Yep, I'd agree with that.

Split 4 with Boston, take 2 out of 3 against Miami, and see what happens with 5 against Detroit

The only reason KC should lose to Miami is if Fernandez pitches, which I think he will since he pitched this afternoon. The pitching matchups for the Boston series are really good. Chen vs Lester, Santana vs Peavy, Guthrie vs Doubront and Shields vs Lackey.

I don't about really good matchups against Boston, but winning tonight would go a long way to possibly getting 3 out of 4.

And yes, Fernandez pitches the middle game of the series when we play Miami. He's damn good....that's a game where the pitching better be good on our side as well.

I'd be happy going 7-5 over these 12 games, however arranged. Ecstatic with 8-4.

Ideally, in those 12, you manage 7-9 wins. It would be fantastic if the Royals split with Boston, sweep Miami, and take 3 of 5 from Detroit. That's 8 wins. I think they will get 7.

I'm going to the Tuesday game v. Miami to see the Royals and to see Fernandez pitch. That guy is something special.

51 games left. Can the Royals go 30-21 and if so is 88-74 good enough for a wildcard spot.??

Since the start of the post-All Star game win streak, KC's pitching/defense is unbelievable. Excluding Shields' dud 7-run outing a couple nights ago, the Royals are giving up under 2 runs a game comfortably.

Keep thinking the Royals will be the Royals and go on a losing streak, but instead they're really looking like a playoff team. Still wouldn't bet $10 the Royals get a wildcard berth, but if they take 3 of 4 from Boston, 88-92 wins doesn't sound so crazy.

Hell of a way to start the series last night.

Chen was unreal.

Rany put out a pretty crazy stat last night on twitter.

As of 9 PM last night, Bruce Chen has the lowest ERA (1.90) of any lefty pitcher with at least 5 starts. Clayton Kershaw is 2nd.
