I still think KC didn't pitch Grienke today because they wanted to ***** over the White Sox.

Detroit has lost, we are guaranteed at least a tie for 4th, assuming Detroit wins the makeup game that now must be played tomorrow with the White Sox

I'm obviously not holding my breath, but if the Royals somehow put a 7 on the board against the Twins closer, then Gobble would be eligible for one of the cheapest wins in Royals franchise history.

White Sux have to beat Detroit tomorrow and Minnesota on Tuesday just to make the playoffs. Damn.
