<<<Runelvys Hernandez, who opened the season 4-0 and keyed Kansas City's surprising surge into first place, was sent down to Double-A Wichita on Aug. 17. Hernandez (7-5) was roughed up for nine runs on nine hits in just 3 1/3 innings of a 14-5 loss to Minnesota on Aug. 16. It was his seventh start since coming off the disabled list for inflammation in his pitching elbow. Since being activated, he appeared to lose velocity and confidence despite going 3-2. "We'd like to see him throw his sinker more. We'd like to see him have better command of his fastball," general manager Allard Baird said. "And hopefully he's back here helping us win in September." >>>

Weaver kills the Sox when he played for Detroit, now is killing us again with the crap he is throwing against the Royals. David Wells does the same thing.

However, the Royals have a tougher series this go-around against the Yanks facing Weaver, Pettite and Clemens against Cy Lima, Cy Appier and Cy Gobble.
