Game 112, Royals at Mariners
SS Jo. Wilson
The repeat of Friday’s lineup last night yielded one of the most boring games in recent memory. This one has Saunders still out and Bard taking over for Moore, because Moore’s stiff back is apparently worse than Bard’s stiff neck.
The news for today is that Shawn Kelley is out for the rest of the season. Divish says that there was no stress fracture, but exploratory surgery will be needed at the very least, while Larry Stone quotes Wak in saying he could be ready in spring training or he could be out a year. So, Schrödinger’s Elbow basically, and we’re just waiting on the wave function to collapse. Nothing new here, no sir.
More positive news is that Wak, in spite of various managerial flaws, is still kind of cool. This is important for the team going forward.
LHP Jason Vargas vs. RHP Kyle Davies. There’s a non-zero chance we could win this one.
