Sidney Ponson, RH Jose Freaking Lima, RH (5-1, 4.93) (0-3, 6.85)
Off-days are the pits, and an off-day where nothing else of any real interest goes on is even worse.
Let me go ahead and say this, at the risk of a jinx effect: Sidney Ponson has been the man in his last five starts, 4-0 with a 2.91 ERA. I won't argue with that.
Lima Time has seen more walks than strikeouts and a completely dismal line overall so far. I hate to root against Lima Time, but let's just keep him spiraling.
Game time is 8:10 on CSN and that awesome Royals network. For the first time in about a week, I'm going to be able to just sit down, relax and watch a ballgame. Thank God.
