Game 40- A's 5, Royals 4 (13-27)
What do you say really? I feel really bad for Affeldt, who seems to be one of those guys who just can't get a break.

Personally, I don't quite see the value in making him a closer/reliever- since even if he becomes Eric Gagne 2.0, the Royals could really use 200 or so OK innings than 70 dominant ones. Nevertheless, there are certain health and baseball reasons for trying it with JA, and yesterday was just an eeirely-bad start for the project.

Nate Field's ERA is 1.65 by the way.

And apparently Brandon Berger wasn't dead.

3 errors? Ouch.

13 wins, 14 games under .500... and this from a team considered a viable division winner pick. Terrible.
