Still looking for their first win, our beloved Royals take on the defending champs tonight at the K. Making his first start is the always maddening Jeremy Affeldt (0-2, 5.26 ERA in 05). The White Sox counter with Jon Garland, fresh off his "breakout" season, which saw his ERA, WHIP and BABIP all drop a tick. Hmm... I wonder what that means? Same old Garland, new Sox defense.
Or it was because Ozzie belived in him, if you prefer the Hawk Harrelson approach.
The Royals have drawn one walk in 2006. Tonight's game should be tremendous, as I fully expect a glorious first victory for the Royals.
