The Royals look to reverse their recent misfortunes in a Memorial Day matchup against the Baltimore Orioles.
Appropriately enough, the Royals will square off on Monday night against Steve Trachsel (3-3, 3.77 ERA) who proudly served his country in the Korean War. Luckily, Buddisimo Bell fully understands why the Royals fell back to Earth, and has a game plan ready to stop the bleeding:
Step one in Bell's Plan For Victory (notice the date) involves Lamar Colorado's secret weapon, the Self-Appointed Team Effort Inspector, Scott Elarton (1-0, 6.00 ERA). In fourteen career starts at the K, Elarton is 1-5 with a 6.13 ERA.
Hmm... Elarton and Trachsel? This might be a four hour game.
