Starting for KC - Jeff Francis, LHP 0-0, 2.61 ERA

Starting for Seattle - Michael Pineda, RHP 1-1, 2.70 ERA

Ryan Lefevere said yesterday this game will not be on Fox Sports. Does that mean it wont be on TV period? I'm hoping to watch on mlb.tv

I haven't seen Pineda pitch, but he is supposed to be the next big thing. Hopefully we can scratch across a couple of runs and get another good performance from Francis. How many years has it been since we swept a 4 game series?

I know, if my memory serves, its says in the bible somewhere that alnorth has dominion over the fish in the sea and all Royals game threads at chiefsplanet.com.

I should be ashamed!

its fine, what I do requires a nutty level of OCD. I was thinking about not starting the thread today and just listening to the game.

One easy thing he could possibly do is add a widget to the OP.

For example, here's the embed code for ESPN's Royals widget:

<*object width="300" height="387" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://a.espncdn.com/community/widgets/swfs/team.swf" ><*param name="flashVars" value="teamID=7&amp;pid=espnteammlb_1303053495141492208&amp;share=embed&amp;sport=mlb" ><*param name="movie" value="http://a.espncdn.com/community/widgets/swfs/team.swf" ><*param name="wmode" value="transparent"><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"><*param name="allowNetworking" value="all"><*/object>

Delete those 6 stars (*), and you get this:

<object width="300" height="387" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://a.espncdn.com/community/widgets/swfs/team.swf" ><param name="flashVars" value="teamID=7&amp;pid=espnteammlb_1303053495141492208&amp;share=embed&amp;sport=mlb" ><param name="movie" value="http://a.espncdn.com/community/widgets/swfs/team.swf" ><param name="wmode" value="transparent"><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"><param name="allowNetworking" value="all"></object>

3. Gordon, LF
4. Butler, 1B
5. Ka'aihue, DH
6. Frenchy, RF
7. Betemit, 3B

Cabrera has the day off, Dyson is playing again, Butler is in the field, and its Betemit instead of Aviles today.

Thats the advantage of being a strike-thrower who doesn't (or can't so doesn't try) hit corners. If the other team doesn't hit it, you'll have quick innings and last a while.

The disadvantage is obvious.

Wood should've walked the guy to get the bases loaded for a DP. He through a meatball right down the middle instead. I'm not sure I blame Yost too much for this decision. We're in the middle of a long stretch with no days off, so you can't just throw Crow in there.

Wow. everyone including the ump assumed it was going to be an easy out, Getz ran it out, Mariners loafed a bit, ump fired his pre-loaded out call.

We should have gotten at least one run on that groundout even if you assumed Butler would not have gotten a hit.

Normally I'd agree, but the Royals have 3 hits for the game I think. If your offense can't do anything for 8 innings, no reason to think it'll do anything in the 9th.

We have a weak lineup out there today, but everyone's available to pinch-hit. We could pinch-hit for Kila and maybe Brayan, so we'll have a solid chance.

Its unlikely, though.

Limp wrists one down to 2nd. What I wouldn't give for a catcher who could fucking hit.

The Royals lose mostly thanks to botched call in 8th that cost them a run. Only once all year did they not have winning run at plate in 9th. less than 10 seconds ago via TweetDeck

Did Yost even challenged the 1st base ump for that botched call?

(glass half full): Cleveland is not winning the AL Central. Their hot start is a total mirage. (yes I know the same could be said about us, but this is a Royals daydream, and I'm allowed to selectively dismiss the Indians without doing the same for KC)

So, ignoring Cleveland, Chicago also lost today. So, we're still 3 games up, woo!

whats the point of that? If the ump is not going to change his mind, go back to the dugout.

I NEVER have respect for a manager who goes out there with the intent to get tossed, unless I think he really did lose his mind. And a manager who loses his mind often shouldn't be a manager.

Well I'm having a little problem with the inconsistencies of this umpiring crew and they need to get their shit together, especially if they think we're just the lowly Kansas Shitty Royals. I would had called them on it and let them know that we ain't shitty.

We were completely robbed in the 8th. Call in the 9th was correct, but who cares, that call in the 8th took a run away from us. The game should have been tied.
