    LEADING OFF: Royals all set to watch eclipse on day off

    A look at what's happening all around the majors today: TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE PARK The Kansas City Royals are off, and several of them already have big plans for their day away from Kauffman Stadium — they're going to watch the eclipse.

    The American League Wild Card race is decidedly blah. Eight teams are within five games of the final post-season spot, none of which is more than four games over .500. The Wild Card race is a marathon of the mediocre, a contest of the cromulent, a battle of the beige, a matchup of the "meh." The Angels are tied for the lead in the race so far, despite scoring the third-fewest runs in the league, with just two hitters in their lineup above league-average. The Twins are tied with them despite the second-worst ERA in the league, having already traded away Jamie Garcia. The only team with a positive run differential in the race is the Texas Rangers, who traded their best pitcher, Yu Darvish, to the
