I think what few were on the bandwagon in april appear to be abandoning ship.
Very depressing and frustrating road trip.

Last night was bad. Guthrie hasn't been that bad in a while. If they don't take this series from the Disastros, people are going to be jumping off that bandwagon FAST.

Where is the blame to be put...a few weeks ago they were 7 games over .500 playing with energy and enthusiasm...Now its hum drum...hanging heads..no energy type efforts. Escobar is my standard for how this team performs and he looks like he could care less about being there. This has got to be all put on Ned. Drop kick that guy out of there.

We shouldn't just throw it all on Ned. There are only 2 blameless people right now in my mind, maybe more if I think more about it:

Alex Gordon
James Shields

Another joke lineup that still hasnt scored tonight vs the worse team in baseball. Oh who am I kidding presently the Royals are the worse. Did you catch Neddys spot on 610 sports today. Stated that the fans had too high expectations...errr hello Ned, we expect you to coach this supposively talented teams to wins over the crappy Disastros and the Athletics. Sure I can see them losing to the Yankees or Detroit.

But not beating the teams you should beat is a load of crap. Good thing I am not the radio interviewer I would put those questions about underperforming to crap teams right in Yost's face. Fire that clown...

Yep...FIRE YOST NOW....Yosts states that no Royal fans at the games actually complain like they do on call in shows on 610. Well no sh-it Braniac Yost...When you went on this road trip the team was several games above .500. Lose this one and come back to the K under .500, he will hear it from the fans on friday.

Look at our lineup tonight, I mean its really really embarrassing.

Plenty of blame to go around, but Yost was bad when we were winning, and is even somehow worse when we are losing.

Lost in this bullshit is Gordon is having an amazing season.

<sigh>

Maybe they'll pull this one out, but wow, taking on water pretty quickly. Good to see the pressure increasing on Yost, even if it is somewhat misplaced in some cases (not necessarily on this board).

Just a quick glance at the lineup. Four out of the nine hitting .205 or worse. You simply can't have that, even in injury situations.

At least Gordo is red-hot.

RBI single by Moose. Maybe that will help jump-start him.

They'll win tonight. They'll score one more with the bases loaded here.

Good to see an RBI single from Moose. If he would have struck out, I may have cried.

Well, I was right. Wasn't expecting them to walk one in though.

To the above point about Gordon--dude is incredible. He's hitting almost .450 against lefties this year if I'm not mistaken. That's incredible.

It may have taken him awhile to find it, but boy has he become a great player, defensively and now offensively. I read Rany Jazayerli's blog the other day and he was suggesting that the Royals lock up Hosmer and Moose long-term right now, when their stock is low. Even if they overpay, it's so unlikely that neither will pan out that it's worth risking that only one might. Hopefully neither takes as long as Gordon.

For the record, even if Moose would have hit a grand slam in the top of the eighth, I still think he should be in Omaha right now.
