Sea-addled

Boy, the Mariners sure do suck, don't they?

It's too bad the Royals can't play them every series. Then again, it hasn't mattered who they've taken on the last couple weeks (unless it's a nationally televised game; of course they had to suck when people were actually watching).

Even with the minor hiccup of the ESPN game, the Royals have been one of the best teams in baseball lately. Timely hitting, good pitching (especially the bullpen, it's amazing how much better our relief corps does when Hillman isn't the one making the calls down there), and taking advantage of the other teams' mistakes, rather than the other way around.

I've been enjoying the games a lot more, feeling more optimistic, and as a result, the posting has really suffered. It's not that there aren't things I haven't thought about mocking.

For instance, I had a grand post set up where I argued that Frank White is basically the live-action version of Dr. Julius Hibbert.

It's not that I don't like him as an announcer (nobody does a better job of telling viewers whether the current moon phase is a waxing or waning gibbous), but his weird habit of filling dead air with giggling gets a little old. Though sometimes it becomes awesomely inappropriate, too. I won't attempt to re-create that post now because I'm extremely lazy.


Anywho, just thought I'd check in with the obligatory sweep post.

Which reminds me...


That's right, the Royals have swept Tony Pena, Jr.

Go Royals! You're the Best!

    Tonight we have Split, who we all love,but who has continued to sadly diminish due to his illness.
    This being said I love Frank (Dr. Hibert) as an analyst. Last seasons back and forth with Ryan concerning the old school pants, with Frank getting the last word by saying "show'em what you got" was awesome.
