Just a few days ago, the Royals were the hottest team in baseball and the Mariners had just lost two consecutive series, almost being swept in each. Now the Royals have lost three straight, and look to avoid the sweep against the Mariners and Roenis Elias today.
Endy Chavez is leading off again, which probably means that we are all going to complain for an hour before he starts the game off with a double. Cano is in the DH spot while Willie Ballgame is pencilled in at second.
Tomorrow the Red Sox come to town as the Mariners kick off their first homestand of the summer. Here's to keeping it above .500.
