Can someone calculate how many runs below average production Willie Bloomquist in RF is for the Royals? If it were over the course of a whole season?

Seriously have we come to this!

What's the MLB career record for names containing the word "nard"? Leonard DiNardo must be up there.

I just figured the number had to be so horrifically bad that I wanted to see it.

If Ellsbury and Pedey weren't so damn swing happy, we could have been talking about a 30 pitch inning. I'll take 20, though.

I hope Wake has "it" tonight.

Jacoby thinks he's a home run hitter again. No reason to let a strike go by, or even a pitch close to a strike.

DiNardo's staple pitch is the 84 mph cutter to righties. He doesn't really have a fastball, although that cutter is his fastest pitch. It's something like a gyrocutter, in that it basically just sits there with close to zero net break, but it has always been tough on right-handed hitters.

Zero net break?

So he has an 84 MPH fastball that gets righties out? amazing.

So I'm thinking that the third inning is the tell inning. Dunno why, but I get the sense that if they're meant to do some serious damage tonight, it begins to happen in the 3rd. And if not, well, the box score in the morning will read: LOB: 17.

Nice play by Lowell there...as said before, and maybe its anecdotal, but he has looked a lot more nimble in the recent month or so than earlier. He's still not gonna wow anyone with it, but it doesn't seem to be the total albatross it was.
