Hide your women, Royals. The enlivened giant that is the Yankees arrives today in Kansas City, fresh from carving up the Fish with all the cocky assurance of Hung, the Top Chef uber-villan with the high-velocity knife skills. What was it–153 runs in 4 days? Impressive. Your defense has little hope. Even worse, on the mound tonite for this juggernaut: The Greatest Pitcher in Baseball History. Basically, poor Royals, you’re screwed. It’s hopeless.
Oh, we forgot the best part. With Cleveland and Boston going at it, if the Yanks take 2 of 3 in this series, they are mathematically guaranteed to make up ground in either the WC or division race. A sweep nets 2 games. Onward warriors! Let this be our thread for comment, posted early, as we are so
anxious for the bloodletting to commence.
