I may wear my Salvy Jersey today whilst I watch the game. He has eclipsed Hos as my favorite player for now. Even though Hos is raking so far in August.

I would also like to put out a PSA - Hosmer has surpassed Frenchy:

Hosmer: .240/.311/.374 12HR/44BB/76SO
Frenchy: .236/.285/.365 11HR/27BB/92SO

Let's do this! Get these Red SUX!

Nightfyre

SUX should be reserved for the White Sux, imo. I mean, I hate Boston as much as just about anyone, especially after they just got a get out of jail free card on 250MM in salaries. But Chicago has a special place of hatred reserved for division rivals and the Yankees. For reference purposes, the Red Sox got out of 4x the Royals entire PAYROLL.

That is one very large strike zone

Knowing what we know about our shitty starting pitchers, in the 5th inning at the first sign of trouble the starter needs to be out, unless of course your goal is to "just let them work out of it".

SPchief

Yeah, the bullpen only pitched 9+ innings last night.

Hosmer is a fucking wreck this year.

Nightfyre
08-26-2012, 01:58 PM
I actually agree with Smith staying out there as long as he did. The kid has to face adversity and get himself out of trouble at this level. Plus our bullpen is drained.

Al Bundy

This is a great loss for the Royals, Ned needs to understand that his sack of shit starter named Will Smith should never be given the chance to work out of his own trouble. I am glad they lost, every once in a while you need to take one in the shorts. Ohh and Escobar, those 2 errors were unacceptable.
