What a disaster. First, Trey Hillman leaves Gil Meche in too long. Then Alberto Callaspo boots a ball. Then Hillman brings in Mahay to face Grady Sizemore (a lefty—something Jimmy Gobble excelled at in the past) and he gives up a three-run bomb. It was a horribly mismanaged game by Hillman. The Farnsworth debacle coupled with Hillman’s poor decisions early this season have cost the Royals as many as five games.
