You have to feel for KC Royals fans. Their team was a trendy pick to contend in the AL Central but currently sits in fourth place. Their wunderkind first baseman Eric Hosmer is hitting .201/.265/.339. And to top it off they have to listen to Rex Hudler call the games.

At least they can enjoy a pretty safety squeeze once in a while.

Dandy Squeeze Score (what’s this?): +2 (+1, success; +1, tie game)
