Royals making Indians feel blue

The Royals sure are giving the Tribe fits this season. The Indians lost their fourth game in a row to the Royals out of five meetings this season. The Tribe held leads of 2-0, 4-2, and 6-4 in the ballgame but ran into a rough sixth inning where Kansas City put up six on the board behind catcher John Buck’s three-run homer. Starter Jason Johnson left in the sixth with the lead but Danny Graves promptly gave up the bomb to put the Royals ahead as they went on to win 10-7 at Kauffman Stadium. Victor Martinez, Travis Hafner and Aaron Boone each had two RBI for the Indians.

This is a little frustrating to say the least. Almost half of the Royals’ wins this season have come against the Tribe. I think it’s time that we cut the string with Graves and bring up a young arm like Carmona or Andrew Brown to take his place in the bullpen. Yes, he’s a veteran and people may say “give him time” but it really doesn’t look like he has anything left in the tank.
