Well, what do you know? Yost benches Yuni and Francoeur for three straight against the Indians, and the Royals win all three games. Coincidence? Perhaps, but the previous thirty-some-odd days in which the Royals didn't win even two games in a row would indicate otherwise.
Last night's game was rather ugly, with KC building a big lead in the first only to piss it away, but rallying for a walk-off in the bottom of the 11th. It wasn't pretty, but it got the job done. Cleveland is unofficially done for the year after a strong start, and somehow, even after a sweep, the Royals are still last in the AL Central. Oh well. They got Derek Lowe shitcanned, so that's got to count for something.
We're obligated, of course, to do our traditional sweep post. We've done this with the Indians once before, but this time we've chosen American Indian cartoon character Chief Wahoo to be the swept one (sweepee?), instead of Indian American cartoon character Apu Nahasapeemapetilon.
Take that, you racist caricature!
Go Royals! You're the Best when you bench Yuni & Frenchy!
