Ned Yost loves the bees

This story actually starts at a Royals/Angels spring training game last year, during which bees took over:

Those bees were poisoned and Kansas City manager Ned Yost was none too happy about it at the time, calling the disposal method "mass bee genocide".

Well, the bees struck back with a vengeance today. Luckily for Yost and bee lovers everywhere, there was a beekeeper in the stands who jumped in to save the day:

After the game, Yost paid the bees the highest compliment, comparing them to his World Champion squad:

MLB veteran utility player Skip Schumaker has retired from professional baseball, the San Diego Padres announced Wednesday.

The decision comes one month after Schumaker, 36, signed a minor league deal with the Padres before going 0 for 8 in his spring training plate appearances this month.

“His career was lived with class and dignity,” Padres manager Andy Green said. “He led by example and I have nothing but respect for him.”

Schumaker, who made his MLB debut with the Cardinals in 2005, spent eight seasons in St. Louis before playing one year with the Los Angeles Dodgers and two with the Cincinnati Reds.

For his career, Schumaker, a second baseman and outfielder, batted .278 with 28 home runs and 284 RBIs.

Chicago Bulls swingman Jimmy Butler will seek a second opinion on his injured left knee, according to multiple reports.

Butler, who returned to Chicago’s lineup Saturday against the Rockets after missing nearly one month with a knee strain, missed Monday’s matchup with the Bucks after re-aggravating the injury.

According to Bleacher Report’s Sean Highkin, the 26-year-old will travel to Alabama to see Dr. James Andrews for the second opinion and miss Thursday’s game against the Spurs, while also being questionable for Friday’s contest against the Heat. CSN Chicago’s Vincent Goodwill reports that it was Butler’s idea to see Andrews.

In 49 games this season, his fifth in the NBA, Butler is averaging 22.4 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game.
