Well, I'm excited to see Bannister take on the Rangers! I figured I'd let alnorth, God bless him, have the day off, too.

Royals are now tied for 2nd place in the division! Guillen is turning it all around (leading the team in RBIs)! We're going for a winning record on the road! We've got five regulars hitting above or very close to .300 (DeJesus, Grudz, Gordon, Gload, Butler)! We've got Soria!

Scouting Reports for today:

Game time: 7:05pm

Royals: Bannister had gone 18 innings without giving up an earned run at Kaufman Stadium before the Indians' David Dellucci hit a solo home run off him last Thursday. Bannister allowed another run that inning, which was all Cleveland needed for a 2-0 victory. Those runs came an inning after Bannister got drilled in the shin by a line drive, an injury that severely affected his performance, he said. Bannister's latest performance came on the heels of his worst one of the season, a loss against Oakland in which he gave up five runs in five innings.

Rangers: Millwood, coming off a Friday start against the Twins in which he coughed up five runs in the first three innings, will be making his ninth career start against Kansas City. In the previous eight, the right-hander posted a 4-3 record with a 4.66 ERA, as Royals hitters have batted a collective .303 against him with four home runs in 46 1/3 innings.

What is the coverage map of FSMW?

I have two channels for FSMW, anytime the Royals are on, it gets blacked out.. But I get the Reds and Cardinals?

WTF? I live in OKC, always get the Rangers?

Joey Gathwright a little chopper to second and is thrown out at first. One down, here comes Grudz. Grudz flies out to center right away.

We brutalized Millwood last season. May the run continue.

04-30-2008, 07:10 PM
And here's DeJesus. He crushes it to short, but a good defensive play gets him at first. Three up, three down.

Kinsler grounds out to Pena after taking Bannister for about 8-9 pitches. One down.

Dammn!! Milton Bradley hits a homerun. 2-0 Texas.

Jenson71

This is not a good inning for Bannister. He has 30 pitches already.

Jenson71
04-30-2008, 07:23 PM
Finally, a strikeout. Inning over.

Buck pops up for the out. The Rangers almost almost dropped it by running into eachother, but God hates the Royals. Bleh.

Okay, bottom of the 2nd. Fly out to Teahen in Right. One down.

Ugh. 9th batter gets a hit, is on first for Kinsler.

Jenson71
04-30-2008, 07:42 PM
Kinsler's pop up to center falls short for a hit. The world sucks. Men on corners.

Scoreboard. 7-0 Game Over.

On a side note, did you see that baby Milton Bradley throw his helmet down after he failed on a single and walked to the 1st base just after his teamate hit a Grand Slam. What a f*ckin baby.

This one isn't over yet. With a decent rally and some good D we could pull this one out.

No reason for Yabuta to be in there in the 7th (or 8th [or 9th]).

Most pitchers also don't give up 3 homeruns in 3 innings.

Sounds to me like he didn't have his usual good control. His stuff isn't good enough to get by without it. He'll bounce back.

Perhaps Banny is affected by that drive to his shin more that the Royals are letting on?

Just another pitching prospect...who might not ever live up to their potential.
