Mr. Brightside



Not a lot of positives you can take from a 19-4 loss. Actually, this probably serves as the defintion of a low point.

On the other hand, the Royals put Tony Pena Jr. in to pitch the 9th because things had gotten out of hand. He pitched a 1-2-3 inning throwing 8 of 12 pitches for strikes and striking out Ivan Rodriguez. This hardly qualifies Pena to be the next Cy Young, but if he could ever be converted to a pitching spot we would never have to watch him bat again (except in interleague games).

The fact that pitchers don't bat is one of the reasons that the American League sucks.

On the bright side, AA, did you see WHB is offering "Joakim Soria as the Mexicutioner" t-shirts? This is a must-have.

Dan, the ever popular rebuttal "Scoreboard," comes to mind.

Kess, I have been trying to get one of those t-shirts for awhile now. They keep setting up the remotes too far from my office.
