I'm choking from this drought. I just read a story about the Dust Bowl days in the Great Plains - all the blackness, the despair - and the Royals play this season is a re-enactment.

Thankfully, the Royals highly-coveted free agent signee, Brian Anderson, who GAVE UP MORE MONEY TO PITCH HERE, was on the mound last night. He's our ace, our stopper, our go-to guy!

B. Anderson (1-3): 4IP, 11H, 10R, 6ER, 0BB, 3K, 3HR
Season ERA: 7.14

Perhaps he's saving himself for big games, because he only threw 63 pitches. 47 of those pitches were for strikes (75% rate!), 45 of which were 83 mph "fastballs" that must have looked like those purple plastic bouncy balls in the supermarket to Jays' hitters.

I need a Royals vacation. I just going to ignore them for two weeks and then see where they are in mid-May. Good luck.
