    Why in the Fuck aren’t we playing for a DP? Two fucking Taylor made DP balls and nothing. I fucking hate Matheny so much already.

    Duffy throwing a fucking gem and gets pulled on what, 65 pitches? Because of a dumb ass manager error. Now the games fucking over.

    Having a handful of career minor leaguers batting 6-9 does not seem to be a good strategy so far.

    I just really want to run Matheny over with my car. Not on purpose, but like kind of accidentally. Like, he’s in the cross walk and I sneeze and accidentally floor the gas pedal.

    They're terrible. A short season is a mercy.

    I'm also hoping for condensed KU fball schedule for the same reason.

    The manager doesn't matter, you guys.

    They suck. Zuber looked fine. Everyone else was bad. This rotation, woof.

    I would also trade mondesi for a case of beer but what do I know.

    Royals really need to draft an elite bat in next years draft.

    Their definition of an elite bat is a gap hitter who swings at everything. A hosmer type.

    I want nothing to do with that

    Wouldn't mind them taking the Miami catcher Adrian Del Castillo as eventual replacement for Salvy.

    I thought Singer looked pretty good yesterday. Franco cost him a run because he isn't coordinated enough to catch a perfect throw from Whit. Anyway, it's clear that Singer relies on his slider a lot so it'll be interesting to see if he develops a third pitch. I saw only a handful of changeups and they were pretty flat without much depth so hopefully he can continue to work on that. But he has an out pitch already in that slider. Promising upside.

    I also really liked what I saw from Zuber. I think he's going to be relied upon a lot this year and the stuff looks pretty decent as well. Matheny is a bad manager and we are stuck with him. Maybe he can win me over like Ned did but that's going to take a loooot of time.
