So which of the following is the most incredible:
A) That the Royals are 2-0?
B) That the Royals are 2-0 on the strength of a three-hit shutout against the mighty Tigers lineup?
C) That the Royals have started 2-0 only one other time in the past 28 seasons?
Whatever the case, not a bad start for pitcher/saberguy Brian Bannister, who allowed only two singles over seven innings in the 4-0 road win. In light of recent events, do you think the Mets might want him back in their rotation?
Anyway, enjoy it Kansas City (if you even took a break from obssessing over Roy Williams to notice.)
