Default *Official* 'Breaking A Royal Pain In The Ass' KC vs SOX 4/1 Postgame Thread

No April Fools!

Sale looked really solid today, and good to see Robin's bullpen moves work as he planned them.

If the White Sox are to have any chance this season, they need to break this hex.

Undefeated to start the season!!!!

A.J. who??

Kidding aside, so glad to see Flowers show some promise, and Sale continuing right where he left off last season!

Damn it feels good to be a gangster!

It was really sad to read pre-game previews in the media, and 75% of the article was talking about how exciting the Royals were. Maybe KC will go to the playoffs this year, but I'm glad we gave them a fight today and hope we continue to do so.

Great job by Sale!

Kind of a nail biter, but I'll take it.
Sale = Awesome.

On the bright side, the Sox are now more than 1/2 way through his contract!

Great game. The most important thing I learned is that Hawk's 2013 crush is Salvador Perez.

It was great to see the team find a way to beat a guy that don't walk people and scatters hits. We got a couple duck snorts and made some dazzling plays in the field. Sale hunkering down in the 3rd inning was big. I wouldn't have pitched to Francoeur in the 7th or 9th, but what do I know?

Good thing Hahn and Co. don't listen to the all-volunteer General Manager Corps at WSI and got rid of Flowers (the only run scored) and sent Beckham to the bench (several game-saving flashes of the leather).
