Urge to Kill.... Rising

If you didn't read my post from last Wednesday about Farnsworth, or even if you did, it's worth reading again. Just make sure to add a loss (he's 0-3 now; that was his second loss of the week), change his ERA to 18.90 (Jesus Tits), and raise my anger level from "Full Of Hate-Filled Rage" to "Shitting Fury Out Of My Ass." In short, Farnsworth blows. That's been established. We know that.

What's really disheartening? Trey Hillman blows, too. He doesn't know how to utilize a bullpen. And that may be the Royals downfall this year. This is clearly one of, if not the best, teams that has been fielded by KC in over a decade. They can compete for the division this year, but sadly, I think it really depends on Hillman. Of the Royals five losses, at least two, and arguably three, can be blamed on bullpen decisions Mr. Goatee has made.

So why didn't Hillman put in Soria to give us a better chance of completing the sweep? The same Soria that hadn't pitched since last Monday? The same Soria that Hillman was saying needed to get some work on Sunday regardless of the situation? The same Soria that Hillman calls "Jack" Soria for some reason?

Trey's response to that question after the game: "You don't do that on the road.... the percentages are against it."

Oh Fearless Leader, the percentages are against putting one of the best pitchers in the league into a game to preserve a tie and give your team a chance at the win in extra innings? The percentages are against that?

Well you know what, dipshit? If you really were using percentages, you wouldn't let Farnsworth pitch at all. Not if the Royals still have a chance to win a game. Never against right-handed hitters. Never in the goddamn state of Texas.

The percentages are ALWAYS AGAINST KYLE FARNSWORTH.

THEY ARE RARELY, IF EVER, AGAINST "JACK" SORIA.

I CAN'T STOP YELLING.

I WISH THIS WERE A FUNNIER POST.

BUT IT'S NOT.

HILLMAN AND FARNSWORTH MIGHT DESTROY THE DREAMS OF EVERY ROYALS FAN IN THE WORLD.

SHIT!

GO ROYALS! YOU'RE THE BEST!

  1. I was tilting towards upset with the Goat for not putting Jack in during situations I deemed important too. But hasn't his until recently undisclosed soreness kept him out of those games? I can understand Hillman wanting to go easy on the guy that got no work in the preseason (compliments WBC) and complained privately to about soreness until he knows how he's gonna fare. Especially since Jack can reasonably account for 15% of our wins.

    On a larger level, our friends Hill and Moore are kinda responsible for us even imagining a season in contention. These things don't so much happen on their own in the Major Leagues. So if Hill blows a call here and there, well, at least he's getting us to a place we can be mad about blown calls.

    On the Farns front? Yeah, no dew-eyed optimism there. Career simpleton is as good an assessment as any.
