I'm not getting my hopes up just yet but this last week of baseball for KC was crazy. The bounces are going their way right now unlike at the start of the season. If they could just hold on until the ASG, maybe that our time slogan will come true.

Always good to get a series win over the red birds too!

I get my hopes up too easily, only for the Royals to let me down, go on a 5 game skid. Would love to see them get back to .500, then see what happens.

A sweep of Houston would be nice, especially with a difficult 6 game homestand on the horizon against St Louis and Tampa Bay.

I just want to watch some meaningful baseball games in July/August before football season.

Is that too much to ask?

A lot of winnable games leading into the Break.

That early losing streak and injuries hurts all the more.

I suggest sending a gift of pie to the club house. You'll be surprised at how much this does to lift their spirits and bring out the best in them.

Love beating the Cardinal Morans but 5 games below .500? Time for a 12 game losing skid.....that is just how KC rolls.

Getting more and more important that Dayton find a way to get Myers and Odorizzi up and playing regularly. Don't underestimate the impact adding those two (along with Cain and Perez) could have...spin some bullpen depth off for another reliable starter and things could get pretty interesting.

If they do call up those four players, who would you send down?

For one or two bags of baseballs?


This is also when I bring up that I think we should have traded Soria a little over a year ago.

I think a replacement zipper for the bag of balls we got in the Jermaine Dye trade would do just fine.

Yes, that was the only painful part about reading Moneyball. It sucked at the time but then I had to read about it later...

Agree with all that, except it's time for Mitch Maier to go bye-bye. Dyson should be kept on the roster as a late-inning pinch runner.

I'm not sure how or why Maier has stayed on this team for as long as he had.

Brain fart on my part. Definitely keep Dyson over Maier.
