> Instead, they will pitch against live hitters in early workouts. "I don't think, down there (in the bullpen), that we're accomplishing anything," manager Tony Muser said. "There's no hitter up there. There's no pressure."

OK Tony, if you say so. Forged in the furnace of early afternoon sessions, these guys will be much harder than they've ever been before...

Live batters might help Rick Ankiel, but unless the batters are will be trying to work a walk out of them these pichers aren't going to be feeling any heat. (Of course this is the Royals, so practice taking pitches might not hurt either.)
