Kottaras wins pregame cow-milking contest

2

George Kottaras didn’t want to be embarrassed when asked to participate in a cow-milking contest as part of the Rangers’ Farm and Ranch Day promotion prior to Saturday’s game. So, he … well, let him tell it. "We were home (earlier in the week) when I was asked about it," he said, "and I went on YouTube to do a little research because I’d never really been around a cow before. I got some tips from the YouTube video...About an hour before the game," Kottaras said, "I went out to the outfield and met the owners of the cow. "They gave me some little tips and pointers. I got acquainted with the cow a little bit. Rubbed the utters. It worked out great for me." Nothing beats hands-on experience.

Royals >> Goldman Sachs

Many financial entities are worth more on their own than the entire industry of baseball. So why is it that the Kansas City Royals have a much better idea of what a their left-handed middle reliever is worth than Goldman Sachs does of its semiconductor trader? Because the Royals know how to collect, analyze and interpret data.

It's nice to watch a game and come to the realization the team you cheer for is better than the opponent. I'm still not sure if that says more about the Royals or the White Sox.

Royals 2013 Season PPD Due to Inclement Weather

Said Dayton Moore, "It snowed in May and now it's raining and fuckin' freezing out there. Also Miguel Cabrera. So, uh, fuck it. See y'all next year." The Royals 2013 season is scheduled to be made up in a day-night double-season in 2014. The new CBA rules will allow teams to carry 26 players for both halves of the double-season.
