Thoughts on Royals decimation of the ChiSox

After sitting in the bright sun, beating on the back of my head and neck this afternoon, I have the following observations/comments.

 

Gil Meche > Bartolo Colon:  Meche looked great for 3 innings.  He was pitching with good pace, keeping the Sox hitters off balance, and getting lots of groundouts.  The fourth was a different deal.  He looked like he still had good stuff, but wasn't locating pitches well.  It really looked like he lost his focus.  Maybe the big lead is responsible.  Bartolo Colon was just awful.

Teahen was awesome.  His homer was a no-doubter and he had other hits.  He was making good contact.  Even more, though, Buddyball had forgotten how strong his arm was.  He had a couple of lasers from right field today.  He had a very good day.

It was good to see the lefty-heavy lineup continued to hit left pitching.

Mitch Maier's homer was a rocket shot.  It cleared the fence and the berm in right field.  He really couldn't have hit the ball any better or harder.

Billy Butler has two forgetable at bats.  First a weak grounder that he really didn't run out and then he looked bad in striking out in his second at bat.  Maybe it was the heat and the fact that the game was pretty much out of reach.

Kyle Farnsworth throws the ball fast, but pitches really s-l-o-w-l-y.  The whole pace of the game came down when he came in.

I actually saw TPJ take a ball!

I have never seen a Royals team take so many walks.  OBP monsters!

Mrs. Buddyball and I will be driving to Sedona tomorrow, but will watch the battle for Grass Creek on Wednesday.
