    If you have XM, I found it to be much more reliable and easy to use over the MLB.com feed.
    ive never had a problem listening to mlb.com since i started a few years ago

    Moore already might be learning how bad Glass is. Word is Glass, despite getting $30 million in revenue handouts, is balking at Hochevar's asking price, making Stubbs more likely.

    Huh? Stubbs more likely for the Royals? I know Hochevar's stock is rising, but if Moore (or the dude writing this article) thinks that Stubbs is worth the #1 overall pick at this point, he needs to cut down on the :all_cohol

    Signability is probably the issue here.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Re: MLB Draft

    if they make stubbs the no 1 pick, ill be extremely happy cause it bumps all the top pitchers down a spot, making more available for us, but on the same end, their owner should be forced out of baseball

    Why it is all a crap shoot any ways and if Stubbs becomes a stud with the bat they should make him the comiss..

    It's a crapshoot, but it's rare for a guy who profiles like Stubbs to develop into a guy worth the #1 overall pick. When I look at him, I see a guy who could become a good defensive CF who steals plenty of bases and has lots of power. That's good. But, his idea of the strike zone is pretty bad. It is very, very rare for some one to drastically change their K numbers. When I see him, I think Preston Wilson. Guys like Miller, Longoria, and Hochevar are more ready to contribute and better picks.

    The Royals are already one of the most pitiful teams in baseball and their owner has descended into the ranks of names like Bidwell and Wirtz as the worst owners in professional sports. Their farm system does not offer much hope as it is, especially in regards to pitching. This team needs all the help it can get; being cheap in the draft isn't going to help. They did end up drafting and signing Alex Gordon...so maybe they won't be penny-pinchers.

    Then again, this could very well end up like Bullington over Upton.
