    Mother Nature is too fine a lady to cheer for those rubes.

    Is there anyway for MLB to schedule games only in domed stadiums and warm weather cities for the first month? Today is more of an outlier with the RC as games at the dome never get postponed. Although, even Texas was cold last weekend so I don't know.

    Nice quick inning by Garcia. Walk eliminated by a pick off. Not many pitches. Bodes well for a double header day.

    His first at bat was not memorable...

    Man, I thought Smoak nailed that one.

    Solarte sure got that one!

    I have the game on Rogers Anyplace TV at work and the MLB app sent an alert to my phone about Solarte's homerun two seconds before he hit it!

    Is there anything more representative of the Royals playing the Jays then a broken bat bloop single?

    Garcia not sharp at all in the second inning.

    Bases loaded and none out and Garcia allows just one run. Hopefully he settles down.

    Alcides Escobar, one of the worst leadoff hitters ever, but yet Yost kept him at that spot for years and that’s including their World Series runs.

    Never change, Yost. Never change.

    Nice swing by Grichuk. Maybe he's coming out of this funk.

    Serious questions, who is worse this year: Tampa or Kansas City?

    I look at the Royals lineup and it's scary, as in scary bad.

    Come August, I expect Kansas City to be much worse as they’ll likely trade any veteran that has some sort of value. At least with Tampa Bay, they’ll likely have some young and exciting players in their lineup.

    The Royals front office should be tarred and feathered in front of city hall for not trading Cain, Moustakas, Hosmer, Vargas, Herrera, etc last deadline to get some value back rather than lose them for a draft pick. At least they will have another chance to deal Moustakas and Herrera, but trying to “go for it one last time” last season was utterly foolish.

    The Rays lineup doesn't look much better right now, but I can see the Rays getting more pitching despite the injuries.

    FFS Garcia. Two out and Moustakas up, their only threat. Don't even give him anything to hit...

    That was something I didn't understand either. Their run was obviously over. Re-stock for the rebuild. Made no sense to keep them all.

    And now Lucas Duda. Garcia clearly doesn't have it. This could be an ugly day if he gets chased early.

    He shouldn't have had anything to worry about since Moustakas and Duda are both absolutely terrible against lefties. Ugh.

    Great at bat by Grichuk on his homerun. Boyer threw him a slider over the middle of the plate called for a strike. You could see the look on Grichuk's face was clearly: "Throw that to me again please."

    Man, Boyer's ERA was over 23.00 when he came into the game. It was worse when he left.

    Nice to see former Ontario Premier Ernie Eves in the front row at the game today.
