First Royals shut out of the ex-Senators in Arlington since 1985. Boy -- 1985 -- that sure has a good sound to it. I'm still under no illusions. The Royals have plenty of holes in starting pitching and in offense, but it's still fun for them to get off to a solid start for the second season in a row. It's much more fun watching the games when they aren't already buried come April 15! And Greinke now with something like 33 straight scoreless innings going back to last season -- if you watched him tonight, you had to think that this a dude with premier stuff in MLB and now poised to take that next step to actually being one the premier starting pitchers in MLB. And just under ink to a brand new Royals contract to boot. That was very nice watching that.
