Royals Nightly

Game 122- Angels 9, Royals 4 (44-78)
Ahh... the dashed dreams of another chance at a winning streak gone awry. Continuing the theme of the last three months (i.e. can you tell the difference between what we're doing with our roster and what a computer generated randomizer would do??) the Royals recalled Angel Berroa and sent down Royals Nightly darling Andres Blanco. I guess that brief exile to Wichita was punitive rather than... hmm... what the word I'm looking for here... maybe "real".

Berroa rewarded the Royals with a free and easy 0-4, complete with a thrilling "look Ma, no errors" performance between 2nd and 3rd base. Hey, if people can continually assert that Omar Vizquel is a Hall of Famer, then maybe Angel's radical pursuit of inadequacy is acceptable.

Ohh yea... that Pickering Guy that we had buried behind Grimace all season homer again. Tell the boys at M.I.T. to put a hold on the groundbreaking study dealing with the fastest way to destroy an offense, as we've just lost a key data point for the "singles-hitter at DH/1B" field.

And then, theres the pitching as D.A.R.Y.L and Kinney teamed up for a disheartening 9 runs in 6 innings effort. Ho hum, still last in the majors in strikeouts, still fielding a below-average defense, still not scoring runs. I mean honestly, whats not to like?
