Game 45 Open Thread- Royals (16-28) at Rockies (18-25)

It seems like this happens three times a week, with the Royals yet again facing a critical rubber game this afternoon in Denver. With a victory, the series -- and the ownership of the eastern Colorado/ western Kansas region is theirs, with a loss, only bitter ignominy.

The Royals send the once and future Bannister (0-2, 4.15 ERA) to the hill with so much on the line, while the Rockies counter with Jason Hirsch (2-4, 3.99 ERA). Wasn't he the guy from Taxi and Dear John?
