That’s pretty much how Ned Yost, James Shields and Mike Moustakas summed up Monday night’s 8-1 loss to the Yankees. The score was still 2-1 going into the top of the seventh inning, then Martin Prado homered on a 1-1 pitch to put the Yankees up by two. After that, the hits just kept on coming.
Richie Incognito, who played in college at Nebraska, was suspended in November last season for bullying teammate Jonathan Martin, and he has a reputation as one of the NFL’s dirtier players. On the other hand, he was a Pro Bowl selection in 2012.
As much as we want to see connections from game to game and think we can divine defining moments and identify pivot points to this season, the game just doesn’t lend itself to that. Every game is its own entity in baseball, its own compartmentalized picture within a picture. Simply put, how the Royals will fare is a completely day-to-day proposition of never-ending turns.
Remember when Ned Yost was criticized for refusing to bring Kelvin Herrera into a game in the sixth inning? Well, since that game, Yost has changed his policy. He brought both Kelvin Herrera and Wade Davis into Tuesday night’s game earlier than usual … and it didn’t work. Herrera and Davis gave up three runs and the Royals’ 5-4 lead and the Chicago White Sox beat Kansas City 7-5.
