Yordano Ventura Is Baseball's Surliest Little Shit

Kansas City Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura has made four starts this season, and he has yet to leave one under his own volition.

Some, however, have begun the hand-wringing that maybe Gordon could have scored, had he sprinted the entire way and been sent from third. We're here to… » 10/30/14 12:04am 10/30/14 12:04am
