What You Need to Know

The Royals Roll On

by Daniel Rathman


The Monday Takeaway
Donnie Joseph allowed six runs yesterday. Donnie Joseph is a Royals reliever. Ergo, the Royals must have lost their series opener to the Tigers.

Until Monday, that logic was foolproof. Since the Royals entered the American League as an expansion club in 1969, 79 relievers sporting the royal blue had coughed up a half-dozen or more tallies in an outing. Each time that happened, the Royals suffered a defeat.

Not so last night at Comerica Park, however. Not so, because the Royals tagged Justin Verlander with seven total runs in the fifth and sixth innings.

Tigers were actually up 2-0 until that top of the 5th, not that it really matters.

I'm in a Scoresheet keeper league and we have another in-season draft coming up. I'm currently debating Holt or De La Rosa. Are either capable of sustaining their production?
