Yeah the Marlins are looking to be the runaway worst team. The Devil Rays also still suck.

Rosenthal, in Sporting News: "The Royals could be the first team since the expansion Blue Jays in 1977-79 to produce three straight 100-loss seasons. Only 10 teams since 1900 have lost 100 games in three or more consecutive years. The 1938-42 Phillies hold the record for ineptitude--five straight 100-loss seasons. . . ."

They have something to shoot for, if they try hard enough they just might get there.

Uh.....yeah okay. Just because some person writes something down doesn't make it true. A lot of people wrote down that the ChiSox weren't going to be very good last year, right? We played a lot better baseball yesterday than we did for the most part last year, and if we keep that up, we won't lose 100.

04/05/06--Game RecapTigers 14, Royals 3Winning Pitcher: BondermanLosing Pitcher: MaysBox Score: http://sports.espn.g...ameId=260405107Poor ballgame. Joe Mays was actually pretty good when he kept the ball down, but every time he made a mistake up, he got crushed..and he left it up way too often, so he wasn't good at all today. Luke Hudson from the pen was good. Stemle from the 'pen, who has NO business being on this team and won't be here for long, was atrocious, Gobble was okay, Wood was atrocious, and Sisco had a 3 strikeout dominant inning. So..not all our pitching was bad...but those who did pitch poorly today really stunk it up bigtime. Made two errors on defense and Berroa made a baserunning mistake. Offense was a little bit better, home runs from Emil Brown and our young stud Shane Costa were good to see..but other than that we couldn't get anything going against Bonderman. In particular, Sweeney and Grudzielanek have been atrocious both games. That should change..hopefully Friday. Mays needed a good showing to show that he even belongs on the team...because when Redmen is healthy..which will likely be around April 20th or so...one guy is leaving and Mays looks to be the odd one out right now...he'll probably get one more start and if he doesn't impress..hopefully we never hear from him again.Off-day tomorrow and ChiSox come to town for three starting Friday.

Also, made two great plays at third base, showing good range to both his left and his right.-Billy Butler: Still only 19 years old (for a few more days), Butler began his season as the left fielder in Double-A and went 4 for 8 with a double and two runs scored. -Mark Redmen: Not really a "prospect," but he made a rehab start at Wichita and went five innings, giving up one unearned run on three hits, walking one and striking out two. Should make one more rehab start and then be ready to return to the KC rotation.

I was able to listen to a lot of it on the radio. But usually I just get that kind of stuff from various reports/blogs/box scores and such. This year's Double-A team is going to be VERY interesting to watch from an offensive standpoint...as there is a TON of potential...while more of our good arms are in Triple-A.

Lol.....Jeremy Affeldt's been complaining and whining about how he should be a starter for three years now.....and what does he do now that he finally gets hit wish? Gives up 4 runs before he even gets one out. Pathetic. He's got a lot of talent...but his mind sucks bigtime...just doesn't seem to know how to get it done. F*cking retard.

???Our GM and manager have said that he is already talking to them about wanting to comeback..but he's on the 60-DL....so he won't be around until midseason.04/07/06 -- Game RecapChicago-7, Kansas City-11Winning Pitcher: WoodLosing Pitcher: GarlandBox Score: http://sports.espn.g...ameId=260407107Game Recap: Great game for Kansas City. Good to get the first win and show some good character. An atrocious start for Affeldt, giving up five runs in the first, but he actually came back after that and threw three much better innings and kept us in the game. Offense finally exploded for five runs in the fourth inning and scored in every single inning thereafter, which was a pretty good showing against Garland...including two huge hits from John Buck...who has struggled offensively for pretty much his entire Royals career. Sweeney only had one hit, but hit the ball very hard three times..including a nice double. Pitching was actually good overall...despite the ugly numbers. Atrocious first inning..but after that Affeldt actually threw well...only giving up three hits and one run in the next three innings. Wood threw well for two innings to get the win..Elmer Dessens looked extremely impressive for the second straight outing...and Burgos worked a decent scoreless inning. Defensively...Teahen started an extremely good double play, with a great turn by Grudz, and Minky made three very nice plays at first base to take away a hit and to save a couple throws from Berroa and Teahen from being errors. Overall....the first inning was ugly, but from that point on we played a pretty good ballgame all around and if we can play like that more often we will be just fine. Hopefully this effort carries over to the weekend. It'd be pretty sweet to win our first series against the ChiSox.
