, more to the point, Saturday. And it's for something like 30 minutes. Get there early.
On to the links of Royal and general baseball interest:
Drinking the Royals Blue-Aid : WBC Rosters Full of Royals
I don't claim to care about the WBC, but here's a nice primer for the Royals involved.
Kings of Kauffman: Alex Gordon And Batting First
It bears repeating. Mainly because the Royals seem hell-bent on moving him down in the order.
Pine Tar Press: Royals Bullpen Arms to Watch
Three under the radar arms to keep in mind. Featuring the wonderfully named Zeb Sneed.
Baseball Prospectus: On the Beat: Final Free-Agent Blitz
Front-office types give their opinions on the remaining free agents, and a look at the ramifications at the Rafael Soriano and Mike Morse deals.
And a few I found moderately to incredibly interesting:
BBC News - S African woman gored by rhino after posing for photo
It looked so harmless when I stood inched away from it's horn!
Grantland: In Memoriam: Conrad Bain, Diff'rent Strokes Patriarch
RIP Mr. Drummond.
The Daily Wiz: Sporting KC and Ivy Funds: local partnership, innovation, and money
I am convinced we are getting closer to the day where we see sponsorships on MLB uniforms.
The Verge: For Amusement Only: the life and death of the American arcade
Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.
