How about this from the Royals?

Earlier today, from mlb.com -

...Called on to protect a 7-4 lead and notch his sixth save, Burgos displayed no control, walking the bases loaded before giving up a sacrifice fly to Jeff Conine and two-out RBI singles to Javy Lopez and Nick Markakis.

Jimmy Gobble relieved Burgos (1-1) and gave up a single to right by pinch-hitter Kevin Millar. Right-fielder Aaron Guiel's throw from right beat Javy Lopez to the plate, but Lopez tripped over the legs of catcher Paul Bako and slapped the plate before Bako could tag him...

and that's how you gift a series sweep to semi-struggling franchise.

How dreadful!

All I can ask is, why, and why bother?

Hey, imagine how much it would have sucked to have been one of the Royals out there losing the game.

If only we could get David Glass out there embarrassing himself. To have a few more dollars going toward the team would be nice. That greedy old skinflint dog. Grr.
