***Connor Moylan asks if the playoff hopes of the Kansas City Royals lie on the shoulders of Eric Hosmer.

***Pitching prospect Brandon Maurer threw five shutout innings for the Seattle Mariners yesterday. More about him later today in a Prospect Note.

***Crazy Predictions for 2013 Part One, brought to you by Colonel "Bat" Guano.
