Nice start especially from their starting pitchers. Except for the ridiculous two game interleague series agains Atlanta, they've played teams that have been either poor or cold.

We'll see in a couple of weeks but my bold prediction that Ned Yost would be the first manager sacked isn't looking very good.

Bump - taking 3/4 from Boston and basically winning every series since the all-star break is giving me a pretty big boner.

Don't think we can make the wild card or win the division because detroit is sick.... but we might just be one big HR guy away from being a potential playoff team in '14

Doubt it. They have outplayed the Tigers all year so I'm just hoping to win the series.

Royals are in good shape and the acquisition of Bonerface only adds to the speed already on hand. He plays some tragic defense though, so don't expect a Cain/Dyson compliment in LF or wherever he mostly plays (2B?). If they weren't in the Tigers division I'd be rooting for them, heck of a second half run to even be in the conversation IMO.

Well, a 2-1 win against Verlander is a pleasant surprise.

When did Frank White retire?

Every team looks real when they're coming off winning 10 out of 11. I still don't trust their offense--they're last in the AL in OPS+ and have the least HRs in the majors.

I keep looking at this team and thinking, "Who are these guys?"

Some very nice young players for sure. That being said, I am rooting hard for them to win the Central and set up an ALDS match-up with the Orioles, as the Tigers rotation (Verlander's struggles notwithstanding) scares me in a playoff series.

Great season so far, and I hope they keep it going.

Another come from behind victory for the Royals, down 1 zero after 7 and win 6-1 (disclaimer playing Twins), but this team is looking more and more like the real deal.

A lock down end of the pen shortens any game too. Wade Davis is out of his mind crazy dominant this season.

They tried Davis at the back of the rotation twice and he was terrible. Then they give him 8th-inning duty and he's unhittable.

With Davis and Holland to pitch the 8th and 9th backed by spectacular outfield defense (if a ball to the outfield has a bow on it and stays in the park, it's caught), it's really tough to win from behind. You gotta take care of it by the 5th or 6th.

Or... Survive the 9th and win it in extra innings. :wall:

If I had to guess the ceremonial first-pitch thrower, is go with Willie Wilson. George Brett is a VP with the team, Frank White is running for office. Wilson has rallied from drug problems and bankruptcy and put his life back together. Would be nice to see him out on the field next week.

OK, Great Season, now I hope they no longer keep it going.

Excited for the start of the 2015 Royals campaign.

  • Royals payroll over $100M
  • Ventura locked up for the next 5 years
  • Holland, Davis, Herrera - wicked shutdown bullpen

Lots of optimism in KC these days.

Couldn't make it to opening day - got tickets for the family for next weekend.
