He'll get shelled. IF the Royals are seriously having Anderson start the season opener this year, then they are a joke. Anderson is a 4th or 5th pitcher at best.

And actually anderson is penned in as 4 or 5 on the depth chart right now.

Sorry, Saul. Lubanski is the CF and Lipinski is some polish immigrant the Royals picked up in exchange for a stick of wood...........

Yeah. 3 walks in a row, and blame it on Guy Hansen.

Hey, he can throw a strike.

He worked out of that jam allright. Probably his first live-fire use of the new delivery. Hopefully he can get it worked out before camp is over.

My undestanding is that Hernandez, Lima and Greinke have all asked to be the opening day starter, and Pena hasn't decided yet.

Clipinski is the odds on favorite to get the time honored role of utility infielder. He'll be following in the footsteps of other heros like Luis Matos, Desi Relaford, Luis Ordaz, Mendy Lopez, Donnie Sadler, Wilson Delgado.....hell, I could go on for days.

Dammit! Where's Bob Hamelin! I don't see his name in the box score. When are the real players gonna get started? I'm excited to see what Hipolito Pichardo can bring to the table this summer.

We better be careful not to overuse that, or jsp will make a post telling us it's not funny anymore.



Oh, and todd, the Royals won't lose anywhere close to 115 this year.
They're bad, but not THAT bad.

90 maybe.

I would be willing to place a wager with you on that. They will not lose 115.

Hey, at least they won the game. I had doubts after Anderson walked the first three batters.

I'd like to get in on that bet about 115 losses. That would be a record or something. :)

SCOREBOARD!

Kansas City 6, Texas 4
Preview - Box Score - Recap

March 3, 2005

SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) -- Mike Sweeney showed no lingering effects of the back problems that caused him to miss 110 games the past two seasons by going 3-for-3 in the Kansas City Royals' 6-4 win over the Texas Rangers on Thursday.

Sweeney has struggled with a herniated disk the past two seasons and missed the last five weeks of 2004 with the injury.

``I just want to finish the season with the team and not on the dead list,'' Sweeney said. ``I've been working extremely hard.''

Sweeney singled in the first off Rangers left-hander Kenny Rogers and scored on Matt Stairs' two-out double. Sweeney singled in the third off Chris Young. His fifth inning hit off R.A. Dickey scored Angel Berroa, who led off the inning with a single.

``There's no question Sweeney can hit,'' Royals manager Tony Pena said. ``He's swinging the bat great. He hit a two-run home run (Tuesday) in an intrasquad game on his first swing of the year. Our goal is to keep him in the lineup for 130-140 games.''

Rogers, an 18-game winner last season for the Rangers, gave up a run on two hits in one inning in his initial outing. Rogers turned 40 during the offseason.

``I wasn't really thinking this was my first game at 40,'' Rogers said. ``I guess I can attribute it to luck, ignorance. I guess it really just means I'm a year older. I wasn't thinking about pitching in the spring opener when I said I would pitch, but pitching an opener is always special. It's still early, but I did all right.''

Royals starter Brian Anderson threw 30 pitches in the first inning and walked the bases loaded, but gave up only one run on Richard Hidalgo's sacrifice fly. Hidalgo also homered in the fourth off Chris George, the second of seven Kansas City pitchers.

The Royals snapped a 3-3 tie in the sixth when Chris Clapinski's fielder's choice grounder scored pinch-runner Matt Diaz. Clapinski also doubled in a run in the fourth.

Rangers second baseman Alfonso Soriano is expected to be the designated hitter Friday, but will not play in the field. The Rangers have treated him cautiously this spring as he works his way back from a torn hamstring.
