DUDE, YOU'RE MAKIN' MAJOR LEAGUE MEAL MONEY...:

Peralta a sure thing for Royals (Pitcher, whose career has been more suspect than prospect, has become what Bell calls a 'valuable guy.' (BOB DUTTON, 3/30/07, The Kansas City Star

Royals reliever Joel Peralta has it figured out, he believes. It was a Dominican delicacy that knocked him for a loop last month and resulted in a hospital stay that included a strength-zapping spinal tap.

"Food poisoning," he said. "Because all of the tests that they did to me, they didn't find anything wrong. I know what it was -- it was some part of the cow that I'd never had before."

Hey ... got to ask.

"The tail," Peralta revealed.

Not as bad as you thought, right?

Bad enough, though. It put Peralta, who was born and still lives in Bonao, Dominican Republic, on the shelf for more than a week in a camp where he needed to pitch well to retain his job in a revamped bullpen.
