Game 142 Open Thread- Yankees (80-62) at Royals (62-79)

One last game against the Yankees this season, with the Royals still looking for that elusive second victory.

The Yankees send groundball master Chien-Ming Wang (17-6, 3.68 ERA) to the mound, while the Royals counter with Zack Greinke (6-5, 3.87 ERA). One interesting note: in 173.2 innings, Wang has 87 strikeouts, in 100.0 innings, Greinke has 86.

I can't wait to see Huber not play again. At least he's getting a prorated big league minimum salary, that brings me some solace. Heck, at this point, I'd even be happy to see Costa get a start.

Finally, not only has the recent losing streak brought the White Sox closer to the Royals for fourth place, its also likely cost the Royals a shot at snagging third. Yes, third, the Twins have lost six straight and are now 69-73.
