Look for the Royals to go undefeated this season.

Richard Durrett offers his 'Reaction' to the Rangers second consecutive spring loss to the Kansas City Royals.

Some fella named Dick Kaegel at MLB.com recaps the Rangers 7-6 defeat while highlighting the efforts of Elvis Andrus (he of the diving stop that led to a double play, 3-3, RBI triple day) yesterday.

Jeff Wilson also has a recap of how people such as Mitch Stetter, Neal Cotts, Tanner Scheppers and Kelvin De La Cruz let Bruce Chen off the hook. It was the most Spring Trainingest game of all time.

T.R. Sullivan checks in with a piece on Tommy Mendonca who is adjusting to playing catcher this spring.

Wilson writes about Joe Nathan feeling like perhaps he is nearing the best he's felt since having arm surgery. In the best shape of the worst shape of his life, perhaps?

Behind the DMN paywall, Tim Cowlishaw writes a piece about Yu Darvish and Jeremy Lin because...they are Asian? Because they both do sports activities?

Matt Mosley's piece on Michael Young needs only the headline: "Young vows to punish Father Time" to be enjoyable.

Randy Galloway writes about Josh Hamilton and how awesome he is. Though, here's the part that stuck out to me:

Josh might yet get his center field wish, even if some in the organization don't want him out there fulltime. "He'd win the Gold Glove, too," Washington said. "Nobody is better than Josh in center."

Hopefully Washington is pumping up his superstar, who is very good at baseball, because I'm pretty sure Craig Gentry could moonwalk to balls that Hamilton would pop an adductor muscle trying to get to.

Behind the DMN paywall, Gerry Fraley updates on the lefty specialist role race.

Sullivan's Notebook has notes(?) (It's hard to think of different ways to note what is in the notebook links) on Holland and Ogando's day yesterday, Neal Cotts being added to the big league camp, and so many other notes noted.

Wilson also has notes! Wilson writes about Cotts, Mike Napoli pacing himself, Tanner Scheppers' health, and how some notable pitchers fared in an intrasquad game yesterday.

Evan Grant had a chat yesterday. Within this link are some highlights from that chat. Within the highlights is Evan Grant saying that Adrian Beltre will go down as "one of the best 3B of all time."

Durrett's got your 'Surprise Six' right here.

Finally, Anthony Andro writes that Yu Darvish has signed an exclusive deal with Topps baseball cards. So, if you want to pull a Darvish autographed card, you'll need to buy Topps.
