Panther of the Game:
It was only against Kansas City, but a win is a win, and remember, the Royals swept the A's in Oakland earlier this year, back when Rich Hardon still had functioning appendages.
Hopefully Dallas McPherson made a case for staying in the lineup, going 3 for 3 with a run and 2 RBI. He is probably being shopped in trade talks what with Steve Physioc giving player of the game honors to Orlando Cabrera (who did just fine, no doubt), nothing like a vanilla middle-America carpetbagger like Physioc to stick close to the Stoneman Politburo's party line of who is in and who is out. Sorry it has to end this way D-Mac.
