WSJ: Baseball Free Agency Dies of Neglect

Interesting article on the rash of pre-free agency contract extensions signed by young players. It would be great to think we could be seeing Gordon, Butler, Hosmer, Moose and others for over a decade. Will it happen?

3 for 4 day wins by Wilmington, Omaha and a split by the Naturals in their doubleheader. Kane County was froze out and will play a doubleheader today.

Danny Duffy: hardest throwing lefty in MLB

Velocity readings at the K may be a little hot, but Duffy's been throwing gas in his first two starts. His average fastball velocity of 94.9 MPH is 3rd highest in the Majors, behind only Stephen Strasburg and Jeff Samardzija. And among lefties, he's in a league of his own. Matt Moore is the closest LH SP, clocking in at 93.6 MPH, 1.3 MPH slower than Duffy's average. Duffy is also sporting a K/9 over 10 so far which is pretty good in its own right. The kid has been dealing so far in 2012.

Game X - Overflow Thread I - The Tigers of Detroit 1, The Royals of Kansas City 1, End of the 4th After a long first inning, the young renaissance man appears to be getting his bearings, matching wits with the reigning Most Valued Player of the League of Americans. Restoring hope one three-pitch K at a time.

Sexiest minor league organization in the history of whatever.

Royals looking at LSU pitcher Kevin Gausman

Law writes, "There’s a fair amount of industry speculation that Gausman is Kansas City’s target with the fifth overall pick, although I assume that’s based on the assumption that the first four picks are, in some order, Byron Buxton, Mark Appel (who was 97-99 early last night, but threw an arm-numbing 149 pitches), Kyle Zimmer (who was rained out) and Mike Zunino. The Royals did want a college starter last year, only to have their top four choices (including Dylan Bundy, the high school pitcher who was as polished as a college guy) taken in the top four spots. This year, they should get one of those three college arms if that is indeed still their goal."

Game IX - Overflow II - Cleveland A Lot, Royals Not Enough, middle of 6th The game that will not end. The season that will not begin. Mendoza might just be who we thought he was. When will Paulino be "recovered" from his "injury" and ready to join the rotation?

Game IX - Overflow Thread I - Cleveland 6, Kansas City 3, middle of the 3rd Blown call at first gives the Indigenous Persons of North America of Cleveland life. And six runs. Is the Royals' season over on April 15th? Did their season hit an iceberg last night and the last of the survivors are freezing to death this afternoon?
