Big Day for Affeldt
Being only slightly over-dramatic, I think its safe to say tomorrow's afternoon game against Cleveland is pretty big. Big for Jeremy Affeldt that is. Affeldt's blisters may have been the single biggest factor in the Royal's tailing off last season. (Well, beyond the fact that Mike Sweeney missed over a month, "Run-elvis" Hernandez's right arm fell off, and that the Twins and White Sox were both decidedly more talented...)

So, everyone needs to see if his fingers will respond well to the semi-experimental off-season surgery. As I wrote in the preview, JA can be an All-Star this year if he stays on the mound. That goal starts tomorrow at 2:10.
