Game XVI - Overflow Thread I - Score: Irrelevant Every day the futility of our collective existence becomes more and more apparent. The games go on, but the results matter little. All is subtarded.

Jurickson Profar-Future Second Baseman for the Kansas City Royals

13

I'm determined this is the guy the royals need for their long term second baseman. I'm not sure how much butler would go for but I would be quick to move him for profar. From a quick glance, it looks like the rangers don't really have a guy to fill their DH role regularly except for the guys getting half a day off. A-What do you think B-Is it possible/probably if the royals come to realize they don't have a second baseman of the future

BTBS article on April W/L records: A recent study conducted of Phillies' monthly winning percentages (dating from 2000 to 2011) indicates a minor correlation between April success (or lack thereof) and end-of-season winning percentage. Instead, the study indicates performances in the months May and June are more telling than April. To begin the study, I found Phillies' month-by-month records from 2000 to present on Baseball Reference and placed them in Excel. I then ran a multiple regression analysis with the Y variable equaling season winning percentage and the X variables equaling the various monthly winning percentages. I did not include the instances where games were played in March or October: * April: .127 * May: .244 * June: .219 * July: .143 * August: .175 * September: .178 The higher the number, the more closely that month is linked to the end-of-season winning percentage. (Not exactly peer-reviewed, but interesting nonetheless, considering the current Royals April Disaster.)

A scout who watched the team over the weekend says he was decidedly unimpressed by every aspect of the Royals’ play. But the expectations of club officials always were lower than those on the outside. Young players do not always make a linear progression. I'm glad anonymous scout is finally able to confirm what we believed - the Royals stink. Ken Rosenthal

Time for Royals fans to take drastic action like Genoa fans?

Genoa were losing 4-0 at the 53rd minute when the Marassi crowd halted play by throwing fireworks and climbing on top of the tunnel. Captain Marco Rossi went to negotiate with the ultras, who demanded the squad remove their jerseys, as they were "unworthy" of wearing the Genoa colours. After some time, the players accepted and there were tears from Giandomenico Mesto as he handed over his shirt. Rossi was walking around the pitch with a pile of jerseys to show the fans, but Giuseppe Sculli refused to co-operate.
