And this is why I'm glad the Royals are in the American League. A pitcher...pinch hitting...for another pitcher...and being asked to give up an out...in the 5th freaking inning. I mean what?? The story here is all about the jersey...but shouldn't we be talking about how a team willingly gave up an out for no real reason? and worse, gave it up without even putting up a farce of going for a hit??
