Inspired by the teachings of Buddy Bell, the Royals look to win a game this afternoon in lovely Kansas City. Did you know that the Royals have only 43 wins this season? Did you know that that isn't a very good total?
The Royals turn to Jimmy Gobble, who was once considered a good pitching prospect, even someone who might be worth building around. Back in the early days of 2004, yours truly even loudly praised Gobble as he did his best Greg Maddox-lite impression, leading the Royals to stunning 5-3 type victories over great teams like the 2004 Indians and Tigers.
Back in the golden, halcyon days of our youth.
