Royals' reliever Vin Mazzaro's line from last night - 2.1 IP, 11 H, 14 ER, 3 BB, 2 Ks.
For Royals' manager Ned Yost to leave him out there that long tells me a couple of things.
1. Mazzaro was complaining about playing time and Yost was making a point.
2. Someone in the Royals' front office thought Mazzaro was being misused and Yost was making a point.
The only other logical explanation is the bullpen was worn out, but the Royals' were rained out Sunday and Jeff Francis threw a complete game Saturday.
Afterwards, Mazzaro was sent back to AAA. Here's hoping he regains confidence and makes it back to the big leagues.
