Major League Baseball sent its new social media policy to the Stew inbox on Wednesday. I skimmed through it, so I must have missed the most-excellent part where it encouraged two smaller pitchers to wiggle their way into the pants of a much larger teammate before sending the picture into a world about to double over in laughter.

For the record, that's Everett Teaford (listed at 5-foot-11, 155 pounds) and Tim Collins (5-7, 170) wearing the pants of new Kansas City Royals reliever Jonathan Broxton (6-4, 300). The clubhouse mischief took place on Thursday morning in Surprise, signaling the official start of everyone going stir crazy at spring training.

At least I hope it was just mischief. Because if the Royals are trying to take over the league by creating a super pitcher that can handle twice the workload, it's a terrible idea to go with two lefties.

Spring training has started, so don't miss a beat ...
