Jason Hammel vs Brian Bannister
Clear. Winds blowing in from left field at 5-10 m.p.h. Game time temperature around 75.
Royals fans and Rockies fans both take some pride in their teams'recent Interleague records. Without any playoff appearances of late to hang their hat on, for Kansas City fans in particular Inter-league results seem to be a totem to keep some measure of respect. The gist of the conclusion: "Our team sucks, but at least we're not as bad as any team in the NL."
It's a false conclusion based on a flawed, too small sample, and while the Rockies of the last three years have certainly been enablers for these sadly deluded Royals fans, I think it's time for our team to let K.C. know the ugly truth.
