@historiophiliac being super lazy today, so I’ll just do her job for her! Why? Because I’m awesome and a great boss and well, just the coolest. Not my words, hers. Promise. She also wanted everyone to know she’s unable to post because she’s too busy buying up all the Royals gear she can get her hands on. I believe the exact quote was “Ned Yost is sooooooooooo dreamy.”
While yesterday’s game is unlikely to be repeated, tonight’s game features a fantastic pitching matchup, with Met’s stud Jacob deGrom (That lowercase d throws me off every time.) up against Johnny Cueto for the Royals.
Last night’s game went 14 innings, so bullpen match-ups will be key tonight. Thankfully the game is in Kansas City, so the DH will give the teams a little bit of breathing room. Both pitchers will need to be on their A game tonight as they will need to give their teams some serious innings. Of course with so many scheduled days off, this is less of a concern as it could be.
So, who do you got? The long haired kid, or the hired gun?
Side note, I’d like to take this opportunity to discuss a matter of extreme importance. The overall terribleness of Aquaman. I mean, really he’s just the worst. Can you imagine him around the Justice League table with all the other heroes? “I can fly, I’m impervious to damage, and can shoot laser beams out of my eyes.” “I can fly, travel in space, and create solid objects out of light with my imagination.” “I can phase through objects, have super strength, and can transform into powerful beasts.” “I can talk to fish.” When a super hero can be defeated by simply walking a few feet inland, you know you have problems. Dude is just the worst.
