What awful timing. Missed opportunity for ratings, I'd think.

Nope, just another K with Gordon just staring a the pitch and not defending the zone.

Kila now hitting .167 with no HRs and 1 RBI.

Looks like it's just about time to close the book on him. I give him til the end of this game to do something, otherwise ...

He singled. HE SINGLED!

Up to .286 now.

Great single by Kila there. He was fooled by the breaking ball but still got the bat on the ball with enough power to get it up the middle.

Kila and Brayan really should start every game for the rest of the season...or at least get a vast majority of the starts, in Pena's case.

You know, Bloomy and Blancy and Mitchie can single, though.

WHERE ARE THOSE HOME RUNS, POLYNESIAN POWERMAN?

While I agree w/ you, Pena really sucks too. Not any worse than Kendall though probably. And not old.

Well... Pena just made a nice throw to second to throw out Cust who was trying to steal. Kendell would have put it in left center...

on his first at bat he dropped his bat near the ball and bugeater and buck bailed out of the stands and began fighting over who was going down

First tough play for Kila at first and he failed, allowing a run to score.

Why did he throw the ball?

He probably could've just run down to 2b and tagged him before Cust got there.

That almost had to be a botched hit and run.

trying to think back to this morning...

I'm wondering if the Royals called me to get my thoughts on today's starting lineup, and then I blacked out with temporary amnesia after telling them what to do.

That one is on Ned. Sullivan is bleeding out of his ass, had thrown 110 pitches and he leaves him in to face another batter.. Shazam! 2 run double. DUMBFUCK!:cuss:

To be fair, he was pitching fine. 2 errors made the inning longer than it should have been and Maier should have caught that ball but he was too scared of the wall.

Yeah, but 1 error was his own, he'd thrown 25 pitches in the inning, and they got 3 hits and walk off of him, while only recording 1 out. He should have been pulled.

Just judging on Gamecast, but did Kila give that one a pretty good ride?

Looking at ESPN gamecast, Kila just flied out and the ball landed on the wall on their little gameboard. It totally looked like a homer.

Kila robbed of a double there.

Caught maybe a foot from the top of the wall.

looked like a nice at-bat (isnt it hilarious how we are eagerly micro-analyzing Kila now?). Quickly fell behind 0-2, fouled off pitches to work it to 2-2, then took a shot at the right field foul pole.

It's way WAY early, but at least Kila made him throw some pitches there...fouled some off, and gave it a good ride.

Yes, it is hilarious. But as Royals fans, we tend to get excited when somebody besides Kendall, Betancourt, Bloomquist, etc. gets to play.

The heart of the order resurrecting Dennis Eckersley in the 9th.

3-4-5 all strikeout. That is fucking pathetic.

The Royals catcher of the future went 4-4 in Winston-Salem last night against the Dash. A couple of doubles.

He didn't start playing catcher until his senior year in high school, so I hope the Royals are patient and let him play at this premium position....

I remember the time that Gubicza struck out Reggie Jackson, Jose Canseco, and Mark McGwire in the 9th inning.

Just sayin.
