Hopefully agent Greinke understands what he must do tonight

Dude is 1-15? Holy shit.

So Javier starts 1-2 on a guy who is 0 for his last 20 and gives up a single. Just the kind of reassuring start we were looking for.

Greinke is 1-15. Javier is… Javier.

Something’s gotta give.

Javier is maddening.

He’s been broken since mid June. I am surprised he has kept his rotation spot the entire time with how wild he consistently is.

Who would they replace him with? They’ve pretty much got no choice but to keep trotting him out there.

I got home to see the 3rd out.

Went back to gameday to see how it unfolded.

Leadoff single.

Ok, rather see that than a walk.

Next batter: walk

Ok, let’s check the pitch locations.

Good Good ball 4 was a slider that nearly hit the (right handed) batter in the face.

Buckle up.

After Abreu got a hit just now I had this involuntary thought: Good, now we’re coming into the heart of the order.

Holy shit.

What a terrible call.

Wow! Greinke just got fucked!

This is Angel-esque

Jose bails them out.

Wow, there’s a gift. What a clank. Hopefully Yordan can make them pay.

Speak of the devil.

Shit, Angel’s here. But if I understand the rotation properly, we won’t get him behind the plate.

GIDP Bregman. Yay!

The Royals giving Kenny Powers a chance to play 1B is pretty cool.

I think I’d rather see Popup Bregman.
