I think most of us did anyways. I was pretty upset and just dropped a few F words here and there.

But I just gotta keep reminding me, that we're just only halfway of the season, so the Royals got plenty of time to get out of the cellar.

yea, it's not really even about the wins and losses. It's about playing smart and maximizing what we do have. I just get irritated when it seems like it's the coach that is a liability. No excuse for that imo.

I dont know, if he suddenly cranks out 20 consecutive saves without a hit, I might have a slightly positive opinion on the guy... but yeah, that aint likely.

I just think they make us stronger... especially Grudz. Sweeney was doing pretty well and I like Sanders vet leadership. I realize the young guys need to play a lot as we "get ready for the future" but they need backups and days off too... and there's nothing wrong with trade bait getting some playing time now that you mention it.

sweeney will send Butler to the bench
Grud will send German to the bench
Sanders will cost playing time for Brown,Gathright and Costa will be sent back down.
