Game 58- Royals 7, Mets 5 (22-36)
Baseball's two most toothless pitching staffs squared off at the K last night. The Royals inched a little closer to 29th in baseball in Ks, out-striking the Mets 6-5 before a thrilled Missouri crowd. (Or something like that.)
The double-header sweep fiasco against the Expos still casts a pall over the Royals fandom I think, judging from what I've heard and read online in the last 24 hours. Still, its always good to see a win. Largely because May kept the ball in the yard, he was able to "rebound" with a win. Affeldt gave up three straight singles with 2-out in the ninth, but ultimately retired Karim Garcia to get the save.

In the meantime, we sit back and await the inevitable Beltran trade. I haven't conceded yet that the deal will be horrible, but the 2004 Royals will most certainly get worse. Given Beltran's talent and youth, its forseeeable that really no improvement- long or short term- ever occurs.
