re: MLB: ONE WEEK!
Royals talking with Dempster and Kyle Lohse. I have also read on ESPN Insider that they're discussing a potential trade with Tampa Bay. The deal would include top hitting prospect Wil Myers for James Shields. It would be ill advised, but hey, KC has to strengthen their reputation before making a big splash signing within the next 5-10 years. They don't have the "good will" amongst free agents, nor do they have the money.
The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposing ideas in mind at the same time.
