If you're going to give Span a day off, wouldn't it make more sense to give him yesterday off, and let Mastro play against a soft tossing lefty rather than a hard throwing righty?

How is Plouffe in center field, at catching, or on the mound? That's all he has left to complete his "fit".

"Bodes well"? Revere is hands down early-game favorite for Player of the Game...

I am stranded at the office by Obama's motorcade. What happened to Royals' starter?

Well Blackburn isn't going to be improving his ERA today.

Dozier seems to be making a lot of errors lately. And the timing of this error is bad, because Blackburn really needs to get out of this inning.

When would the timing of an error be good?

When we are up by 10 runs in the 9th inning and our pitcher needs some extra work?

If this goes the way that it looks, I am hoping that Butera will get to pitch a few innings tonight.
