ABOUT LAST NIGHT…
Missouri’s Phil Pressey is on his way to the NBA. The move is a tough one to measure as Pressey has been both the whipping boy for this season and the hope for next season. Pressey will likely be a second round pick if he is drafted.
Hey, we’re still over .500. And still in first place, too? WHAT IS GOING ON?! Jeff Francoeur and Billy Butler each had solo home runs and Bruce Chen was excellent in long relief in KC’s 3-0 win. It took Wade Davis 96 pitches and a couple of heart attacks to get through five innings. He walked three and gave up four hits but he did strike out six while not allowing any runs. Progress? After a day off today, the Blue Jays will come to town for three games starting Friday. Luis Mendoza, James Shields, and Ervin Santana are on tap to start the three games.
