Teahen is getting on my nerves.You should have heard him on Petro's show today. He was asked about the fans booing Guillen for not hustling on a play, and the first thing out of his mouth was something like, "I kind of agree with the fans. It doesn't take any talent to hustle. That's something you can do at all times to help the team." Talked about how he thinks that's more understandable than booing a guy who's just having trouble with his timing at the plate or something. (I mean, at least a guy who hustles at all times it trying)

He went on to do a little damage control, but I thought it was refreshingly honest.

Don't get me started on that POS Guillen. I respect Teahen, but him slumping is coming at a bad time. Especially with the bases loaded 1 out (I think) down by two freaking runs. Pathetic.

Doesn't mean it was the right play. I would guarantee Greinke would rather have had him on 1st than 3rd to start off the inning. Puts pressure on a lot more of his pitches then which can wear on you.

Grienke's the shit. Damn. He could win 20 games at this rate (ought to be 5-0 now...).He's become a true Major League ace. All he needed, was to get his head screwed on straight.

I feel for the guy... social anxiety, and all that. I'm happy for him. Royal's player or not.
