After a few weeks of praising Jorge de la Rosa, I'm afraid to jinx him, so... we'll just wait and see what we get tonight, eh?

Fun Fact of the Day: According to BP's Defensive Efficiency Report, the Royals rank 27th in baseball in terms of turning balls-in-play into outs. 68.5% of non-homers end up becoming outs. By way of comparision, the worst team in baseball is Florida (67.9%), while the New York Mets are tops at 74.3%.
