They are 6-3 in their last nine series, including @ DET, @ BOS, vs. SEA, @ ANA...pretty impressive.

I think the true test of their play right now is sitting right in front of them, though.

4 @ MIN
3 @ NYY

If they win this road trip, then I'll be impressed.

The way they have been playing since early June, they could be within 10 of .500 this year. If not, next year they will be over.

Going 5-4 at Detroit, Boston and Cleveland didn't impress you? All three would be in the playoffs today.

Of course it impressed me...that's why I pointed out that they won two of those series.

Look, the Royals have had one annoying tendency this season...following up a good stretch with a 4- or 5-game losing streak.

I've been watching them very closely and the team on the field right now isn't the same team they had out there in May. This team is capable of ripping off a .600+ month-long streak and I want to see them do it more than anyone.

If the starters can keep it close, the bullpen stays strong and these young hitters continue to play clutch baseball they can win their third straight road trip.

That's impressive any way you look at it.

I have one fear - the bullpen wearing out in mid-August. If it can hold on until September, 75 wins isn't out of the realm of possiblity.
