Next up is the Yankees where Sir Sidney will take on his former team who pounded out 11 runs against the Orioles today.
One would have to think the Royals offense which has been very lackluster in the first three games will need to show up to give Kc a chance especially with Mr.Ponson on the mound. It's not that miracles don't happen but a guess they do because Ponson did make the club after a horrid spring huh ?
I've blasted Sidney since the moment he signed because I could see this was coming, yes sir that's whats great about baseball you just seem to be able to predict the future. I mean who didn't see Thome's bomb coming ? Yes in baseball things are easier to feel what will happen then any other sport around, even in this "sport".
So far I'm 1 for 1 with predictions (Farnsworth) but I'd love to be wrong about Ponson and Ramirez but wait what's this, history repeats itself ?
Getting back to the offense, I was thinking after game one maybe Sietzer's approach with the Royals offense is working. But here's some stats over the first three games: 6 Runs, 28 LOB, 30 strikeouts, 8 walks. Just like the Royals of old. And could someone please tell Trey Hillman NOT TO HIT Guillen 4th ???
Right now we are in first place and I should be happy but you can't win games if you don't score the runs. Look at today's LOB:
1 in the 2nd,
2 in the 3rd,
1 in the 4th,
2 in the 5th,
1 in the 6th,
2 in the 7th,
1 in the 8th,
Finally we score in the ninth. Now if Coco does not hit that HR in the 9th instead of the Royals being in first (for whatever that's worth) we're all complaining about lost opportunity's.
Throughout the year I'll be keeping a count of attendance between the Royals and Pirates. Yes I bet Cory H. of that notorious Pirates blog that Kauffman would outdraw PNC but he wouldn't take it I mean I just meant a little $5 bet or something but nope. Oh well.
