Game 117 Open Thread- Royals (38-78) at Mariners (49-67)

Do I have to call him "King Felix"? Sorry, I just don't have it in me. Not when I'm watched Zach/k Greinke implode, and not when I'm dedicated to the good fortunes of America's Least Favorite Franchise. Let the English or whomever have their King, personally I find the nickname both presumptious and un-American.

Meanwhile, the Royals look to end a horrendous 15-game losing streak, turning to Runelvys Hernandez (8-10, 4.93 ERA) (why isn't he a good candidate for being called "King"?) against the aforementioned other Hernandez (1-1, 0.69 ERA).

Here's some wisdom from Buddisimo:

``This is getting really old,'' Royals manager Buddy Bell said. ``We literally did some bad things -- getting picked off, doubled off.''

Thanks Buddy, you are truly wise.
