Big 4 game series. Probable starters:

Guthrie - Hughes
Shields - Sabathia
Davis - Nova
Santana - Pettitte

Lines up alright for us I think. Except Davis of course....

I dont like Santana pitching at Yankee Stadium especially considering that he still remains above the league average in HR/9 even though he's pitching half his games in the spacious K. Also, Guthrie has been beyond lucky during his entire stint with the Royals. His BABIP is .015 below his career average yet his line drive rate is slighty above average all while stranding 7% more base runners and striking out 1 less /9 than his career totals. I'm not exactly sure how he's doing it but I guess lets just hope it continues.

To be fair, Santana only gave up 2 HRs in 6 starts in the month of June. He had a rough May in that category, he gave up 9 in 5 starts.

Cant say that I disagree with you on Guthrie. But him going against Hughes doesn't scare me much.

Although we were just dominated by Tommy Milone so maybe Hughes should scare me...

Bottom 9, Up 4, Hoch puts 2 on and Holland puts another on. Then strikes out the side.

Holland was an absolute All-Star snub.

With as few people as there was at the end tonight...moving down would have been no problem. Saw a Royals win...good dealio.

I was glad to see Ned pull Houch immediately, no messing around.

I think that was the nastiest I've seen Holland all year. Hitting 97-99 regularly, devestating split and slider.

The movement on Hollands pitches last night was insane.

This is the Holland the Royals have wanted all year. He's not trying to be so precise. He's rearing back and throwing with fire and that's when his pitches really starting dancing and moving like crazy. When his splitter and slider is on, he is really tough to get a hit off of. Especially when his fastball is reaching 99.

I forget who it was that made the last out, but he wasn't even swing at Hollands pitches, he was just trying to foul them off because he really didn't have a shot. It was like a little kid up there.
Holland hitting 99 with that movement isn't fair.

I don't think many outside of Royals country realize how good he has been this year.

A guy like Holland could be a big trade target at the deadline. It would be interesting to know what his value would be. Personally I'd trade a closer for a good bat anyday of the week. But again...not sure what exactly we could get for him.
