Anderson v. Ponson: Duck for Cover!!!
Should be a great pitcher's duel tonight in Kansas City, as Brian Anderson and Sir Sidney square off. Amazingly, both pitchers began the year as purported staff aces. I've already done my best to discuss the amazing decay of Brian Anderson, and now that Pena's moved him back into the starting rotation-- in the place of a vastly more effective Dennys Reyes-- it seems we are right back to square one with BA: it can't get worse, so it might get better, so lets see what you got man.
Anderson's still one of the very worst pitchers in the American League this season, as his -25.5 VORP is the worst in all of MLB by a wide margin, and right in line with his 7.23 ERA, 1.96 WHIP and .362 BAA.
All of that being said, the Royals are sorta playing good ball right now, and it was the previous Baltimore series that marked the beginning of the current "refuse to be the worst team in @*#$ing history" stage in the team's development. Sixty-two wins boys, thats all we ask!!
