I’m not sure why Gil Meche hasn’t been placed on the DL. Surely something is wrong with him. His cutter isn’t cutting. His breaking pitches aren’t breaking. And his fastball is up. If something isn’t wrong with him, then he, and the Royals, are in big trouble.
Sidney Ponson and Ron Mahay continue to struggle. They gave up a combined five runs. Jamey Wright gave up four runs.
All the while, the offense was asleep again.
At least tomorrow is Zack Greinke Day.
