This is a pretty funny article about today's Royals game, although it was written by a geek and not a baseball fan, it's based on the idea of illegally retransmitting the game without the express written consent of MLB.

Here's the best bit: "Somebody from some team (the Red Sox) hit another home run this inning, and despite all these home runs and hits for the opposing team, the Royals continued to let their starter, Darrel May, throw balls for the Red Sox to swing at. I think Kansas City manager Tony Pena's reasoning behind this could be best summed up with a quote from a recent press conference:

SPORTS WRITER: "Tony, why do you let your starting pitchers continue to play even after they give up 20 consecutive runs in an inning?"
TONY PENA: (Clutching a dead chicken in his mouth and throwing oranges at a chalkboard) "¡ESTOY LOCO, COMO HORMIGAS!" (Lights self on fire and jumps out window)"

"Im just terrible, you can find a high school kid and a A ball pitcher, call them up and they'd prob do better than me"
