http://www.blogtalkradio.com/kansascitybaseballvault/2017/09/07/ugly-numbers-and-call-ups-bp-kansas-city-episode-70.mp3 Last week was very bad, but this week was…not *as* bad! The Royals suffered some ugly, ugly blowouts, and it seems like Jake Junis and Scott Alexander are the only pitchers doing well who are healthy right now. That’s not ideal.
