chicago comes to town for a weekend series the first weekend of august. ken griffey jr. joins the sox for the first time since the trade. nothing fancy here...royals are 1 game over .500 since the all-star break. the sox just had a tough series with the twins. after a sweep against the a's, taking 2 out of 3 would be big for the young royals.

fridays matchup has luke hochevar (6-8) going against javier vazquez (7-9)...luke is 1-1 in his last 3 starts, and vazquez is 0-2

discuss this series here. like i said...nothing fancy...just an attempt at a game thread. go royals!!!

Looks like we lost 4-2, Vasquez pitched a good game for them.

Loving the game thread rhensley, if you want inspiration check out the Phillies game threads, they're sick

Who would? No mods go in here, no TM for here.

I say we request to the mods and wrigs that rhensley should be TM

The Sox will win this I'm thinking. No chance for the Royals.

game 2...wow! 9-7 royals!!! billy butler, miguel olivo, ross gload, mike aviles, AND esteban german all got 3 hits, and the royals punch out 19 as a team. german had a triple, and butler, olivo, and jose guillen all homered.kyle davies gets the win...now 5-2. soria walks 1 and strikes out 2 for his 31st save.

missing from the lineup for saturday's game were david dejesus (ankle), and mark grudzielanek (ankle, 15 day dl)

the royals go for the series win today, sending zach grienke to the mound against richard 0-1.

Wow. That's amazing. Another 19 hit game. And all without Grudz. Is DeJesus playing?
