My brother and I were at the game last night. We were starting to feel bad for Andrew Miller, but then the Royals committed a major flub to help him out. With 5 runs in and nobody out, Joey Gathright struck out trying to bunt and Pudge threw Alex Gordon out after Gordon wandered off second. Miller still didn't get out of the inning though.
After that exciting first inning, the rest of the game was terribly boring, but at least they moved it along. Looking for the sweep this afternoon!

Overall, things are looking up for the Royals. All of this progress has happened in just 1 year, since Dayton Moore took over as General Manager. As a life long Royals fan, this is a fun time to watch the boys in blue!

Let's get this out of the way quickly…
Frank White does not need to be the next manager of the Kansas City Royals. Yes, I know that White wants to manage in the big leagues (or, at least he did at one time. I'm not so sure that's still the case), and I'm sure many older Royals fans would love to see White in the dugout every day. But that scenario is nothing but trouble.
Look, I respect White as a person and as a player. He is truly beloved in Kansas City. I'm confident he would be a great manager. But he should manage somewhere else. Why? Think about it. What happens to every manager in baseball eventually? They get fired. What Kansas City GM wants to be the one to fire the beloved Frank White?
Let's not put Frank through that. Let's not have the talk radio shows buzzing every day second guessing a bunt or a pitching change. Let's just let Frank be Frank. He's a great ambassador for the Royals, and it should stay that way.
