How Could Hell Be Any Worse? Kansas City's a Fuckin' Curse!

Kansas City Royals: 17-47, 24 games back.

Boston Red Sox: 36-27, 1 game back.

Kansas City Royals payroll: $47,294,00

Boston Red Sox payroll: $120,100,524

I'll take full responsibility for getting a little irrational a few hours back, but seriously, I guess things could be a lot worse. Not that petty little things like "perspective" matter to most of us. All things considered, we should thank God that we're Sox fans. I can't imagine going through a summer of baseball when you're out of the race by May 1. Thus, I salute you, Brent Giese, Kansas City Royals fan. To you, we must look like a bunch of jack-asses getting all worked up because one tired-ass pitcher blew apart a joga bonita. Your amazingly ridiculous amount of over-analysis of a really bad team allows me to draw one or two (or both) conclusions: 1. You REALLY love your Royals. 2. You have no job. Either way, your slick, info-saturated blog shows a deep love of the game, even if your team's biggest signing was Doug Mientkiewicz. Thanks for reminding me that, A. Doug Mientkiewicz sucks, and B. That baseball is still the greatest game in the world, even when you have a chance to set the all-time record for losses in a season. Thanks, Brent, on behalf of all over-adrenalized, micro-managing, panic-prone, perspective-losing idiots everywhere. That said, someone needs to sack up and take responsibility for this bullpen. Oh, and for Matt Clement, too. He couldn't find a plate with a Crate and Barrel catalog.

That didn't make sense unless you lose the "I'll take a oh well."

Just so you know, Dayton Moore is the General Manager of the Kansas City Royals. Brent Giese writes the incredible blog which you linked to.
