Tony Pena Jr. can't whack off well, right now.

Mike Jacobs just hit another late-inning junk homer.

Kyle Farnsworth just gave up another homerun.

Not the best outcome, but not a bad start. Baseball, more than any other sport, is heavily influenced by pure dumb luck.

Carmona still tossed over 20 pitches that inning.

Not sure what Meche's gig is this year? He does good then all the sudden he gives up the big innings. Maybe he has been in KC too long and has let the Chiefs run off on him?

Jacobs is Jim Thome version 1.5.

He can't field and he still can't hit quite that good.

That being said, attitude wise the guy is a great guy to have on your team.

It doesn't hurt that he'll probably hit 30 hrs, we desperatly need that power.

It looks rediculous to me, but Jamey Wright technically qualifies for a Hold (at least one out recorded without giving up the lead in a save situation) unless the official scorer decides he was ineffective.

Ponson gets unfairly tagged with a blown save even after inducing a blown double-play ball.
