I am convinced the radar gun at the K is juiced. Hoch has yet to throw a pitch under 96.

He's always about 92.

The gun at the K, much like the management of all KC professional teams, is a farce.

Also, its not like I am always a pessimist always predicting fail. When a routine play is developing, I expect the royals to record the out. Yeah, the defense sucks, but even a horrible defense converts over 95% of easy plays.

Still, for some illogical reason (Butler isn't bad) I just knew that popup wasn't going to be caught.

In what little he's thrown this year (4IP), he only gave up 1 run and he doesn't walk people.

Just saw a good question asked elsewhere. Anyone hear an explanation on why Span wasn't called out for an infield fly in the 12th? The run still would have scored, but it probably would have been a 1-run inning rather than 2.

Was the fly extremely low and more like a soft looper?

Just saw a good question asked elsewhere. Anyone hear an explanation on why Span wasn't called out for an infield fly in the 12th? The run still would have scored, but it probably would have been a 1-run inning rather than 2.

Was the fly extremely shallow and more like a soft looper?

It wasn't routine.

I would agree except it was the call of the same dumb fuck that hosed us at the end of the game. He wanted the game over.

Nope. I always use my name if I call in. Why? What did he say?

I forget the details. It was a solid call.

But he ended with an MSNBC/Obama slam, so it made me wonder.

What did Trey say during his post-game interview?

"I didn't really give a shit about the call."

Actually, that is what Ron Gardenhire said.

As you might imagine, Twins manager Ron Gardenhire was not terribly concerned.

"I've got too many things to worry about than that. All I saw was the umpire said out," Gardenhire said. "We're shaking hands and I don't really give a flip whether he's out or safe."
