This series will be a good barometer of where the team is. I think they need to win at least one to keep the momentum going. Defending American League champs on the road is a tough weekend draw, but winning at least one, and being in the game late all weekend would be a positive sign for this young team.

Hope Francis can get a win tonight. He has pitched well but the Royals have come up short in his starts so far.

Ho-lee crap! Vegas is giving us NO respect at all.

Moneyline:

KC +155
TEX -170

Jesus, Come on! I know we're on a bit of a flukey start, but I woulda thought we weren't considered to be THAT god-damned bad. I know its on the road at Texas, but Francis has been pretty decent so far. Don't you think we could at least put up a fight?

edit: wow, I just looked at the other games, we're the second-biggest underdog in all of baseball today, behind only Houston!

This is weird. The moneyline has the Royals as an unbelievably large underdog, but the runline is only + 1.5, same as almost every other underdog.

I think there's just a lot of money bet on Texas to win right now and the casinos are trying to entice KC bets to win.

Fine, I haven't done it in over 3 years, but I've just put a little money on this game. It's on! Francis, you better not suck tonight or I'll be pissed.

Funny you should post this. I made my first bets of the year today and KC +155 was one of them.

Funny you should post this. I made my first bets of the year today and KC +155 was one of them.

sweet. Well, I've got $100 on this. If it was even or just +110 I wouldn't do it, but $100 to win $155 looked pretty good to me.

oh, and I finally figured out the runline. Every underdog is +1.5, they just adjust the payout from there.

Even then though, the Royals aren't as big of an underdog comparably to other underdog teams when you give them 1.5 runs as when you look at the moneyline for the royals to win at texas straight-up. Thats weird. Give the royals 1.5 runs and you don't get a good deal, but talk about them winning or losing straight-up and there's this huge bonus for betting on the royals. That means the gamblers think the royals have little chance to get blown out, but a terrific chance to lose by 1 run. Why?

put another way, 100 to win 155 implies that we have a 100/(100+155) = 39% chance of winning. There's also a small pad in there for vig so the casino makes money, so call it 36%

In other words, if we played this game repeatedly 162 times, we'd lose 104 games. That seems a little harsh given what we now know.

There is one and only one thing Kila had been known for, and that was a high-OBP walking machine. That bat was shameful, 2 balls out of the strike zone he hacked at in a key situation. Its time for Hosmer

This. He is kila-ing us.

They were talking up Robinson this morning on 610. Saying how great is minor league resume is. I kinda thought, isn't that what we said about Kila?

They are hoping Kila comes around so we can trade his ass for a mop-up reliever.
