Wade Davis Deserves Better Than Some Footnote

On August 24, 2013, the most popular movie at the box office was Iron Man 3. The troublesome pop song Blurred Lines was all over our radios.

Long shot or not, Wade Davis still thinks he can be a starter

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- For now, right-hander Wade Davis still considers himself a viable candidate for the Royals' rotation.
