He actually looks a lot better than I thought he would tonight. Hitting 95 MPH with his fastball and seems to be locating it really well. Despite the 2 runs, he really hasn't be hit hard. A pleasant surprise for sure. That said, KC has scored the fewest runs in the league this year and no one on their team is projects to eclipse 20 HRs if you extrapolate their current production over 162 games. 8-o

Dude, your name fits you perfect. You should figure out how to get off the sauce.


Lol at this response. I've actually thought this same comment before reading a prior one of his posts. :-B

Hey now, we can make fat and John Daly jokes all we like, but the drinkin jokes must end. Some of my best posts have been under the influence. and not just under the influence, but UNDER THE INFLUENCE. drinking is a life style, not a liability. :-D :-D

He actually did well tonight. Only gave up two. But hey, it is against the Royals. Although we did designate Taveras..so maybe he is stickin around.

Speaking of Eric Gregg, I heard a story about him, maybe someone else has heard it. He was third base umpire for a game and during pregame warmups someone (a player I think) put a cheeseburger on third base while Gregg was looking elsewhere. As the story goes, when Gregg got near the base and saw the burger he good-naturedly took a bite out of it, then gave it to a bat boy or an usher to dispose of. I've always wondered if it really happened. :-b


What else could he do? If true, that's pretty funny.

I know its been said before, but really saying he's fat is just stating a fact. Its like saying that Rich Hill is tall. Or that Julio Franco is old. Or that Pedro Martinez is bionically reconstructed. The list goes on and on, it is beyond the scope of this post to exhaust it.

He pitched well most of his pitches were around 92, and he may have tired a little toward the end of his outing, but he looked pretty good and if he continues to regain velocity he should be decent.
