If you'll permit me, I need a moment to bask in the glow of first place. My Royals, the lowly team in KC that for the longest has had little to shout about, they are in first place. They are getting there thanks in no small part to the arm of a kid who's not yet 25. Zack Greinke has won his first 6 starts of the season and last night he shutout the White Sox, striking out 10 and dropping his ERA to a minuscule 0.40.
I link to Joe Posnanski's blog over there on the right. He's a columnist for the KC Star and one heck of a writer. You don't have to like sports to enjoy reading him. At least I don't think so. He was at the game last night. Here's his report.
