Jeremy Guthrie threw another solid game last night to complete KC's sweep of the Tigers. He's quickly becoming one of our favorite Royals. Not just because he's been a damn good pitcher since he came over from Colorado, but also because he's genuinely an entertaining guy... Fans who love players like Chen and Francoeur should really check out Guthrie. He's much more worthy of your adoration.
There's plenty of proof at Jeremy Guthrie's twitter if you don't believe me.
Here's a choice tweet from the day he was traded to the Royals:
Pretty good, right?
How about this:
He's genuinely funny. Not like Chen with his Laffy Taffy wrapper routine.
And we like that.
Now, without further adieu, let's get to what you've all been waiting for:
THE ROYALES WITH CHEESE OBLIGATORY SWEEP IMAGE™
Who knew when I made this picture back on April 3, 2008, that I'd get so much use out of it? This is at least the third time I've posted this sweep image, but it never gets old:
Every sweep image that has followed pales in comparison...
So that's that.
Anyway, it's the start of a long weekend, so I'll take the easy way out and just close out this post with some of the best behind-the-scenes candid Royals photos we've seen, courtesy of (who else?) Jeremy Guthrie's twitter!
First up, we've got Billy Butler loading up on some biscuits & gravy and breakfast casserole:
How about Luis Mendoza hanging out with one of the members of the Blue Man Group:
And, lastly, we have Rex Hudler putting on a gun show in the hotel pool:
Enjoy your Labor Day Weekend!
Go Jeremy Guthrie! You're the Best!
