He was probably out, but I'll take it.

Lucroy has such a punchable face, BTW.

Well, if they win tonight, it'll be the earliest they've gotten 50 wins in the history of the franchise, so...

I was on the brink a few days ago. Now...

The Royals DFA'd Jeff Francouer.

The Pirates were linked to him last season before they acquired Travis Snider.

Win in blow outs, win in squeakers. It's all good; you need to win both ways.

But I'd prefer to have a couple more runs here.

What is that? The third or fourth time this week that a base runner has gotten to first on a wild pitch K?

As good as Grilli has been over the course of the season, I am definitely more nervous with him and a one run lead tonight than I have been in recent memory.

RAISE IT!!!

I'm all in. I love this team. But even more, I love that a new generation is experiencing what I felt when I was (much) younger.
