Painting the Black: Danny Duffy's Bestie

R.J. Anderson

How much of Danny Duffy's breakout season can be traced to James Shields?

On July 21st, the Royals dropped to eight games below the Tigers, following a fourth consecutive loss. The negativity that so often envelopes Kansas City baseball returned. Fans checked prospect lists rather than the standings in preparation for the trade deadline, and some even rationalized that a fruitful haul would be preferable to a spot in the Wild Card game. That and other beliefs about this year's team have since been challenged, as the Royals have claimed first place after winning 17 of their past 21 games.

The Royals buy low on a veteran with a history of success, the Twins get a nice return, Jerome Williams is on the move again, and other moves.

Deducing which development excites St. Louis fans more requires no poll, as Taveras is not just a fascinating young talent with star potential, but a fascinating young talent with star potential who fans feel has been mismanaged.
