There were some awesome signs being held up by fans last night

Ever since the Supreme Court outlawed literacy tests for ticket buying, we’ve had to put up with stuff like this.

Frankly, as a fan of the Atlanta Barves, I have no problem with this. Go Barves. And:

Now, there is a chance that this one is not a function of stupidity but, rather, a sarcastic take on the dumb fan response we saw so much of on Twitter after Ellsbury signed with the Yankees. People legitimately calling him a “trader” and such. At least, for her sake, I hope that’s what she was doing.

The Royals recalled infielder Ramon Torres from Triple-A Omaha on Saturday. He didn’t get into a game until starting Thursday night’s game against the Rangers, batting ninth.

In the top of the second inning, facing Austin Bibens-Dirkx, Torres laced a single up the middle. Center fielder Delino DeShields charged in on it, attempting to keep Ryan Goins at second base, but the ball went right past his glove, through his legs, and nearly trickled all the way to the warning track. Goins scored easily and Torres was waved home, too. He managed to narrowly beat the throw, touching home plate with his left hand on a head-first slide.

The play was officially scored a single and a three-base error. Torres wasn’t credited with an RBI on the play. But at least the Royals got two runs out of it.
