Perez/Royals Back In The Game…Now What?

Salvador Perez was flat-out sloppy in game 1 of the World Series. The catcher for the Kansas City Royals wasn’t framing pitches and he wasn’t blocking them either. Sloppines

s cost the team at least three called strikes and two bases on wild pitches. Those pitches should have been blocked, but instead allowed runners to advance, and changed the momentum of the game.

Fast forward 24 hours and then again 72 and Perez looks like a different player. Unlike game one, Perez wasn’t rushing to get the ball out of his glove and back to the pitcher. Instead he was holding the glove for the home plate ump, giving him at least a chance to call ...

Words of inspiration for Jeremy Guthrie

GuthrieTo begin, I’d like to point out that I was dropping Quiz poetry a week before ESPN decided to. That said, I’m going to do it again in hopes of inspiring Kansas City’s Game 3 starter, Jeremy Guthrie.

adrenaline and blood flow, mix

a potion

for a healthy pitcher

eyes sharp, focused

as a hawk on rabbit

Minnesota’s new manager is now available

MaddonTerry Ryan is one of the best general managers in the game, but he needs to forget about Paul Molitor and Doug Mientkiewicz, because Joe Maddon just opted out of Tampa Bay and needs to be the next skipper for the Twins.

Minnesota is a small market team that has to rely on developing players and making shrewd moves in free-agency to compete, an environment and scenario Maddon is incredibly familiar and effective with.

Maddon gets the most out of his players and uses his roster creatively to give his club its best chance at success day after day. Exactly what the Twins need.

The Rays had not had a single winning season when Maddon took over at the Trop. ...

I’ll take heart all day long

Hosmer diveFor all those mainstream media morons who were writing off the Royals after the Game 1 blowout, has anything changed now that Kansas City has in turn routed the Giants?

There will be plenty of talk that Jake Peavy wasn’t on his game and yada, yada, yada. San Francisco was supposed to hammer Yordano Ventura¬†on Wednesday¬†because the G-Men have numerous players amongst baseball’s leaders in batting against fastballs in excess of 95 miles per hour.

So what exactly happened in Game 2? Explain it to me.

You know what, it doesn’t matter. And let me tell you why....

Big Lame James And The Ryder Cup Rotation That Yost The Series

royalsI had hoped it was a bad dream brought on by exhaustion, a fever and a winner of a sinus infection leading up to game one of the World Series. Certainly it couldn’t be true that the Kansas City Royals were going to ignore the realities of their best-known starter’s recent post season flame outs and start him for game one, could it?

Alas, it was true. And as I recover from the creeping crud, my still-clogged and befuddled mind struggles to answer the question, why would Royals’ manager Ned Yost start two guys -James Shields with 10 earned runs given up in 16 innings this post season and¬†Yordano Ventura with bookend ERA’s of 54.00 and 6.35 sandwiched around a ...

It was just one game

AokiAfter the Giants took it to the Royals in Game 1 last night, most of the mainstream media would have you believe that this Series is over and San Francisco will coast to its third title in five years.

The game isn’t played in the media, however, and how many times do those “mediots” as our Scott Fendley likes to call them, have to be wrong before we cease being sheep led to the slaughter?

The only way the trophy gets handed over is for either the G-Men or Royals to win four games. And the Giants need three more. Impressive as it was, San Fran have won a single game.

Today is a new day. Game 2 is another ...

Sources: San Francisco Bans More Than Just Lorde

1413910799_bannedRadio stations in San Francisco, following the direction from listeners, have banned Lorde’s “Royals” until the World Series ends. Like it matters. Kansas City Royals are going 12-0.

My sources in San Francisco have obtained a document, to be released prior to Game 1, of other Kansas City-related bans, which disillusioned Giants fans think will guide them to another championship. Here is a copy of said document. Click on the image to enlarge it.

Fall Classic: Chalk v. Lando

worldSeries14LogoWhen I reached out to Giants writer David Chalk about a point / counterpoint piece leading into Game 1 of the Fall Classic,¬†his response was¬†drenched in the sarcasm and disregard we’ve grown to know and love around the halls of B&C.

Honestly, I think¬†Chalk’s just upset that he knows the G-POPE (Barry Bonds)¬†wasn’t half the outfielder Lorenzo Cain is and he’s under the misguided notion that the Royals are but a bump in the road before the Giants take down their third title in five years.

And why not? Everyone else has overlooked Kansas City and look where that’s gotten them.

That said, I can’t help but remember the last time we squared off like this, I ended up writing ...

My Pick: Awesomeness

I’m honestly giddy about the World Series and why not? Two teams that have survived every nail-biting moment through the wild card game and then being the underdog in both the divisional series and the championship series. They beat some very good teams in every single way.

Here’s a brief handicap of the participants.

Kansas City Royals: score every way and any way, totally non-reliant on the home run, but have guys who hit mistakes. Team speed is better than the Giants and they are not afraid to run on anybody at any time. Benefit from home field advantage with the comfort of the designated hitter in four games out of seven, if the series lasts that long. Patient at ...

Orioles Lay An Egg in the ALCS.

broken-eggWhat can you say when you lose fair and square? When you’re so soundly beaten in every phase of something, you hardly know what hit you? What can you say?

I’d kind of like to be a bad sport about the Orioles’ puzzlingly sorry¬†performance against Kansas City in the ALCS. I’d like to make ugly jokes about the midwest and say something mean about corn.

I want to say Kansas City got every break. Every bloop found the grass, every ground ball found a hole. And every Oriole line drive was corralled by an outfield that surprised everyone.

I can’t, though. The Orioles didn’t even compete hard enough to warrant bad sportsmanship. They lost four straight and, after the 10-inning ...
