He’s given his all: The Story of Jeremy Guthrie in Kansas City

  He’s a great teammate, a great person, and he’s had his best days in Kansas City. Here’s a look at Jeremy Guthrie’s time in Kansas City. Jonathan Sanchez was awful. Not at all what the Royals were looking for when they traded Melky Cabrera to San Francisco for the veteran lefty. Sanchez was 1-6 with a 7.76 ERA for the Royals in 12 starts.
