Good for TH and the Royals. I can't say I really think he is deserving but nice for KC to get a little positive PR every once in awhile.

And who's coaching the American League?

That's right ... Joe FREAKING Maddon of the defending AL Champion Tampa Bay Rays ...

It's fine pub until Joe Maddon reveals that his reason for walking Freddy Sanchez to pitch to Pujols was that Hillman thought Pujols would have trouble with Fuentes' delivery.

I think Greinke and Meche will get named. Meche will be the "extra" pitcher at the end of the bullpen.

Maybe. Meche hasn't had a great year. Soria was a lock until he got hurt.

That would be funny if it did not have so much truth in it.

Little high there. A manager might win or lose a team 10 games for the entire season.

A 3.31 ERA, ranking in the top 10 in the AL, doesn't impress you?

Impresses me plenty, although how he's doing it without strikeouts is a neat trick.

Problem is the Royals are no longer the cute story...they stink. As usual. Hard for me to see multiple representatives.

Ted Hillman should be congratulated, not reamed by message board geeks, for the accomplishment. Is he the manager, or position coach?

Congratulated for what exactly? Being terrible at his job? I mean, I'm not gonna go as far as to say I hope the plane's pitot tubes freeze over and the plane crashes, but I'd be okay with a lengthy, lengthy delay in his return to Kansas City.
