It's weeks like this last one that explain why so many Royals blogs seem to drop dead without warning during the middle of the season. Though in the short term a terrible Royal-sized meltdown will produce a flurry of activity, which is what we're seeing now.
Royals-related links up top, general baseball links below, with a few surprises mixed in. Also, please note the launch of SBN's newest baseball blog, MLB Daily Dish, which has hit the ground running with near-constant posting of rumors, trade talk, etc. As always, feel free to shot me an email if you have a link you'd like to suggest.
Oh, I'm also going to begin posting Braves-related minor league links as well. I think you know why.
