With the injuries mounting, the Royals are scrambling to fill all their roster spots.

Alex Gordon has a "a tear in the upper right side of his leg" which is going to sideline him for at least a couple of weeks. So, Hillman decided to move Mark Teahen back to third base, which is his best defensive position and something I've been advocating since before the season started. (I'd like to see Gordon be the everyday first baseman.) Of course, Teahen hasn't played third base since 2006, so it'll be interesting to see how he handles the transition.

Ron Mahay was placed on the DL to make room for Kyle Davies, who will start tonight and hopefully eat a few innings.

Batting STance Guy on you tube just did a video on the Royals. Its hilarious. He nails Bo Jackson, George Brett, and others. Super!
