The folks over at Royals Review have been tracking in awe the amount of games Trey Hillman and now Ned Yost have put Jason Kendall in the line-up.â†µ
At his age, it's questionable as to whether he can handle missing just four of 74 games. Nevertheless, that's what the Royals have done.â†µ
On Saturday, though, with the heat in Kansas City just miserable, Kendall gets a day off.â†µ
"With these days, as hot as it's going to be on back-to-back days, it's a good day to give Jason a day off," manager Ned Yost said. "I made that decision. He said, 'I just had a day off.' And I said, 'You've got another one.' "â†µ
We'll have to see what Royals Review thinks about two off days in one week for Mr. Kendall.
