The Royals have long been in the basement of the AL Central but with the Indians and Twins playing so poorly the Royals have actually jumped from a perennial fifth-place team to fourth-place in 2011 and third-place in 2012.

There’s no doubt that the Warriors’ Lee started the incident, by shoving the lanky and usually passive Hibbert
On February 24th I started writing this: “I keep writing about “daily fantasy hockey gods” as if there were some great being (or beings) out there who decide our fantasy fates. I’m here to tell you, they exist. I don’t have proof at this point if we’re talking a singular Christian God, a Mount Olympus
