How many stinkin' times did we need a sweep in KC and couldn't get the job done, and now they sweep when it doesn't matter. LOL, baseball is cruel.
Six in a row, why not? The kids can play.

Frank pretty much throwing Rios' under the bus on the postgame. Maybe Peavy too. Said the team had bad chemistry all year and needed to be broken up. They only got rid of two big guys, but feels like a different team.

Pretty much, although, let's not forget this win streak is at the hands of the Twins who are probably worse than we are and the fading Royals. I expect a pretty cold dose of reality tomorrow when the Rangers come to town.

At least the booing Rios is sure to receive appears to be justifiable.

We also stopped the clowning on the base paths and in the field, for the most part. That cost us a lot of early games. Rios looks the same on Texas as he did here with his "I dont' give a ****" demeanor. I'm sure he does give a ****, but I can see how that kind of demeanor, without strong leadership, could infect.
But we don't need to kill ourselves to win 70 games this year.

There are some guys that just love to play when nothing is on the line. Dunn seems to be one of them, maybe beckham is also.

I'd still like the higher draft pick, too.

He got hurt early and didnt start playing much till they were cooked. Maybe hes not that type of player, I hope that we will see if he does well on a winning team in the next couple years.

It's not even that. I want to win all the games we can....but it isn't that important; certainly not important to risk wearing out arms of young pitchers.

Last night he does it to protect a 3 run lead.
We really need an upgrade in the dugout...badly.

He went on a tear when he came back from 2 months of DL and rehab. Roughly the same time as Dunn's revival. He's only played in 73 games this season. Otherwise he's been a disappointment at bat since August of 2009. NoNeck may be right.

OR....The crouch is working for Beckham and Dunn's finally going to the left side and shortening up with two strikes.

I love crushing the already slim Royals playoff chances. Let's do the same to Cleveland. And make Miggy field a bunch of bunts. If I can't be happy no one can.
