    I hope Mays outperforms the last ex Royal

    I hope his performance is marginally better than the last great theft from Kansas City, Roger Nelson, or was that Rich Gale

    Danny Jackson?
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Mays will pitch an outstanding game 7 innings vs. Pedro with 3 hits and 1 run. Bullpen blows up again and well you know the rest of the story.........

    I was there.

    Here's the recap of the carnage:

    http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/recap?gameId=230528115

    After the first inning was over, I walked out to buy a beer. As the beer man was pouring my brew, I told him something to the effect of "many more innings like that & I'll be the best customer you've ever had."

    He looked up, saw my Reds hat, then just started laughing.

    Edit: And it's also worth noting that Jung Bong pitched the final 3 innings for a save that night.

    (Bong came in with a 12-2 lead and notched a save? Has any pitcher ever been spotted a bigger lead than Bong had that night and notched a save?)

    And after Boone yanked Austin in the 1st, who did he turn to in the 'pen? Joey Hamilton. When Joey Hamilton gets the call to relieve Jeff Austin, you know your team has the worst pitching staff the game has ever seen...

    Twilight Zone stuff.

    I don't even want to venture a guess at what Mays line will be tonight, it could be scary.
