46 Losses so far, only 75 to go.

The Royals cant be cocky tonight, the Angels are a pretty bad team. We need to bring our "F" game if we want to earn that defeat tonight.

Any guesses how we could possibly lose this one?

Weaver is an idiot.

Mark Teahen... woooo. Or something. He's making some things happen lately.

Supposedly Reggie Sanders told the Angels announcers that he doesn't think he'll be a Royal much longer. Apparently a ton of teams have called about him... there's one advantage to baseball having much greater parity the last couple years, we're literally about the only team in a "seller" mode now because most teams are still hanging around.

The Royals basically gave 3 runs away, and wouldnt ya know it, thats the difference. The Angels came in playing unimpressively as expected, but the Royals dug deep into their bag of suckage and pulled out the hellish trifecta: A screwup by the left fielder to allow a cheap double, a complete defensive whiff by the pitcher on a routine ball up the middle, all capped off by a runner stealing second (and later scoring because of it) despite the call of a pitchout.

There's been a lot of bad teams over the years, but our Royals are truely craptastic.

Pretty good first start for duckworth imo.
