First I would like to apologize for not writing much the past week. I've been extremely busy and haven't had the time to post.
Now I would have never dreamed the Royals would have swept one baseball's best teams on the road to start the season. It is really incredibile! Our pitching has been outstanding thus far, although the next 2 pitchers in the rotation are not in the same class as Meche, Bannister, and Greinke. Let's hope we can keep it going against the Twins. Also, looking at the schedule, it apears this might be are most difficult month as far as quality teams we're playing. If we can manage to finish April with a .500 record I think things are looking very good for the rest of the season.
Now let me give out my awards for the past 2 games:
Royals Stud of the Game: Brian Bannister.
7 innings of shutout, 2 hit baseball. Also had 0 walks.
Royals Bum of the Game: Alex Gordon.
0-4 at the plate, 4 runners left on base, 3 strikeouts.
Royals Stud of the Game: Zach Greinke
7 innings only giving up 1 run, 3K, 6 hits given up.
Royals Bum of the Game: Tony Pena Jr
Has a great glove, but 0-4 today with 2 runners left on base.
