Can we play the Royals every day?

The Mariners are above .500 after a three-game sweep of Kansas City, where an awful Royal team made Ryan Franklin, Aaron Sele and Jamie Moyer look like Maddux, Smoltz and Glavine.

Now Seattle takes on some grown-ups, the Chicago White Sox. The Sox are off to a stronger start than meets the eye. Chicago currently is last in the AL in OBP (a sickening .279). Their BA of .226 and OPS of .664 are pretty ugly too. But they are 6-3 at this point, due to some nice pitching from Mark Buehrle and Freddy Garcia. The pitching matchups sure favor the Chisox. After Joel Piniero goes tonight after starting the year on the DL, Ryan Franklin will take on Buehrle and Garcia will face Gil Meche. Meche is off to a horrid start, and has been complaining of elbow problems.

Right now, the Sox are currently bitch-slapping the M's 5-0.

Pineiro just didn't have any control last night. Sox took more walks last night than they have all season and were actually able to get baserunners home. Impressed Garland was able to cruise as well as he did, but after 6 innings he suffered his usual one bad inning breakdown. Somehow, someway our bullpen managed to get the job done.

I'll be at the games today and tomorrow, will post anything here that seems mildly insightful.

Well, we sure aren't impressing you, are we? Oh, and ya'll need comments on your blog. I've been meaning to ask you if you went to the Kaiser Chiefs concert or not.

And if so, how were they?
