Photo: Mississippi State Is Pumped About The SEC Network, Playing Network On Davis Wade Stadium Video Board

How excited are SEC fans and programs about their new SEC Network? Mississippi State decided that your standard 40 or 50 inch flat screen was not good enough for the launch of the new channel. SEC Network began broadcasting just minutes ago, and its already playing on the 112-foot wide video board at Davis Wade Stadium. The @SECNetwork is here! #HailState pic.twitter.com/tp3XvPg47m...

Bullpen Report: Week 20

If there was a NBA Jam version for relievers, it would go to the Royals bullpen.  They are the hottest team since sliced pimento loaf, and as of this typing, are finding themselves tops in the AL Central.  I have said it before and I will say it again-- play the hot hand until it slaps you where it shouldn't.  They are led recently and not recently, as in all year, by Wade...

Royals Face Tough Bullpen Decision

If the Kansas City Royals have a lead in the sixth inning, it's a comforting sight to look into their bullpen and see both Greg Holland and Wade Davis beginning to stretch out as they know the eighth and ninth innings will be their time to control the game. When they come in, the game is more often than not, simply over. I saw people leaving Kauffman Stadium last week as the...

The bullpen is your home, Wade Davis

As recently as this last spring, Wade Davis has expressed his desire to be a starting pitcher. It's not going to happen, Mr. Davis. First, you're not good enough as a starter and secondly, you are too darned good as a relief pitcher. The difference between the two variations of Wade Davis is remarkable and if the Royals' reliever wants a long, long career in baseball...

He might not know exactly why, but Royals' Davis is dominating in relief

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Same approach, different results. Very different results. Royals right-hander Wade Davis swears he's not pitching much differently as a reliever than he was a starter. Nor does he get more "amped up" coming out of the bullpen than he did when he was a starter. "If anything," Davis says, "I was more amped up as a starter. Seriously...

Grieving Davis returns to stop the Marlins

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Royals right-hander Wade Davis wasn't sure how he'd feel once he returned to the mound after being away from the team for over a week. Davis was away on bereavement leave, grieving the loss of his stepbrother, Dustin Huguley, 25, who passed away unexpectedly Aug. 3 in Florida. Davis did not speak of his personal loss, though manager Ned Yost had indicated...

Royals' Wade Davis may miss Wednesday start

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Royals right-hander Wade Davis seems likely to miss his next scheduled start Wednesday against the Twins after the loss of his stepbrother, who collapsed and died during a softball game last weekend. Davis was told his stepbrother, Dustin Huguley, died in Florida on Saturday as the Royals were playing the Mets. Davis had pitched five innings in a no-decision...

Wade Davis needs to return to the Pen

by John Viril— Wade Davis is the worst starting pitcher in baseball. He just got bombed in New York in Kansas City’s 8-1 loss to the Yankees. He’s 4-8 on the year. Most importantly, his atrocious 5.89 ERA is higher than any other MLB starter. On the surface, it’s hard to explain Davis’ poor performance. His strikeout rate has zoomed since last season’s stint in the bullpen...

Wade Davis: The Best Case Scenario

In the wake of the Kansas City and Tampa Bay trade from Sunday night, many have speculated upon — and Jeff Sullivan has considered with something not unlike aplomb — how Wade Davis might perform in his return to the starting roation (i.e. the role he’s likely to assume with the Royals). As Sullivan notes, Davis was a not particularly excellent starter from 2009 to 2011. Then...
