So it wasn't a three-game sweep, but the Royals took their first double-header from the Red Sox in Fenway since 1971. That's 42 years. A man at that age is the target audience for those Low-T commercials. They had last swept the Red Sox in a double-header in 1986. That's 27 years ago. A man at that age was born just after the Royals only World Series win.
So yeah, this was rare.
Almost as rare as a George Kottaras start.
MY BIG STRONG GREEK BACK-UP CATCHER.
All he does is hit home runs, folks. Or strike out. But that's okay because he's just a backup. He's proven better in one game this season than his Greek teammate Mike Moustakas has proven in three weeks.
Anyway, because yesterday's feat at Fenway was so rare, we're going to ignore Saturday's late-innings loss and focus on the double-header sweep.
Which means an obligatory sweep post!
Check it out:
What's that, you say?
"JR, that's just the White Sox sweep graphic with a red tint overlay on the sock!"
How dare you.
It's not my fault these teams have such stupid mascots.
Just be happy the sock doesn't look like a penis.
I don't want this blog getting flagged as "Mature."
Because if there's one thing this blog isn't, it's "Mature."
Anywho... THE ROYALS ARE THE BEST TEAM IN THE AMERICAN LEAGUE CENTRAL!
They've stopped the Braves' ten-game winning streak! They've stopped the Red Sox seven-game winning streak! They've swept the Twinkies, who are now inexplicably in second-place in the Royals' division!
And they're heading to Comerica Park in Detroit for a three-game set with the World-Series-losing Tigers, the team crowned 2013 division champs by pretty much everyone before the season started.
But these aren't the same old Royals.
Go Royals! 155-7! You're the Best!
