The Royals have an interesting situation that I am calling the Race for the K. It pits K monster Zack Greinke, K getter Gil Meche, and surprising K getter Brian Bannister vs. the hack-tastic line-up of regular players. As of tonight, here is how the race stands.
Jacobs 78 (247 AB’s)
Miggy 73 (213 AB’s)
Teabag 66 (296 AB’s)
I think Jacobs and Miggy will breeze past Gil. Zack is probably out of reach. Teahen is trying his best to catch up. Is this an indication of the hacktastic approach or an inability of our pitchers to strike people out?
