Foreclosure activity in June dropped to its lowest level nationwide since before the housing bubble started to burst nearly eight years ago, a new report said Thursday. The number of homes facing bank auctions, default notices and scheduled auctions totaled 107,194 last month, down 16 percent from June 2013, according to RealtyTrac, a housing industry research firm based in Irvine, Calif. June's total was the lowest since July 2006, the company said. "Nationwide foreclosure activity in June reached an important milestone," Daren Blomquist, a RealtyTrac vice president, said in a prepared statement.

The fastest man in baseball drives with caution. When Terrance Gore was a sophomore in high school, his mother spent about $500 on a 1980 El Camino, and her son restored it with care. He painted the car candy apple red, upgraded the engine and installed 22-inch chrome rims. “That's my baby,” Gore said. He treats his wheels with reverence. The vehicle resides under cover at his home in Georgia. No one is allowed to drive it. Gore expected to return home to his car after the minor-league season ended.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- It's possible that the Kansas City Royals will go into the American League Championship Series against the Orioles with the same 25-man roster, including 11 pitchers, they used to sweep the Los Angeles Angels in the Division Series. And it appears likely that Kansas City rookie right-hander Yordano Ventura will be the Game 2 starter Saturday after right-hander James Shields pitches in Game 1. “We're pretty set with Ventura in the second game,” Royals manager Ned Yost said.

KANSAS CITY -- No surprise here. James Shields is expected to start the first game of the American League Championship Series for the Kansas City Royals against the Orioles on Friday at Camden Yards. “Friday is Shields' fifth day,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “I imagine he'll be our starter. I'm almost certain Shields will start Game 1.” The Royals' three-game sweep of the Los Angeles Angels in an American League Division Series, completed with Sunday's 8-3 victory at Kauffman Stadium, has allowed Yost the luxury of setting up his pitching order as he sees fit.

Former Maryland wide receiver Nigel King has transferred to Kansas, according to multiple reports and the player's Twitter page . King already graduated, so he will be eligible to play immediately as long as he enters into a graduate program that is not offered at Maryland. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound King had 33 catches for 450 yards and four touchdowns as a sophomore last season. But the Terps deep at wide receiver, and King was set to enter preseason camp as a backup. King will compete for one of Kansas' two outside receiver jobs.

The thing that bothered me about the Kansas City fans' treatment of Robinson Cano at the Home Run Derby wasn't the boos. I thought it was, until I realized that if I were a Kansas City fan, I would've booed too. I think the thing that really bothered me about the Home Run Derby, the thing that made me and others squirm in our couches on Monday, was that it wasn't fun. They yelled at his mother in the bathroom. His dad was dead serious. Cano wasn't laughing. And sure the fans in Kansas City were laughing, but they were laughing at Cano's misfortune, which is certainly their right as paying fans, but it wasn't fun, and forgive me but sports are still supposed to be fun, right?
