    Poor R.A. Dickey. The Royals lit him up.

    For the 2015 season, the Blue Jays led MLB in the number of occurrences of having the opposition starter out of the game before the end of the 3rd inning (16 times).

    The Twins and Indians tied for second most (10 times). The Reds (9 times) were part of a four way tie for 4th.

    Other NL Central teams: Cards (8 times; three way tie for 8th); Cubs (7 times; six way tie for 11th); Brewers (4 times; 6 way tie, including the Royals, for 23rd); Pirates (3 times; tied with Dbacks for 29th (lowest number).

    12-2 & it’s mostly all small liners, bloopers & grounders. They’re putting on a clinic. Royals are like a run factory. It’s relentless.

    Why would anyone still pitch to Daniel Murphy? He’s 2015’s David Freese.
