Okay, I may or may not be exaggerating it a bit, but there was nothing pretty about today’s game.
The Royals uniform:
The retro uni still looks crummy. The only uniform powder blue was ever meant for is that of young school girls.
The double Buckner by Swish & Robbie that screwed Joba over:
started off the game rolling… but when the rains came in the 4th, he
got himself into trouble. However, he would’ve easily gotten out of it
[and not doubled his pitch count] had it not been for the ball, off the
bat of Callaspo, that went right through the legs of Swish and right by
Cano, backing him up, which led to 2 unearned runs, which just so
happened to be the difference in the game.
The 8th Inning meltdown that ruined it all.
in the pen: Joba can’t do it all. As much as some fans would like him
to, he can’t start and cover the 8th too. Handle it next time will you?
People complain about Cotton Eyed Joe at the stadium, but Kauffman
Stadium was jamming to the theme of Jeopardy and Entourage.. do the
Royals think they’re clever?
Though the mistake of calling the ball hit by Callaspo a hit was
corrected later, the official scoring today [and pretty much the whole
series] was bogus.
There’s a chance A-Rod will show up to the game at the Trop tomorrow,
but an equal chance that he may not because he supposedly does 8 to 9
hours of rehab a day… Siick..
On Deck: Wang vs. Kazmir at 7:08 tomorrow night [What’s with the start times at the Trop all precisely 8 minutes after the hour?] Let’s hope the Yanks receive some help forgetting about this loss on the plane to Florida with a little entertainment from this guy:
P.S. Beckett is a tool.
