Ned Yost's response when asked about the pennant race.

http://kansascity.royals.mlb.com/news/ar...jsp&c_id=kc

Mathematically I agree with him, but realistically I'm not so sure. We do seem to be winning more recently, winning 8 of our last 11, and Grienke is on the bump vs some scrub for Seattle tonight. I'm just saying a little momentum going into the all-star break wouldn't hurt.

It wouldn't be the most incredible comeback in sports history, but being a royals fan for the last 15 year, it would definitely seem like it.

I saw that in The Star today. Even though its unrealistic, I still like his mentality and enthusiasm. That kind of thing can carry over to a team's success.

They're 12.5 games back in both the division and the wild card. Reel off 8 to 10 wins in a row and they're in it.

They are behind three teams, so the "games back" means virtually nothing.

If K.C. is serious about contending, it needs to get to .500 first, then see how many games it's back.

Right now, the Royals aren't sniffing .500, so they're not in the race.

Interestingly enough, Royals were 8 games back on this date last year too The central standings were almost a mirror image of this year lol. So yah...doesn't mean much

http://espn.go.com/mlb/standings/_/date/20090706

One more win than last year, guess that's improvement right? I guess we'll see if Yost is really an improvement or not, were on completely level ground with last year at this point forward

On may 6 last year we were 2 games up in the division, so last years numbers are a little flawed since we got off to such a hot start.

Fact is we've gained ground with Yost as manager. I watched all of last nights game, and there seems to be a new (winning) attitude with this team.

Funny how the new winning "attitude" coincides with playing bad players less.

And bunting in the first inning less.
