Well give Sanders credit he flied out this time instead of a K. Too bad it was on the very first pitch.

I like his heart but he really dropped off from the way he started the season.

How much I hate to say it, it doesn't matter when you're down by 6 with one out left.

Detroit is brutal. Everybody seems to assume that the White Sox are gonna pass them, I don't know about that. I think Detroit might actually have better pitching. Something nobody thought possible at the beginning of the year.

Nice to see MacDougal get in a good inning too.

We did play 2 good close games vs the best team in baseball imo. We atleast battled the first two games and probably could've won them. Verlander is just nasty, nuff said.

Their pitching is sick. They were talking about them during the post game show tonight. It's hard to believe that have produced that many outstanding arms from their own system.

They've got more too. Maroth gets hurt, they plug in that Zach Miner and he has been outstanding. Plus Detroit had one of the starting pitchers in the futures game. They aren't going away any time soon.

Seems the two first games in the series kinda took the wind out of the sails a bit...

It looks as though the Royals won't be competing for a very long time, we are at the very least 3-5 years behind the Tigers and White Sox and 2 years behind the Twins.

Wasnt Detroit a 100 game loser just like 2-3 years ago?

Yeah, they came within I believe 1 game of tying the 62 Mets for the worst record of all time, Bonderman and Muroth both lost 19 and 20 games respectivley, however they drafted very well and have a a glut of pitching at the major league level and the minor league level. Like I said we are 3-5 years behind them in the pitching department (competing overall).

Ok aside from the shut out last night they had to depend on errors to be committed to beat us. One game even making them have to put up 10 runs.

We hit Bonderman and Rogers both. We are playing kick ass right now.

Detroit is just a bad ass team with deeper and better pitching than us.

Just wanted to say those uni's kicked ass. We should wear them more.
