  1. “Losing the division title the way we did last year was painful enough, especially to a team that couldn’t even beat Oakland once,” Ilitch explained. “Then to find out that Hunter had to rub it in our faces with the champagne – well, that was just too much. I’m glad he’s not seriously hurt, but I’d be lying if I said I was upset about the beaning.”

    lol, how can anyone not like Illitch?

  2. I’m pretty sure that’s a fake article, but funny. The quote from Greinke sounds faked.

    Greinke meanwhile, seemed a little confused about the turn of events. “The last thing I want to do is get dragged into the middle of this,” he commented. “I don’t even drink champagne, so I’ll probably return it or give it to some Royals fans who are stuck watching us play baseball all summer.”

  4. Funny stuff

    I’m no fan of Hunter either (although I think Craig and him work out in the offseason)

  6. At least there’s a 70% chance he’s not below average?

  7. I think that’s correct based on the one start. Of course, those calculations are assuming all we know about a pitcher is the result of one great start. In Durbin’s case, we also know he has a career ERA of 6.17 over 172 innings–well over one run above the league-average ERA.
