I had a post all conjured up in my brain about how nice it was to have some balance in my day - one of the best games I've seen all year was being balanced beautifully by one of the worst.
Then Ryan LeFebvre started describing the lineup changes that had been made to prepare for the top of the 9th inning. Mike Aviles had already moved from SS to 2B to accommodate Tony Pena coming in at short, but then moved back to SS. Esteban German then came in to play 2B, and German looked wildly amused because...then I think LeFebvre stopped talking. He didn't need to say anything out loud; the camera slowly panning over to the pitcher's mound said more than an announcer ever could.
Tony Pena Jr.
This solves two major problems with the Royals roster.
1) TPJ no longer has to bat, and
2) Jimmy Gobble never has to come in to face more than one batter at once.
TPJ FOR CY YOUNG!
****UPDATE**** Oh looky! I found a video!
