Ciricao's name reminds me of that Portlandia sketch. Cacao! I bet like at least two of you get that.

If you haven't heard, the Royals signed a pair of over-the-hill relievers this week - Brett Tomko and Ramon Troncoso. Troncoso was at least useful during the Obama administration, posting a 2.73 ERA and 1.4 WAR in 2009 with righties hitting just a .616 OPS against. Brett Tomko is a 40 year old who last pitched in the Big Leagues in 2011.

Yordano Ventura impressed against the A's earlier this week, how will Duffy respond?
