The Royals face off against the Giants for the first time since last October, when Madison Bumgarner and a bunch of stiffs beat the Royals in seven games. Old friends Nori Aoki and Justin Maxwell are in Giants camp, although possibly as undercover moles, I'm not at liberty to say.
Duff-man takes to the hill for the Royals today with several regulars in the starting lineup, including Alex Gordon. Omar Infante will be playing second base in a minor league game today for a few innings.
Ned is taking this seriously!
Ned Yost on this rematch with the Giants: "I just hope I can not get too sunburned. That's my thought. It's spring training."— Andy McCullough (@McCulloughStar) March 22, 2015
On another, more somber note, apparently Royals super fan Jimmy Faseler was shot during a burglary attempt at his home and is in the hospital. Your thoughts and prayers would be welcome.
