Royals owner David Glass denied rumors that he’s attempting to sell the team, telling Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star:

I have never ever talked to anyone about selling the club. Period. I have never had a discussion with anyone about it and I have no interest in doing so.

Dutton chalks up the rumors to “buzz through the blogosphere, fueled by occasional discussion on talk radio” and Glass was unaware of the speculation, saying: “The only guys who hear rumors are you guys in the media” and “I’m surprised to hear that.”
Glass has owned the Royals since 2000, during which time they’ve had one winning season while going 723-1,017 (.416) overall. “I want to be around for the good times,” Glass told Dutton. “I don’t want to miss that. I think we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I think the organization is doing it the right way.”

Neither the Pirates nor the Tigers could manage any offense during Thursday afternoon’s game at PNC Park. That is, until outfielder Corey Dickerson launched a walk-off solo home run off of Alex Wilson with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Dickerson, 28, has been solid for the Pirates for the first month of the season. He’s batting .314/.348/.500 with a pair of home runs, 13 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 92 plate appearances. The Pirates acquired him from the Rays in late February in exchange for journeyman pitcher Daniel Hudson and Single-A infielder Tristan Gray.
